Crystal Dynamics is slowly revealing more and more about The Winter Soldier and his role in Marvel’s Avengers. The developer released a new trailer that shows the hero in the game ahead of his November 29 release.
The video doesn’t fully break down his abilities, but does show how he can shoot and punch like the hybrid soldier he is. Crystal Dynamics noted that his origin story here is “faithful to his comic origins, yet unique” to this game.
In Marvel’s Avengers, he is devastated by the lost of Captain America, causing Shield agent Maria Hill to reach out and give him a new purpose. Although freeing captured inhumans doesn’t answer the questions he has about Captain America’s death, which antagonist Dr. Monica Rappaccini uses against him to capture him and reactivate his Winter Solider protocol. The Avengers rescue him but he is initially hesitant to join. However, he relents as more of Monica’s protocols are still out there.
The trailer gives a quick glimpse of his extra costumes, too, showing off four of his bonus costumes (in addition to his default). These range from a throwback to his pre-Winter Soldier days to an incognito suit.
