Marvel's Avengers Winter Soldier Gameplay
Winter Soldier is described as an offensive jack-of-all-trades. The development team stated that Winter Soldier will be a purely assault-focused hero, capable of dealing massive damage to enemies in a variety of ways. Additionally, Winter Soldier's aforementioned versatility will likely give players a lot of freedom when building him.
The developers went on to state, "players will find multiple different builds and playstyles that embody that character fantasy." Whether you enjoy playing with ranged, melee, or assassin-type Heroes, Winter Soldier can seemingly do it all!
Winter Soldier's move set is said to be both a combination of Captain America's and Black Widow's, while at the same time entirely unique (making full use of his cybernetic enhancements). Players can also find all new animations, a new full skill tree, and heroic abilities when entering a mission as Winter Soldier.
Winter Soldier will also launch with his own heroic mission chain. Players who complete this will be rewarded with Bucky's iconic outfit.
