Crystal Dynamics has revealed that the next playable hero coming to Marvel's Avengers will be The Winter Soldier.

The news comes as part of the game's most recent development update, setting out the next few months of updates for Marvel's Avengers. First up is the 2.6 Update, which is due to release in September, and will add in the No Rest for the Wicked Warzone, a villain-focused adventure.

Arriving after the 2.6 update is the AIM's Cloning Lab, an Omega Level Threat that will bring new gear and an increased level cap.

And then, of course, we've got the arrival of The Winter Soldier, aka Bucky Barnes, as a playable character. He'll be a hybrid marksman and brawler hero, adding a new way to play to the game.

More information on Marvel's Avengers' Winter Solider will be coming after the 2.6 Update, but from the glimpse we get at him in the first image, it looks like he'll borrow from the character's appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, at least in his default outfit.
