When Hawkeye appears as a played character Marvel’s Avengers from Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics, it looks like the character can wear hearing aids, as he does in comics. In the Avengers War Table stream yesterday, Hawkeye was revealed as a playful character coming into play after the start. In addition to the noisy announcement, several works of conceptual art were revealed. One image of the character seems to show Hawkeye wearing hearing aids, though that’s not entirely clear. ComicBook.com contacted Crystal Dynamics to confirm and received the following response:
“While this is our unique Clint Barton Hawkeye performance, his character and narrative image is absolutely inspired by some of Hawkeye̵7;s best-known moments in comics. We hope to provide more information about our Clint Barton Hawkeye version soon.”
It will be interesting to know if Crystal Dynamics plans to include this aspect of Hawkeye history in the game! The character lost his hearing after meeting a villain during the performance of Matt Faction and David Aja during the solo comedy Hawkeye. It is not possible to say exactly whether this aspect will be included in the game, but it seems that the DLC refers to other Fraction and Aja actions, it seems that this could be a separate option!
Crystal Dynamics has shown great interest Marvel’s Avengers an engaging game. The title will provide several interfaces for visually impaired players, as well as updated controls. Last but not least, the game also introduces a new inhuman character named Cerise, who happens to be in a wheelchair. To make the character’s movements authentic, the team even invited accessibility specialist Cherry Thompson to present the movements to Cerise. Given Crystal Dynamics ’efforts, the game seems to be more representative of the real world, and Clint the Deaf seems to be a great fit for the game being developed by the developer.
Marvel’s Avengers will release PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Microsoft Windows and Google Stadia. You can check out all of our previous topics Marvel’s Avengers Right here.
