While Bucky Barnes and his Winter Soldier persona are set to arrive in Marvel’s Avengers soon, a skin from an MCU movie bearing his name is making its way to the game first. However, the costume is for his best pal, Captain America.
In a recent tweet sent out on the official Marvel’s Avengers Twitter account, Crystal Dynamics confirmed that the Captain America costume from the film Captain America: The Winter Soldier would be making its way into the game. The suit will be available in the game’s marketplace starting tomorrow, and will likely sell for 1,400 Credits (around $14), the same price that mostly every other MCU-based costume has been available for.

For Captain America, this is just a long line in several costumes made available for the iconic character, and one that was also hinted at a couple of weeks ago. Reliable Avengers insider Miller revealed the inclusion of The Winter Soldier costume by sharing what looked to be datamined images of the character. Miller has also teased the inclusion of a far more sinister, Hydra-controlled version of Captain America that will arrive in the game at some point in the future as well.
Captain America’s costume will arrive just before his best friend-turned-vigilante Bucky Barnes, which Crystal Dynamics said would be the next playable hero to the game. While no available date for Bucky’s inclusion has been confirmed, fans seem to think that he will enter the game some time in September, when the game’s next big update is set to land. Then, players will be able to pair up the longtime comic friends.
