Avengers’ War for Wakanda Expansion Gets August Release Date

Square Enix has announced when the Black Panther focused expansion for Marvel’s Avengers will launch.

If you’re still playing Marvel’s Avengers or looking for a reason to get back into it, better mark your calendars. The Black Panther: War for Wakanda story expansion is coming on August 17th, free to all players. Before that, on August 16th, there will be a new “Wartable” live stream to show off more of the DLC and what players can expect.

The War for Wakanda expansion adds to a game already packed with content, including eight other playable heroes, more than 25 hours of single-player campaign content (from the core release through the Expansion), and endless multiplayer action for up to four players. In addition, new modes and events are being introduced regularly, and dozens of outfits inspired by Marvel comics and movies are available to customize players’ favorite Super Heroes.

About Marvel’s Avengers Expansion: Black Panther – War for Wakanda
The story of the free War for Wakanda expansion revolves around King T’Challa, the Black Panther, devoted protector and current ruler of Wakanda. Blindsided by a betrayal and the resulting tragedy, T’Challa finds it difficult to entrust his duty to anyone else, even his sister Shuri, while also confronting those who wish to do Wakanda harm. When arch-villain Klaw’s forces threaten Wakanda’s safety, T’Challa must take the fight right to them to defend everything and everyone he holds dear.

Players will experience the game’s story and additional missions in the ongoing Avengers Initiative in the lush jungles of Wakanda, an entirely new environment and sole location of the world’s Vibranium. They’ll also get to explore the Royal Palace that overlooks Birnin Zana, known as “The Golden City,” in a new Outpost that contains Shuri’s laboratory, Zawavari’s chambers, and the Wakandan War Room.
