Marvel's Avengers Black Panther expansion gets a cinematic trailer

Our first good look at Avengers' biggest expansion to date, coming August 2021.

Revealed today during Square Enix’s Summer Game Showcase, we now have our first good luck at the Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther expansion announced earlier this year: War for Wakanda.

Like the first two heroes added to the game (Kate Bishop and Clint Barton), War for Wakanda will tell an original Black Panther story with characters that both movie and comic fans will recognize. “Black Panther must defend Wakanda from Klaw, who seeks to steal Vibranium for his own desires,” reads the brief description below the trailer on YouTube.

Klaw is a longtime Black Panther villain, but if you’ve only seen the movies like me, you probably only know him as that guy with the beard that’s obsessed with Vibranium (portrayed by Andy Serkis).

Despite predictions that Avengers might be shifting to a free-to-play style, it looks like Crystal Dynamics is sticking to its guns with an initial buy-in and free expansions like this one. War For Wakanda is coming sometime in August 2021.

Nice to see Chadwick Boseman’s stunt double finally get his time to shine.
