War for Wakanda, the Black Panther-centric expansion for Marvel’s Avengers, will be arriving on August 17th according to a blog post by Square Enix. The expansion pack will bring much-needed new story content to the game.
The expansion will bring Black Panther as a new playable hero, as well as new hero outfits for the already existing ones. Additionally, new villain types like the Klaw and a new outpost will be added too. The Wakandan Jungle biome will also be added, with a bunch of new war zones and assignments rounding out the package.
Black Panther will also be voiced by Christopher Judge, who is most recently best known for playing Kratos in God of War.
The day before the expansion arrives, Square Enix will be holding an online War Table event to give a better look at everything in the expansion as well as some “special things” they didn’t specify.
