The War for Wakanda expansion is the next free update to our game, and it’s the biggest one yet. Whether you are new Marvel Avengers or one of our veteran players with multiple max level heroes, there’s never been a better time to play. Let’s dive into whatever is coming in the Expansion.
War for Wakanda
We know how important story is to all of you, so we’ve worked incredibly hard to create an epic Black Panther tale for you that adds hours of new cinematic content to the game.
War for Wakanda is an original story that takes place in our Marvel Avengers universe. The expansion resumes years after the events of A-Day – T’Challa rules Wakanda and the country’s borders are closed to everyone … until the devious Ulysses Klaw finds a way in. of Vibranium, T’Challa must team up with aliens – the Avengers – in order to protect his home.
Our team worked with Black Panther comic book writer Evan Narcisse to create our original story. Narcissus is known for the popular “Rise of the Black Panther” comic!
Enter: Black Panther
Black Panther is our new playable character in War for Wakanda, and his martial arts-inspired playstyle is totally different from the other Avengers on our list. Some of his moves include: Pounce, which allows him to jump and attack enemies; Percussion Blast, which drains your intrinsic meter with a blast of stored kinetic energy; and Devastating Daggers, which is a ranged attack that allows you to deal increased damage to enemies encrusted with your daggers.
T’Challa’s heroic assault is King’s Mercy, who sees him summon a vibranium spear and hurl it at hapless enemies. Her heroic support is Kimoyo Beads, who flies over the area to support allies or stun enemies. Finally, his Ultimate Heroic leans into the spiritual side of his character, summoning a spectral projection of the panther goddess Bast to grant him a major damage buff.
The enemies of Wakanda
War for Wakanda introduces a variety of new enemy types, including armored Vibranium mercenaries and grunts armed with Sonic powered weapons. Klaw also commands an army of Crawlers big and small. If you’re into our villain sectors, the expansion includes two new fights against Klaw in its comic-inspired sound form, as well as a fight against its chief lieutenant: Crossbones. The Wakandan Jungle is a dangerous place!
The jungles of Wakanda
Our expansion introduces an entirely new (and massive) biome to explore. The Wakandan Jungle is more treacherous than previous biomes. There are traps you will need to avoid, defense weapons you will need to avoid, and light puzzles in ancient structures that you will need to solve to progress in certain areas.
You will also be able to explore a new outpost: Birnin Zana, the capital of Wakanda, where you will meet familiar faces like Shuri and Okoye.
A cast of stars
We have attracted some other amazing vocal talent for War for Wakanda. Chris Judge will play T’Challa, Debra Wilson (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order) will play Okoye, Erica Luttrell (Westworld)
Our actors worked closely with Beth McGuire, the vocal coach behind the accent in The Black Panther from Marvel Studios. Beth worked with each actor over several VO sessions to make sure their Wakandan accents were correctly rendered.
User interface updates
Finally, the War for Wakanda expansion comes with a major overhaul to our user interface, putting all the character tabs on one easy-to-navigate page. This change stems from community feedback, and it will allow you to equip and get back into the game faster than before.
