Wakanda’s king will be ready to pounce onto Marvel’s Avengers game this August! We’ll be getting new locations and a new supervillain to contend with as we move along the roadmap of free DLC.
Like the other Avengers in the Square Enix title, Black Panther and Wakanda have taken many cues from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not a bad thing, but it always feels weird that characters are so close to their film counterparts. Imagine the licensing and royalty nightmare that would have been to get all the actors to sign off on the game. Phew.
This expansion will bring in a villain Ulysses Klaw. Better known simply as Klaw, the Master of Sound in this game’s universe appears to be a regular joe with a destructive sonic wave emitter on his right hand. Klaw’s comic book counterpart was a bit more robust in his powers, but for the sake of a slightly more grounded universe, a stripped-down Klaw could work.
Yes, again, it looks like Marvel’s Avengers is taking more notes from the live-action version than from the classic comic book material. The character model even resembles younger Andy Serkis.
Please pick a lane, Square Enix!
Black Panther must defend Wakanda from Klaw, who seeks to steal Vibranium for his own desires. Watch the cinematic trailer for Marvel’s Avengers Expansion: Black Panther – War for Wakanda. Available in August 2021!
For those who bought Avengers on Playstation, there’s still no sign of the platform’s exclusive Spider-Man. The game was originally launched in September 2020.
If you’ve passed on the game so far, let me tell you that it’s best to wait until more of this sort of DLC becomes available. Once the main campaign is finished, all that’s left is the grind. The more DLC available once you reach the story’s climax, the better.
