The brief trailer re-tells the story of Prince T’Challa, leading up to the events of War for Wakanda. Narrated by Okoye, the animated teaser provides a closer look at T’Challa‘s life alongside his sister Shuri following the death of King T’Chaka. Okoye expresses fear and doubt over T’Challa’s role as the Black Panther, further wondering if their home of Wakanda will be able to withstand the looming threat of Ulysses Klaue.
The teaser, which seemingly sports original art, also hints at the role of The Avengers in War for Wakanda. Okoye speculates as to the involvement of the nearly reformed team of superheroes, questioning their motivations for interfering with Wakandan affairs. “Nor did I expect the Avengers would be on their way here. Will they help us, or hinder us?” wonders Okoye.
War for Wakanda is the first major expansion for Marvel’s Avengers, adding Black Panther as the latest playable character and an entirely new zone: Wakanda. Beyond those significant features, it also adds two new villains (one of whom is Ulysses Klaue), new Threat Sector and Drop Zone missions, the Birnin Zana outpost and a bundle of new cosmetics and gear. Developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix will provide a comprehensive breakdown of War for Wakanda during an upcoming War Table event, scheduled for Aug. 16.
Since Marvel’s Avengers launched in 2020, the game has received several minor content updates. The most significant post-launch DLCs introduced two versions of Hawkeye: Kate Bishop followed by Clint Barton a few months later. Despite these updates, many fans consider Marvel’s Avengers to be a rough experience due to its often monotonous gameplay and over-reliance on a live-service model.
