Marvel’s Avengers: War for Wakanda trailer sets up Black Panther’s fight with Klaw
Marvel’s Avengers launched a new trailer for their upcoming Black Panther expansion, titled War for Wakanda, during Square Enix’s E3 2021 showcase today.
We had seen a brief teaser for Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther update, but today’s E3 trailer really dives into the story arc introduced in the next expansion. The new trailer features the conflict between Black Panther and international arms dealer Ulysses Klaue, aka Klaw, apparently the big bad of the expansion.
You’ll remember Klaw in the MCU, where he was played by Andy Serkis in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Black Panther. In the next expansion for Marvel’s Avengers, Klaw is in big trouble for invading Wakanda and trying to steal some of that sweet, sweet vibranium. It also looks like Shuri will star in the DLC, teasing Black Panther about him wearing his new costume in the Throne Room.
We don’t see any gameplay in the new Marvel’s Avengers War trailer for Wakanda, but we do see some of the superhero’s skillful combat moves in a cinematic way. He’s mainly the one who fights Ulysses Klaue in his usual human form, but in the end we see Black Panther taking on a much more formidable opponent: Klaw, Ulysses Klaue’s super-villain alter ego.
War for Wakanda follows March’s Future Imperfect expansion, which featured Hawkeye as a playable character as well as the Wastelands and Maestro region as the new villain. Prior to that, Taking Aim added Kate Bishop as a playable character and the Super-Adaptoid as a boss. As always, these updates for Marvel’s Avengers will be available at no additional cost to players.
There have been numerous updates to Marvel’s Avengers in recent months, with the game getting a full next-gen release in March earlier this year. Our practical impressions from news editor Ben Tyrer were positive, with him writing: “Now that I’ve seen what gaming can be at its best, I’d love to see him remove unnecessary baggage and fix it. promising second impression. ”
Marvel’s Avengers: War for Wakanda is a free update launching on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Google Stadia in August.
