The anticipated expansion will take players to the iconic African nation of Wakanda as they step into the shoes of T'Challa, Wakanda's king and superpowered protector. Black Panther will join Marvel's Avengers' roster of iconic superheroes, and the royal warrior promises to boast an entirely new fighting style. Wakanda itself will serve as a brand new region for players to explore, and the futuristic African nation will feature entirely new environments and items for players to encounter. The story of Marvel's Avengers, which was often praised by even the game's harshest critics, will also be expanded when War for Wakanda releases. A recently-released animated short, titled Children of T'Chaka, sheds some light on Wakanda and its major figures ahead of the expansion's August 17 release.
