Marvel’s Avengers expansion Black Panther – War for Wakanda releases August 17

The Marvel’s Avengers expansion Black Panther – War for Wakanda has a firm release date.

Coming August 17, the free update to Marvel’s Avengers will add Black Panther, the third new playable Super Hero.

The War for Wakanda expansion also brings with it two new villains, a new environment, new enemies, the Birnin Zana Outpost, new solo or multiplayer Drop Zone and Threat Sector missions, and more.

A Marvel’s Avengers War Table dedicated to the War for Wakanda expansion will premiere on Monday, August 16 at 10am PDT to offer an extensive look at new trailers and information on all there is to know about War for Wakanda.

An all-access weekend for the game kicks off today and runs through August 1 on PlayStation, PC, and Stadia. An all-access weekend for Xbox will be made available at a later date.

After the all-access period ends, players who buy the game will carry over all progress and purchases on the same platform they enjoyed during the all-access weekend, and the game is currently discounted by 40%.

To celebrate the free weekend, several limited-time special promotions are available for all players, including a 400% bonus to experience gained, a 50%-off sale in the in-game Marketplace, and the return of the Tachyon Anomaly event.
