Marvel’s Avengers launched last year and ever since the team has been pushing new updates and heroes with free post-launch support for the game. Today, the newest expansion for the game titled “War For Wakanda” has finally been given a release date. 

Marvel's Avengers War For Wakanda Expansion Launching This August 

The expansion will launch on August 17 for all Marvel’s Avengers players, free of charge. There is also more information about this expansion coming during a War Table Livestream happening the day before on August 16. 

The Square Enix website has some additional details about what players can expect from the War For Wakanda expansion. 

“In addition to adding Black Panther, the War for Wakanda Expansion also brings with it new Villains, a brand-new environment to explore, new enemies, the Royal Palace Outpost, new solo or multiplayer Drop Zone and Threat Sector missions and more, adding the most content to Marvel’s Avengers since the game’s launch.”

The War Table live stream will deep dive into the gameplay, outfits, and more as well as some “special things” planned to go alongside it. While we don’t have a ton of new information about the expansion, it won’t be long before fans of the game can get their hands on it.
