Mere hours ago, Square-Enix held their digital event as part of this year’s E3. In it, the public was given an update on the roadmap for their ongoing service title, Marvel’s Avengers.
In just over a week on June 22nd, players will be able to team up in the Cosmic Cube villain sector to battle the Scientist Supreme, Monica Rappaccini. In what appears to be a culmination of sorts for the post game content, the Avengers must stop Monica from unleashing the power of a Cosmic Cube, an artifact of immense power that the team knows will spell doom for the world should she use it.
Wasteland Patrol is a new open area coming to the game where you can freely explore the post-apocalyptic map introduced during the Future Imperfect expansion. You won’t be exactly wandering around aimlessly, however, as you’ll have to seek out clues that will help stop the coming apocalypse. Standing in your way are randomized, replayable boss encounters and of course loot that can be unearthed for intrepid explorers.
The big Marvel’s Avengers news during the event though was a fresh look at War for Wakanda, the next major update for the game. Wakanda itself will offer some much needed environmental diversity to Marvel’s Avengers with its lush jungles, ancestral temples, all mixed with the technological wonder of the hidden country.
Black Panther himself confidently walks into frame, set to “Make Way for the King” by Ohana Bam. Little is seen of him in motion, but from the few brief glimpses seen, he appears just as agile as he does in his cinematic appearances. A new enemy type is seen, a mechanical spider, not to mention more footage of villain Ulysses Klaw. War for Wakanda is set for August of this year.
Marvel’s Avengers is available now on the PlayStation and Xbox family of consoles, Google Stadia, and PC.
