Square Enix shares 2021 content roadmap for Marvel's Avengers; Black Panther: War for Wakanda content announced
As previously announced, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions for Marvel's Avengers launched on March 18, alongside the Operation Hawkeye post-launch story update.
During this weeks' Square Enix Presents presentation, Crystal Dynamics showed off new gameplay as well as a 2021 roadmap for upcoming content to Marvel's Avengers. The most splashy update is the upcoming Black Panther: War for Wakanda, which adds Black Panther as a playable character and will be the largest content update to the game since launch.
The 2021 roadmap, Black Panther reveal trailer, and announcement from Square Enix can be found below, alongside many new screenshots.
During Square Enix Presents on March 18, we showed a roadmap of what’s to come in the next few months for Marvel’s Avengers along with the official reveal of the King of Wakanda! Our community has been asking for this for quite some time, and now, after some lessons learned and overall improvements and stability, we’re excited to share more information. Although we’re presenting this roadmap now, it does not include everything we’re currently working on, but does provide a good idea of what’s to come!
Our focus moving forward is to deliver new content that is compelling to play and replay again while offering better rewards. We are expanding upon what the Avengers Initiative currently has to offer to provide more choices for players when they hop in game and have completed all the Operations. We do want to mention that this roadmap could potentially change depending on the ever-changing world of game development, but we also feel confident about what we have presented here and hope it also excites you.
As we get closer to each element of the roadmap, we’ll provide more detailed information, but for now, we’d like to touch briefly on each section:
During this event, Tachyon Rift Missions will appear more often, and will be scaled for Power Levels 1-100 so more players can experience them and have event-specific rewards.
Since launch, we have heard players ask if more than one of the same Hero can be present in a Strike Team. We’re happy to announce that during the Temporal Assault event, you'll be able to play multiple of the same hero in the Avengers Initiative. If you’ve always wanted to see what a team of four Hulks is like, this event is for you!
Red Room Takeover
Enter the Red Room Takeover with new unique HARM Room content and outfits.
It’s Monica’s time to shine in her very own Villain Sector as the Scientist Supreme, featuring a brand new battle where players must confront the unchecked power of the Cosmic Cube.
A new Patrol Mode mission type that allows you to explore the largest War Zone area to date, complete quests, and earn rewards without the constraints of a mission. You can explore these areas as long as you want and complete Assignments at your leisure!
War for Wakanda
Black Panther is coming in 2021 along with more Villains like Klaw, a new enemy Faction, the Wakandan Jungle Biome, a new Outpost, a Power Level cap increase, and much more. This will be the biggest content drop since launch. We can’t wait to show you everything that is coming with Wakanda.
We’re always working on tuning combat, gear, and matchmaking as you’ll continue to see in our upcoming patches, including the ability to use the directional pad in menus.
Additional Content and Features
Omega-Level Threat missions have been the most significant development challenge since we launched the game. The feature works, we have our devs and QA teams playing every day, but we’re still tracking down bugs that we need to resolve. We want to make sure we’re confident that the quality is rock solid.
We’re also working on post-level-50 progression, outfits inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and multiplayer Megahives. We can’t wait to show you more!
Our team is committed to improving Marvel’s Avengers, beginning with these upcoming additions to the game. This is only the start of our future plans and, as stated previously, not everything we’re working on. We’ll be sharing more details over these coming months, so keep an eye out on our official channels. We hope this roadmap offers you a bit more knowledge into what we’re focusing on as we continue development day in and day out in order to make Marvel’s Avengers the game we know it can be. Thank you for your continued patience, your support, your feedback, and your unbridled passion!
