Marvel's Avengers War for Wakanda expansion launches in August

During today's Square Enix Presents Summer Showcase, the publisher revealed that the War for Wakanda expansion for Marvel's Avengers will release in August.

A new cinematic trailer for the War for Wakanda event can be found below, alongside a description from Square Enix. An upcoming Cosmic Cube event, as shown in the roadmap, will also begin later in June

War for Wakanda

Be prepared to defend Wakanda in August 2021! Ulysses Klaue has made his way to Wakanda, intent on stealing Vibranium for his own selfish needs. Black Panther brings the Avengers and his fellow Wakandans together to defend his home from the incoming threat.

In the cinematic trailer we unveiled, you not only get a small glimpse of what Black Panther looks like without his mask, but also get to meet a few iconic Wakandans: the Dora Milaje, Black Panther’s royal bodyguards, including Okoye, and Shuri, T’Challa’s younger sister, who you see in the throne room. There are even more characters inspired directly by the comics who play important roles in the narrative that we can’t wait for you to meet.

As we get closer to releasing War for Wakanda, we’ll be publishing blogs, showcasing outfits, hosting dev streams and AMAs, and more! Keep an eye out on our social channels for more information.

Cosmic Cube

Per our roadmap, the Cosmic Cube arrives later this month and includes the new Beating the Odds Villain Sector and the Cosmic Threat Event.

In Beating the Odds, you’ll track down Monica’s secret weapon by following trails of Cosmic energy. At the end of the trail, you fight your way through the facility and reach the final chamber to find a giant, mysterious cube. Finally, you’ll face off against Monica, the Scientist Supreme, who is strengthened by the immense power of the true form of Project Omega: the Cosmic Cube. The fight against Monica is unlike any we’ve created before, and she has several dangerous tricks hiding up her sleeve. It takes place in a mesmerizing arena full of twisting colors that we know will be popular with our Photo Mode community.

Beating the Odds will be available on the War Table in the Snowy Tundra on June 22nd and can be played with any Hero with Power Level 35+.
