The Story of Black Panther – War for Wakanda
The story of The War for Wakanda DLC stars King T’Challa, the Black Panther, current ruler, and devoted protector of Wakanda as he is blindsided by betrayal. As a result, T’Challa finds it difficult to entrust his role to anyone, even his sister, Shuri and confronts anyone who wishes Wakanda harm. When his arch foe, Klaw, threatens Wakanda’s safety, T’Challa must battle them in order to save his home and everything he holds dear.
Players will be able to explore the lush environment of Wakanda while experiencing the games story and other additional missions in the Avengers initiative. You’ll also be able to visit the Royal Place that overlooks Birnin Zana, otherwise known as “ The Golden City,” a new Outpost that contains Shuri’s laboratory, Zawavari’s chambers, and the Wakandan War Room.
