According to the announcement from Square Enix,” 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.” It’s clear the developers and publisher behind one of the biggest RPGs to use the Avengers IP are making a push to a player base desperate for rich content.
