A new wonder The video game was announced at Disney’s D23 Expo, which features both Black Panther and Captain America.
The game will be led by Skydance New Media, helmed by award-winning screenwriter and director Amy Hennig, responsible for video games like the first three entries in the Unexplored franchise, James 3and two entries in the Kain’s Legacy franchise. The trailer for the game, whose title is unknown at the time of writing, was revealed during the Disney and Marvel games showcase at D23 Expo, hosted by Kinda Funny’s Blessing Adeoye Jr.
Not much is known about the video game other than what was shown in the trailer, which you can watch above, with the captions “King, Captain, Soldier, Spy” and “Four Heroes.” Two worlds. A war. In this image, we see Black Panther and Captain America, joined by a WWII soldier and one of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, standing in front of Hydra-occupied Paris and Wakanda, with the Hydra logo threateningly imposed on the back -plan.
However, Amy Hennig and writer Marc Bernardin took the stage afterwards to explain a bit about the game, which will be a narrative adventure. The Marvel game will let you control Steve Rogers as a young Captain America, Azzuri, the grandfather of T’Challa and Black Panther from World War II, Gabriel Jones, one of the howling commandos, and Nanali, the leader of the Wakandan spy ring. The game will most likely see the four face off against the forces of Hydra and the Red Skull. It’s also likely that Steve Rogers will fight Black Panther at some point, as his shield, as shown in the trailer, bears claw marks.
Since the trailer didn’t show any gameplay and was just a cutscene, we can’t tell you what the game will look like, but the concept hasn’t been done before in video game form. We’ve had Captain America games in the past, like the movie tie-in game for Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: Super Soldierbut it would be the first time we’ve had a Black Panther game where he’s one of the main characters.
It would be interesting to see if Captain America and Black Panther’s move sets resemble their move sets in Crystal Dynamics’ live service game, Marvel’s Avengerswho had an infamously rocky journey but released a Wakanda expansion with Black Panther in 2021. The two also have similar movement defined in-game, with both being brawlers preferring to get up close, although Captain’s America’s shield is great for some ranged attacks.
The release date of the game, as well as its title and the platforms it will arrive on are currently unknown. But given that no release date has been announced, we can imagine that the game will not be released until at least 2024.
