In just a few days, the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther, will release in theaters. The new film has excited audiences enough ahead of its launch with the promise of an incredibly talented cast of leading characters and visuals heavily influenced by afro-futurism to earn projections of a record-breaking February opening weekend. Now to celebrate the King of Wakanda’s new film, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 has released a new pack of Black Panther DLC featuring playable characters that will be featured in the new film and a new level set in Wakanda.
The biggest addition is a new level set in Wakanda in which players will control Black Panther and his sister Shuri as they face Eric Killmonger’s forces. While Black Panther and Shuri were already available in the base game, these new versions of the characters more closely are modeled after the new movie versions of the characters. This is a similar case to the tie-in DLC for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor Ragnarok content released for the game so far.
As an added bonus, the new DLC pack also includes other playable characters from the new film, including Nakia, Ulysses Klaue, Okoye and Everett K. Ross. The trailer even shows Okoye riding an enhanced rhino that has appeared in a new Lego set, and supposedly the new movie as well. Hopefully, these will help ease the wait for those anticipating the release of the new film later this week. Wakanda forever! What do you guys think about this new Black Panther DLC?
