Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther, War Machine First Look & New Missions Unearthed via Datamining

marvel's avengers black panther

Back in September, Crystal Dynamics announced that they have altered what they were showing in a Marvel’s Avengers War Table devstream due to the death of Chadwick Boseman, more popularly known as the real-life Black Panther of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). This meant that whatever Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther showing the studio planned, they had to push back a bit out of respect for the actor.

In the game’s latest patch, a bunch of new info have been datamined, and it includes our first look at Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther, War Machine, a bunch of new missions, items and more! These were all obtained from a video featuring a list of datamined info from the latest patch. Marvel’s Avengers fan “Miller” shared the info over on Twitter with detailed descriptions, images and more. Do note that none of these have been confirmed by Crystal Dynamics, and as such should be taken with a grain of salt, and some could be using placeholder names and whatnot.

As for the leaked missions, items and whatnot, we’ve compiled the long chain of tweets into text form below.

(This concludes the ghost-related objectives in this section of the text. I am increasingly convinced the entire “ghost” subplot, as it appears here, was scrapped, and that the entire Jemma character present in audio may be a remnant of that. But it’s impossible to say for sure.)

(More missions and objectives around Tarantulas, none of which particularly stand out to me.)

There’s no mention of when we’ll see any of the new content listed here, but the fact that they’re part of the data rollout this October bodes well that we’ll see them soon.

Again, worth pointing out that these are in no way confirmed by Activision, and as such, should be taken with a grain of salt. Nonethless, don’t be surprised to see this version of Black Panther and War Machine in the game soon.
