Crystal Dynamics built Marvel’s Avengers Black Panther DLC around exploration, with plenty of rewards and nods to the source material.
The Avengers will explore a dense, lush jungle and its peculiar hybrid of seemingly untouched nature and ancient Wakandan technology.
Crystal Dynamics said there are secrets behind every corner, and the region is made up of entirely new assets.
In keeping with Wakanda’s independence and lack of outside interference, the team built the new area without recycling art or objects.
Avengers Wakanda DLC Goes Big on Exploration and Puzzles, Crystal Dynamics Says
“There are both ancient Wakandan and contemporary object styles,” Crystal Dynamics said in the blog post.
“It has been a huge undertaking for the art teams to pull off Wakanda; both because there is such an abundance of unique art that needed to be built, but also because all Wakandan art objects had to be crafted from scratch since it is such a unique style.”
Wakanda is also the most vertical of any region yet featured in the game and advised caution when exploring, lest the Avengers meet an untimely demise in one of Wakanda’s many deep chasms.
