EA just announced a new Black Panther game. It will be developed by one of the new studios Cliffhanger Games. Here’s what we know about EA’s Black Panther.
WITH spiderman 2 which will arrive later this year and Fortnite making another collaboration, superhero fans have many options in the world of video games. But guess! They are even more spoiled!
- If you like superheroes, consider watching The Boys on Amazon Basic (which pretends to undermine the entire genre, but ends up falling back on the same tropes).
New Black Panther game announced to be developed by new studio
EA has opened a new studio in Seattle called Cliffhanger Games and the studio’s first challenge is to create a “single player adventure game based on Marvel’s Black Panther”.“As explained in advertising:
Cliffhanger has already teamed up top talent with the leaders of the critically acclaimed and innovative Middle-earth adventure game: Shadow of Mordor, as well as veterans of major franchises including Halo Infinite, God of War, Call of Duty and more.
“We aim to give fans an authentic and definitive Black Panther experience, giving them more leeway and control over their storytelling than they’ve ever experienced in a story-driven video game. Wakanda is a rich sandbox of superheroes, and our mission is to develop an epic world for players who love Black Panther and want to explore the world of Wakanda as much as we do.”
So it’s the developers behind Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (good sign) who are creating a “story” superhero game that gives players “control over their storytelling”. We are cautiously optimistic about this game, although if this is only the first announcement, then we will have to wait until 2025 for its release. EA has yet to give a specific release date.
So far, the only thing EA has shown is a 10-second preview:
