I’ll give it to Disney and their work with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They’ve made characters such as Iron Man and Black Panther who were once major parts of the Marvel comics universe but not the most popular outside of it, into massively popular characters that kids fight to play as on playground.
With the success of these characters in the MCU, Marvel Games now want their games to be top tier in the world of gaming. Titles such as the Marvel’s Spider-Man series and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy have lead the way. You know everyone involved with Marvel’s Wolverine is expecting the game to take the gaming world bt storm.
Now it appears that Black Panther is going to get his own massive game from publisher EA and a new Seattle-based studio led by Ex-Monolith Productions Head Kevin Stephens (Shadow of Mordor, Shadow of War) and other industry veterans, according to Jeff Grubb.
He also claims the game will be an open-world, single-player game as EA continues to establish that they don’t hate SP games and can make premium SP titles at that. Jeff says that you will play as the NEW Black Panther after the previous one dies at the beginning of the game. Jeff did not clarify if you play as T’Challa OR if T’Challa is the dead BP, as you then create your own character to play as.
Jeff Grub: It is a single-player game, it is in very early development, and the game starts with Black Panther being dead.
The player is going to take on the challenges of becoming the new Black Panther and that seems to be the set-up for the game.
‘Project Rainier’ is reportedly early in-development so it might be awhile before we hear any official news on the game. We will keep you updated, Marvel fans!
