An earlier report about the upcoming Wakanda campaign for Marvel's Avengers said that the new content would take players about 25 hours to complete. This report, presented by Entertainment Weekly, claimed that the 25 hours would be in addition to the content available in the base game.

Unfortunately, that seems to be a misinterpretation by the person who wrote the article. Square Enix clarified what was actually meant by this "25 hour" remark. They say that The War for Wakanda will bring the length of the total campaign for Marvel's Avengers up to more than 25 hours.

Square Enix came up just short of saying how long The War for Wakanda would actually take though. However, if you take the average playtimes for the base game plus existing add-on content from Howlongtobeat.com, you're looking at an expansion that should maybe run you about 7 or so hours.

In related news, Christopher Judge will be voice Black Panther in the Wakanda expansion. You may recall Judge for his excellent work voicing Kratos in 2018's God of War for the PlayStation 4. Speaking to EW, Judge says that he initially turned down the role but was pushed to take it by his family.

"I turned it down straight away," Judge tells EW over Zoom about when he was first approached about the voice role. "There's many Black Panthers, but I really didn't believe that anyone should ever do T'Challa again [after Boseman]. The actual talks proceeded and, basically, I wound up doing it because my mother and my children said if I didn't do it, they would disown me." A bellow of laughter in his recognizably resonant timbre erupts at that thought.

"To be quite honest, I was fearful of being compared to what Chadwick had so wonderfully done," he continues. "The only way I could really wrap my head around it was to not even attempt a voice match, to let my performance stand on its own. I put all that into it and hopefully people like it."
