In an announcement today (September 28) on the Xbox Blog, it was revealed that Marvel’s Avengers will be coming to Game Pass at the end of this month (September 30). The game has recently celebrated both its first anniversary and launched a massive expansion – Black Panther: War For Wakanda.
Black Panther: War For Wakanda is the biggest expansion in Marvel’s Avengers history, including a new hero, two new villains, a new area, enemies, and missions. The expansion will be free to Xbox Game Pass players, along with the Avengers Initiative – an online multiplayer world.
