Once Marvel’s Avengers has been updated to the latest version, go ahead and start the game.

From here you’ll want to navigate over to the War Table in-game and find the region of Wakanda on the world globe. Select ‘View Region’ and then select the Black Panther mission symbol to begin the first campaign mission called ‘The Way It Began…’.

You’ll then be taken to cutscene before being able to play as King T’Challa himself!
