Take a sip of the Heart-Shaped Herb because an Unreal Engine 5 Black Panther game looks like it would have Insomniac quaking in its Spider-Man-shaped boots.

In Marvel Comics, Black Panther is a big deal as its first black superhero, while Ryan Coogler's Black Panther in 2018 was similarly pioneering with Chadwick Boseman's T'Challa leading his own solo movie.

At the cinema right now, Coogler's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is at the top of the box office, but following Boseman's tragic passing in 2020, there's a new Wakandan behind the claws and cowl.

Alongside the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's iterations of Black Panther(s), there are reports of multiple Black Panther games in the works. So, what could a new-gen trip to Wakanda look like?

What Is The Unreal Engine 5 Black Panther Game?

While this is sadly just a concept trailer, it shows off what YouTuber TeaserPlay imagines an Unreal Engine 5 Black Panther game could look like. The channel is known for its new-gen concepts, but this is one of the best.

We see a character model for Black Panther running around the rooftops of Wakanda, leaping into action, and doing BP's signature roll. With dynamic lighting reflecting off the buildings and the suit, it shows the true potential of a Black Panther game.

From what we've seen of Wakanda in the MCU, it's a technologically advanced society. However, TeaserPlay's version looks like a much more futuristic take on the Black Panther's homeland. Either way, we'd love to claw away at our enemies

Open-world superhero games are everywhere these days, and with Insomniac Games setting the bar with Marvel's Spider-Man, we're also excited to see what the developer can do with Marvel's Wolverine. TeaserPlay has already shown what that title could look like

Is EA Working On A Black Panther Game?

So you like Black Panther games, eh? Well, have all the Black Panther games in the world. Let's dive into the reports that there are at least two currently in the works

Amy Hennig and Marc Bernardin and working on a WWII-period game that will team Black Panther with Captain America. Sounding like a superhero Call of Duty this could be a big one from the former Uncharted director.

Elsewhere, the fact EA is working on multiple Marvel games means we've heard a lot about another Black Panther project. Apparently, former Monolith Productions boss Kevin Stephens will helm a single-player and open-world game where you take on the challenges of becoming the next Black Panther.

Away from all of these, let's remember Marvel's Spider-Man included the Wakandan Embassy and sparked theories the studio could be working on its own Marvel Gaming Universe (MGU) of continuity. Well, anything has got to be better than Black Panther appearing in Marvel's Avengers
