I’ve been enjoying a nice behind-the-scenes look at LEGO Marvel’s Avengers thanks to updates from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games. Personally, I’ve loved Marvel LEGO and it’s video game evolution, but this latest one is really shaping up to be something special. In their recent update to the faithful, the creative team pulled back the curtain once again explaining that they are significantly expanding the LEGO Marvel Universe with an army of playable characters we’ve never seen before!
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers includes content well beyond the Avengers movies, spanning not only six different films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the game also features extensive classic comic content seen in Marvel comics. With more than 100 new characters that have never appeared in a LEGO game before, the latest fan favorites to be revealed include familiar Avengers characters from the Marvel Comic Universe, including Fin Fang Foom, Devil Dinosaur & Moon-Boy, Korvac, Skaar, Wendigo, Crimson Dynamo, Mantis, Peggy Carter and the Iron Man’s Mark 38 armor—also known as “Igor.”
Take a look at the latest reveals!
In the upcoming game (hitting US store shelves on January 26th, 2016), you will see characters and playable content from Marvel films including The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The First Avenger, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That said, with 100 new characters that have never been seen before in LEGO games, this one looks like must-play comic goodness to me.
