LEGO Marvel’s Avengers – Everything We Found Out

After a stellar interview panel and full showing, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers is looking to be one of the biggest LEGO games yet! Here’s the cliffsnotes version of what we found out:

-New Characters! Including Fing Fang Foom, Moon Boy, Devil Dinosaur, Agent Peggy Carter, Agent Sitwell, Hulkling, Egg Head, Lady Sith, Iron Monger, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage!

-There will be over 200 playable characters.

-Bigger Open World! The main crutch of the game will occur in Manhattan, but other locations include Askar, Washington D.C., Malibu, Hawkeye’s Farm, South Africa, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Base (Pre-Winter Soldier). They noted that there will be about eight different areas.

-Peggy Quests will allow players to go back to the 1940’s, allowing Manhattan to be transformed into 1940’s Manhattan (different cars, different color scheme, etc.)

-The opening scene of the game will be identical to the Avenger’s Age of Ultron movie (with some comical whips to boost)

-There will be several post-credit teasers for the game – some will be parodies and some are “kinda secret”

-There will be various classic comic covers reimagined in LEGO form as unlockables

-The Red Bricks in each level will be housed with The Collector. You must complete a small task in order to achieve it once you find him. The Collector will also be an unlockable character.

-Gold Brick count will be about 250

-There were several tweaks and improvements to playing as various characters. IE: Speedsters have improved playability, improved flight, etc.

-Co-op Play for PS4 can have two players play together and both earn the trophies

-Stan Lee’s cameos will be throughout the game, even during key Avenger’s moments.

My Opinion:
What amazingly fun announcements! It was great meeting the behind-the-scenes creators of the game and hear them speak so passionately about their craft. I was kinda nonchalant about this game…until today. Now I cannot to see what the other announcements will be in the future!
