Lego Marvel’s Avengers Footage

Now the dust has settled on last week’s EGX show more news around Lego Marvel’s Avengers and Lego Dimensions is surfacing.

Although Lego Marvel’s Avengers wasn’t on the big PlayStation or Xbox stands this year it was available to play on the Turtle Beach area. As you can see from the video below, attendees had the chance to play though the latest levels of the game available to the public.

Here we find the new team-up mechanic where two characters work together to add special attacks and abilities. Although the game’s final roster is not yet confirmed, this certainly hints at a wider cast in this year’s Lego Marvel game as well as a context for including some lesser known heroes.

The game is slated for release in 2016, leaving space this holiday season for Lego Dimensions. Interestingly there are no Marvel characters or levels in the new Lego Dimensions game, presumably as this would conflict too closely with Disney’s own Toys to Life game Disney Infinity.

Equally, it seems unlikely that we will see Star Wars Lego coming to Lego Dimensions as, again, this is a key driver to get players into the Disney Infinity ecosystem.

Looking ahead to 2016 and beyond, it seems to signal that we’ll get another big DC Comics Lego game from TT although time will tell whether this is the case. In the meantime there is still plenty of DC in Lego Dimensions
