Fans of Marvel Comics and Lego are sure in for a treat as the new trailer for the sequel to Lego Marvel Superheroes was recently revealed. It looks like there are a lot of new things to get to in the trailer and the amount of content could be bigger than what fans had in the first game. Here’s everything we know so far about Lego Marvel Superheroes 2.
The release date for Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 is on Nov. 17 this year. The game will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 17. The game will also come to the Nintendo Switch and the release will be at an unspecified Holiday 2017 date. Oddly enough, there’s no 3DS version of the game unlike past titles.
Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 will introduce a hero that’s new to the series. Kang The Conqueror will take the helm of the game’s main villain and the setting of the game will be at Chronopolis. Kang The Conqueror created Chronopolis through bits and pieces of areas from the Marvel Universe which includes Sakaar from Thor: Ragnarok, ancient Egypt, and New York 2099. We’ve yet to know what worlds we will see in the game but looking at the roster, there may be a lot of areas to explore.
Like in the first game, it looks like the roster for Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 will be expansive. Some of the characters seen in the trailer are Captain America, Spider-Man 2099, Thor, Hakweye, Baby Groot (who turns into Groot), Rocket Racoon and many others more.
There are no X-Men characters seen in the trailer and it’s likely because the focus will be for characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Still, it’ll be pretty exciting to see how big the roster will be. It’s possible that the developers will outdo the character count in Lego Marvel’s Avengers which is over 200.
We’ve yet to see some gameplay footage from the game but fans shouldn’t expect anything new from the Lego games. What fans might be excited to see though is the game’s hub which in this case, is Chronopolis. Developer TT Games could make the open-world very vast like in previous titles. When it comes to visual upgrades, IGN notes that the game does look fantastic in both gameplay and cutscenes.
