Arthur Parsons, Game Director over at TT Games, had some great news today for PlayStation owners looking to pickup Lego Marvel’s Avengers in a couple weeks. It turns out the team has some free DLC in the pipeline exclusively for Sony’s consoles, and they aren’t cheap throw-ins either.
The Lego Marvel’s Avengers DLC will be focusing on the latest to release and soonest to come titles from the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War. From Civil War PlayStation owners will be getting a character pack at launch that features 9 characters from the upcoming film: Captain America, Iron Mark (Mark 46 armor), Black Panther, Winter Soldier, Falcon, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Crossbones and Agent 13.
The Ant-Man side of things are a bit more meaty, but won’t be available until spring. We’ll be getting “an awesome level based on a section of the film” and 11 new characters: Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Ant-Man (Hank Pym), Ant-Thony (Flying Ant), Cassie Lang, Darren Cross, Scott Lang, Hank Pym, Hope Van Dyne, Luis, The Wasp (Janet Van Dyne) and Yellowjacket. The coolest of the above is obviously Ant-Thony the Ant, whom TT Games promise you’ll be able to fly around the game’s areas with.
The PlayStation blog breaking the news today also released a quick and fun clip that shows off what happens when Thor teams with Hawkeye within Lego Marvel’s Avengers. Enjoy!
