We haven’t seen a whole lot of Lego Marvel’s Avengers up to this point, so it’s been unclear what the scope of the game would be. While we know what the standard Lego game formula consists of, branding this one as Avengers gives it the opportunity for a lot of ground to be covered. Apparently, TT Games is up to that heroic task, as the latest trailer released today indicates that Lego Marvel’s Avengers has been hiding Loki level tricks up its sleeve.
Lego Marvel’s Avengers appears to be heavily influenced by the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s heavily implied from the below trailer, and even more so by the locations our Avengers will be traveling to. There will apparently be 8 open world environments, they include: Washington, D.C., South Africa, Sokovia, S.H.I.E.L.D. Base Exterior, Malibu, Barton Farm, Asgard, and of course – New York City.
Here is TT Games’ promise about the New York we’ll be exploring:
“Lego Marvel Manhattan is bigger and better than ever before with brand new characters and gameplay mechanics to utilize while adventuring through the sprawling concrete jungle. Hyper jump off skyscrapers with Hulk, use Quicksilver to speed run over water or even play as giant characters like the menacing Fing Fang Foom who can grow to the size of buildings.”
The game promises to be a love letter to all things Avengers. Director on the title, Arthur Parsons, declared it as such, saying that “it’s a celebration of everything Avengers. Comic books, movies, cartoons. It’s everything you love about the Avengers in video games.” Parsons stated that there will be over two hundred (!) playable characters from the movies and comics as well.
Lego Marvel’s Avengers is landing on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS, Vita and PC on January 26th. Feast your eyes on some shawarma the marvelous new trailer below.
