Infinity War DLC Adds New Villains to LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

The cavalcade of movie tie-in DLC for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 continues, and it doesn’t get much bigger than Avengers: Infinity War.  Today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released the Avengers: Infinity War Character and Level Pack. It’s available to purchase separately ($2.99) or as part of the season pass ($14.99) on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch.

Since all of the Avengers are already in the main roster of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, the Infinity War DLC instead focuses on the villains. The DLC adds the mad titan himself, Thanos, along with this death squad called the Children of Thanos: Corvus Glaive, Cull Obsidian, Proxima Midnight, and Ebony Maw. Also added are the Hulkbuster 2.0 Iron Man armor and a teenage Groot. The total roster is well over 200 playable characters from the Marvel universe (though, sadly, no X-Men).

The new level lets players take control of Thanos as his army invades the Inhuman city of Attilan, which is straight out of the Infinity comic event from 2013.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 released last fall as a worthy sequel to the first game. It pits familiar (and not so familiar) Marvel heroes against a fun variety of villains as Kang the Conqueror squishes up various timelines, locations, and dimensions into the mega hub-world of Chronopolis. It features an original story not tied to any one Marvel film or comic.

The Infinity War DLC is the latest of a long line of DLC packs for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. It joins the likes of the Runaways, Black Panther, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which all add a new level and several new playable characters.

Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters Friday, April 27.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is rated E for Everyone. It’s available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch.
