The steady roll-out of DLC for recently released LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 has begun. The first major release, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, adds characters and a level inspired by the movie. It’s available now separately for $2.99 or as part of the $14.99 Season Pass.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds a new level based on the opening scene from the movie, where the Guardians face off against a giant tentacled alien monster called the Abilisk.
Since the Guardians themselves are already included (and heavily featured) in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, the DLC mostly adds a few variant outfits as well as minor characters from the film, such as Kraglin and Stakar (the latter being Sylvester Stallone’s cameo).
The upcoming DLC for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 will tie in to all the Marvel movies releasing over the next year, including Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp. It will also include some TV tie-ins with Runaways and Cloak and Dagger. Most of them will add a new level as well as new characters. Check out the full spread of DLC below.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam). It’s rated E for Everyone.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Jam City have announced a new upcoming Harry Potter game for mobile devices. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will allow players to create their own student wizard and progress through the years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It will arrive on mobile devices, including the Apple App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore in 2018.
“Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a mobile gaming experience inspired by J.K. Rowling’s spell-binding lore, and it will be an exciting, fun way for fans to experience the Wizarding World,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “It is great to work with Jam City on the game, as the company has a proven track record of bringing rich, beloved worlds to players of mobile entertainment.”
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be released under Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s official Harry Potter label, Portkey Games. The game is being developed by Jam City, an LA based mobile developer who have developed numerous successful mobile titles such as Cookie Jam and Marvel Avengers Academy.
“What an honor it is for Jam City to develop a mobile game for one of the largest and most iconic brands in history,” said Chris DeWolfe, co-founder and CEO of Jam City. “As Harry Potter fanatics ourselves, we have great respect for the millions of people throughout the world who have followed the Harry Potter stories for more than 20 years. This game is a labor of love for our developers and artists, who are dedicated to creating the most magical entertainment and game play experience for everyone who adores J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.”
Portkey Games is launching another Harry Potter mobile title next year in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. It’s an AR game being developed by the makers of Pokémon GO. We should be getting more information about both games next year.
Available On: PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
The exact moment I fell in love with Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 happened in the very first level. I control the Guardians of the Galaxy defending Xandar from the villainous Kang the Conqueror. Activating Star-Lord’s special ability prompts him to slip on some headphones and begin rocking out to the excellent 60s and 70s soundtracks from the the two films, licensed music and everything! All the figures around you begin to dance, because how could you not?
The Lego games have remained family-friendly, co-op games over the last decade but vary wildly in quality from buggy, awkward messes to peak couch co-op. The first Lego Marvel Super Heroes was one of the best Lego games to date. The sequel skirts close to being my new favorite Lego game, with amazingly varied level designs and a wealth of fun content – provided you only care about the MCU version of Marvel.
