As announced last month, the LEGO Marvel Collection launches today on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It includes three of the biggest LEGO games of the last few years: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 1 and 2, and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers. The Collection also includes all previously released DLC and Season Pass content for all three games.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was a launch title for the current gen of consoles when it released in the Fall of 2013. It’s still the best-selling LEGO video game of all time. With a huge roster including the Avengers, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four, they battle against the likes of Doctor Doom, Loki, and Galactus. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was the first to introduce a large, open world hub town to explore and hunt for unlockables, which has since become the standard for LEGO games, as well as dynamic split-screen co-op.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers released in 2016 as a more direct tie-in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It closely mirrors the stories and characters from the big-screen films such as Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The roster isn’t limited to MCU characters, however, including over 200 unlockable characters from the Marvel comics. The game also introduced team-up attacks between duo characters.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 came out in 2017. Like the first game it features an original story that ties in most of the Marvel universe, though sadly lacking the X-Men and Fantastic Four. The hub world is now bigger than ever thanks to Kang the Conqueror summoning different eras and regions together, such as Wakanda, Medieval England, Manhattan Noir, the Wold West, and Xandar. The sequel also supports up to four players in the new battle arena mode.
The LEGO Marvel Collection is out now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All three game are rated E10+.
