Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games, along with The LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment, have announced the LEGO Marvel Collection. This new compilation combines three Marvel LEGO video games in one package: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (2013), LEGO Marvel’s Avengers (2016), and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 (2017), as well as all their DLC.
LEGO Marvel Collection will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 12.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the bestselling LEGO game, and that’s really saying something. It released on both last gen and current gen consoles in 2013 and featured over 150 characters from all over the Marvel universe. The story centered on the world-destroying Galactus coming to Earth, prompting heroes and villains to team up and work together.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is also notable for including the full Marvel comics roster, including the X-Men and Fantastic Four. More recent Marvel games tend to focus squarely on the Avengers from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers was a more focused game that directly retold the events of the first two Avengers movies and many MCU films, starring the heroes and villains from those films.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is a middle-ground between the two others, offering an expanded roster but still neglecting many characters outside of Marvel’s cinematic cope (like the X-Men and Fantastic Four). The gameplay is top notch, featuring an exciting hub world that includes multiple worlds, eras, and dimensions thanks to an invasion by the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror. The lengthy campaign is written by comic scribe Kurt Busiek.
The sequel also received a constant stream of movie and TV tie-in DLC, including Black Panther, Runaways, and Avengers: Infinity War.
The LEGO Marvel Collection will launch on March 12 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All three games are rated E10+.
One of the most popular video games of 2018 is crossing over with the biggest film of the year (and, uh, most likely all time). Earlier today the official Fortnite twitter account teased a single image that announced the limited time mashup with Avengers: Infinity War. The event begins tomorrow, May 8.

Entertainment magazine and website Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive details from Epic Games. It’s called the Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup. The event will begin like any other Fortnite Battle Royale match, with 100 people dropping into an island in a free-for-all deathmatch. But this time, the Infinity Gauntlet is there.
The Infinity Gauntlet will be powered by all six Infinity Stones. The Gauntlet will be laying around for some lucky megalomaniac to pick up and wield. It will probably grant a wee bit of power to its wielder, and possibly unite everyone else against them. Epic is still playing coy with the details, despite the event starting tomorrow.
The crossover is the result of Avengers: Infinity War co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo being big Fortnite fans. They reached out to Epic Games Creative Director Donald Mustard and hashed out the basics for this limited time promotional event.
“Infinity War blew us away, and the Russos, Kevin Feige, and the whole team at Marvel have been incredible to work with,” Mustard told EW. “This kind of opportunity, where you have this mutual respect for someone’s work and you’re on the same page about doing something cool for fans, is rare and really exciting. We hope players love it.”
The Fortnite Infinity Gauntlet Limited Time Mashup begins Tuesday, May 8. Fortnite Battle Royale is available for free on Mobile, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
