LEGO Marvel Collection Assembles Three Marvel LEGO Games

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

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+.

WB Games and TT Games have announced an official video game adaptation of the upcoming sequel, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame will launch on Feb. 26, 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch (physical Switch version on 3/26/19). The film is out Feb. 8, 2019.

While the game will be based on events from The LEGO Movie 2, it will feature characters and events from the original LEGO movie as well. Over 100 characters will be playable from both movies. Budding Master Builders will be able to rebuild Brickburg, changing the landscape and rebuilding roads and structures. Building special LEGO objects will unlock new areas and rewards.

“Packed with fan-favorite and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore,” said Arthur Parsons, TT Games Studios.

The LEGO Movie 2 (not yet rated) reunites the cast of Chris Pratt (Emmet), Elizabeth Banks (Lucy/Wyldstyle), and Will Arnett (scene-stealing LEGO Batman). It takes place five years after they saved their world from Lord Business (Will Ferrell). Now LEGO Duplo have invaded Brickburg. The heroes will have to travel to far off worlds to save their own.

The video game sequel has not yet been rated by the ESRB. The original was rated E10+ for Cartoon Violence and Comic Mischief. The original The LEGO Movie was rated PG.

First LEGO Overwatch Figure is Omnic Bastion

Posted by | News | No Comments

Earlier this year Activision Blizzard announced a partnership with LEGO to produce special Overwatch LEGO figures. The first of these sets is Omnic Bastion, and it’s available to order now exclusively on the Blizzard Gear store. It will also be available at BlizzCon, which takes place November 2-3 in Anaheim, California.

LEGO Overwatch Omnic Bastion is a large, buildable Bastion figure containing 182 pieces. Curiously, Bastion is featured in his orange Omnic Crisis skin rather than his default gray.

Once built the figure stands five inches tall, including the base. Bastion can swivel his waist and move his arms. Sadly, the LEGO Bastion doesn’t transform into a turret.

Bastion’s flying sidekick Ganymede is also included as a small buildable figure. The set has a recommended age of 10+ and costs $25.00.

A full launch of LEGO Overwatch figures is coming soon.

Overwatch is currently in the middle of its Halloween Terror 2018 event. The seasonal event features the return of Junkenstein’s Revenge and adds two new heroes to the fan-favorite mode – Brigitte and Tracer.

New loot boxes add new skins, emotes and highlight intros. The six new legendary skins are Banshee Moira, Bride Sombra, Enchanted Armor Pharah, Jack-O’-Lantern Wrecking Ball, Slasher: 76 Soldier 76, and Swamp Monster Doomfist. You can also find previous years’ Halloween loot and purchase them at a discount.

The Halloween event ends October 31.
