LEGO Marvel Avengers is a spin-off of the successful LEGO Marvel Super Heroes focusing on the story of the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The game covers the events of the cinematic universe up to ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and covers content seen in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, ‘Avengers Assemble’, ‘Iron Man 3’, ‘Thor 2’, and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ with DLC packs available for other entries within the Marvel Cinematic Universe such as ‘Ant-Man’ and ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’.
Aside from the main story levels focusing upon the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the game has a number of open-world ‘hub worlds’, marking the return of ‘Superheroes’s’ Manhattan and the SHIELD Helicarrier – but also introducing new hub worlds in the form of areas such as Sokovia, Malibu, and Asgard. Throughout these hubs are collectable gold bricks and unlockable characters which can be used anywhere within the hub or within the levels in the game’s free-play mode – offering a large number of collectable content.
Voice clips taken directly from the film are mixed with new original recordings to provide a humorous take on the events of the major events of the Marvel Cinematic in LEGO’s trademark way.
