Lego Marvel's AvengersÂ is aÂ Lego-themedÂ action-adventureÂ video gameÂ developed byÂ Traveller's TalesÂ and published byÂ Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, for theÂ PlayStation 4,Â PlayStation 3,Â PlayStation Vita,Â Nintendo 3DS,Â Wii U,Â Xbox One,Â Xbox 360,Â MacintoshÂ andÂ Microsoft Windows. It is the spin-off toÂ Lego Marvel Super HeroesÂ and the second installment of theÂ Lego Marvelfranchise.It follows the plots of bothÂ The AvengersÂ andÂ Avengers: Age of UltronÂ as well asÂ Captain America: The First Avenger,Â Iron Man 3,Â Thor: The Dark World, andÂ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The game features characters from theÂ Marvel Cinematic UniverseÂ as well as characters from comic books. Characters includeÂ Iron Man,Â Captain America,Â Hulk,Â Black Widow,Â Hawkeye,Â Scarlet Witch,Â Quicksilver,Â Thor,Â Ultron,Â Loki,Â Winter Soldier,Â Falcon,Â VisionÂ andÂ War MachineÂ and some lesser known characters such asÂ Devil DinosaurÂ andÂ Fin Fang Foom.It includes the characters of the Avengers team along with many others.The game was released on 26 January 2016. Gameplay is similar to LEGO's long running series of franchise video games, with a focus on puzzle solving interspersed with action. Players often have to solve puzzles spread across the game environment, such as figuring out how to move a particular truck that is blocking their progression. As always, the game has its own unique quirks, for instance taking advantage of its large character library in areas that require two specific characters to team up in order to proceed. Boss battles also take the form of puzzles, often requiring careful timing. While action and fighting are spread liberally throughout the game, it is kept very child-friendly as per LEGO custom. The game featuresÂ New York CityÂ as the main large open-world hub, but also, for the first time, includes a dozen other movie significant areas players can travel to, includingÂ Asgard,Â Malibu,Â South Africa, TheÂ Helicarrier, the Bartons' farm,Â Washington DCÂ and Sokovia.These hubs also feature heavy playability, with hundreds of side quests and bonus levels such as rescuing citizens in trouble, races, and more. The main story actually takes up a fairly small fraction of the game's total "completion". Whilst the game's story is predominantly focused on the two Avengers films there are single levels based onÂ Captain America: The First Avenger,Â Iron Man 3,Â Thor: The Dark WorldÂ andÂ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The game features over two hundred playable characters, including some characters (but not all) returning from the previous game. The heroes are drawn not just from theÂ Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the comics as well. Director Arthur Parsons stated "It's a celebration of everything Avengers. Comic books, movies, cartoons. It's everything you love about the Avengers in video games."Confirmed additional characters includeÂ Kamala KhanÂ as Ms. Marvel,Â Sam Wilson's Captain America appearance,Â America Chavez,Â Jane Foster'sÂ ThorÂ form,Â WiccanÂ andÂ Speed.Every two characters have their own unique team-up abilities. There are even separate ones for what character is triggering the attack, meaning nearly 800 team-up moves. LEGO Marvelâ€™s Avengers: Avengers Assemble!
