I know I already wrote a post about this game, but it's much closer to the release date and new info is available.
Like for example, Deadpool is very important in the game because he operates the in-game stores and narrates the bonus levels (this game has bonus levels, which is something new. Because other LEGO games that have bonus levels are cool and all, but they all have the exact same objective: collect one million studs. NOW the bonus levels involve super hero style stuff, like rescue civilians or something similar.). In fact he also has "Deadpool Bricks", shiny collectable red bricks that, when purchased, will allow you to use cheat codes.
The game has all of New York as a hub world, including Marvel exclusive buildings, including but not limited to; Stark Tower, Oscorp Tower, Baxter Building, and more. But the hub world is divided into two sections, the actual city and the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier (the stores are on board the Helicarrier).
And I have seen gameplay of Thor!!!!! And he's even more awesome than I hoped!!!!! He can super-charge his hammer (named Mjolnir) with lightning, electrocuting any enemy that touches him. And he can discharge that same electricity into machinery, super-charging the machine in question in the process, and in turn, solving a puzzle.
But wait, it gets even better! Venom is in the game!!! Venom is Spider-Man's deadliest foe, because Venom has all of Spider-Man's powers, plus his own symbiote powers. Including Super Sense, which is an upgraded version of Spider Sense, only difference is that it is better. And (in most versions) the ability to generate spiky tendrils from his body.
And Wolverine is in the game, too!!!!!!! Wolverine is a super hero that is a mutant. His powers include regeneration, long life, sharp claws that come out of the back of his hands, and the ability to climb walls. Here is his bio.
Wolverine A.K.A. James Howlett was born in 1899. He originally had a pair of claws made of bone, but Wolverine managed to upgrade his abilities during an experiment that covered every bone in his body in adamantium, one of the strongest metals in Marvel history. And thus, his bone claws are now made of metal. But before this, he fought in World War Two, and in most versions, along-side Captain America.
Unfortunately, the experiment that upgraded him also gave him amnesia. He gave himself the name of Logan and chose Wolverine as a hero title. Later down the road he wound up being a member of one of, perhaps the, largest superhero team: The X-Men. Members include Cyclops, Phoenix, Dr. Jean Grey, Beast, Charles Xavier, Ice-Man, the Spike, Night-Crawler, and more.
But in this game, Wolverine, Thor, Captain America, and the Human Torch are sent to Asgard (Thor's homeworld) to stop Loki (Thor's evil brother). But by the time they get there, BOOM!!!!! Asgard is frozen, ice everywhere, snow everywhere, and Frost Giants everywhere!!!!!!!
And Iron Man's armors have been revealed!!!! Here is a list of Armor in the game, along with what the armor can do in the game. NOTE: All numbers are in Roman form, just like in the Iron Man franchise. If you do not know what each letter(s) represents, the numbers are: 1, 6, 7, 17, and 42.
- Mark I - the prototype. Tony Stark built this one when he was kidnapped by terrorists, and used this armor to escape. It's completely grey and only has pulse lasers and flight.
- Mark VI - This is the more famous armor, mostly red with gold on the faceplate and various armor segments. This one has pulse lasers, flight, uni-beam, missiles, a Ground Slam attack, and the ability to hack into computers. This armor also has a compact form, which makes it look like a red and gold suitcase.
- Mark VII - A faster version of the Mark VI. Same gadgets, only now it has a Laser Cutter. This one also has a pod form and, when activated, will home in on Tony Stark, align it's sensors with the silver bracelets that Tony wears, and attach itself to Tony Stark's entire body, starting with the hands.
- Mark XVII - Also known as the "Heart-breaker". This armor is crazy awesome. It is currently unknown what this armor can do in the game, but it might have the ability to do everything that the other armors can do.
- Mark XLII - My personal favorite. It's the newest model yet, and it is perfect for every situation. It has everything the others have, plus the ability to melt things because it has a Melter. It's mostly gold with a little bit of red here and there. Tony can summon it by inserting a telepathic linking device into his left arm and simply thinking about wearing the armor and the armor will appear, piece by piece, and attach itself to Tony Stark..
And here is a cool thing about the game. When you are on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, you can access the rest of the hub world by SKY-DIVING off of the Helicarrier. By the way, have you ever wondered what S.H.I.E.L.D. stands for? Well, if you have, it stands for Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistics Directorate. Although, it used to stand for Supreme Headquarters International Espionage Law-Enforcement Division. Either way, S.H.I.E.L.D. is still a band of secret agents. In fact S.H.I.E.L.D. has at least on thing to do with each and every Marvel Superhero.
It is apparent that the Sandman and the Abomination (foes of Spider-Man and the Hulk, respectively) are the very first bosses in the game. However, that may be because they are fought in the first REVEALED level, but it is possible It is not the first level STORY-WISE. Considering the fact that in cutscenes when a character first appears there name appears on screen, but in the level, Iron Man's name didn't appear, indicating he appears earlier than that level.
It is obvious that Galactus is the final boss, after all, he is one of, if not the most powerful Marvel villain. In fact the word "villain" doesn't even BEGIN to describe the villainous Galactus. In fact he is worthy of the title "SUPER-villain". Or even better, he is worthy of the only thing more villainous than a super-villain: A "MEGA-villain". But I do not know how the boss fight goes.
But I do know that although Spider-Man helped during the boss fight against Sandman, He is not actually part of...well.....any hero team. He's a solo act. In fact, Nick Fury once asked Spider-Man if he would like to become an Avenger. But Spider-Man refuses by saying "Yeah, like I have time for that! I have a trigonometry exam tomorrow, my aunt needs me to pick up a dozen eggs, and I'm drowning in angst!".
The last bit of info that is new is that like all LEGO games, you can create custom characters. However, This character creator is unique, because you can now assign super powers to each custom character. Such as flight, or super strength, or regeneration.
