Warner Bros Games and LEGO have united once more to create an all-new, epic adventure and sequel to the smash hit, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes with their new game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. The game follows an original branching storyline, co-written by comic book veteran Kurt Busiek, that follows on directly where LEGO Marvel Super Heroes left off. Players are transported into 18 different Marvel locations that have been “ripped from time and space into the incredible open hub world of Chronopolis”.
You can see a bit of the gameplay in the official trailer:
The game features 18 locations, all of which come together to form one huge Chronopolis Open Hub World, including Ancient Egypt, the Old West, Sakaar, New York City in 2099, Xandar, and more.
There is a new time manipulation mechanic to allow specific characters to move time forwards or backwards to change the state of in-game elements, help players progress through a level, or allow secrets to be discovered.
A diverse roster of characters from across the Marvel Universe appear in the game, including Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Doctor Strange, Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Ms. Marvel, Ant-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Kang the Conqueror and more. (Fantastic 4 and X-Men characters are notable omissions from the list, likely due to licensing issues with Fox.)
There is also a four-player competitive and cooperative super hero battle mode for friends and family to play together or against each other in a series of themed challenges and battle arenas. This is teased in the trailer with the Grandmaster observing a clash between Moon Knight, Fin Fang Foom, Red Hulk, and Doctor Strange.

The Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One “Deluxe” editions are available to pre-order and come with a Season Pass, early access to the classic Guardians of the Galaxy character pack, exclusive poster and an exclusive giant-man (Hank Pym) LEGO minifigure.
