At the minute, there are no real development details available for Lego Marvel Avengers. But speaking about the upcoming Lego games at a franchise wide level, David Haddad, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has said “The LEGO video game franchise remains a cornerstone of our business, consistently delivering fun, engaging gameplay and remarkable humour both kids and adults love,”.

While official story details for Lego Marvel’s Avengers haven’t been revealed just yet, it’s expected to follow the events of both Marvels The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The Avengers see Loki, adopted brother of the demi God Thor, seizing a mystical artefact that lets him control humans and lead an invading army against earth.
A band of heroes from Earth and Asgard work in an effort to defeat Loki who is eventually imprisoned by Thor and returned to Asgard to await his trial. This story concludes in the Marvel movie, Thor: The Dark World. Avengers: Age of Ultron is yet to be released.
Lego Marvel’s Avengers is likely to follow the exact same format as previous Lego games in the franchise. Players will take control of a team that consists of Lego versions of real world characters. Each of these Lego characters has a personal skill that differs from class to class.
Some characters have skills and abilities that will let them reach areas inaccessible to others. Other characters like the Hulk for example are much stronger than others and are better at destroying objects in the game world. Other character classes are typically more geared towards solving puzzles and as such are gifted with certain skills that aid them in this regard.
Gameplay puts a focus on third person perspective light action and adventure platforming mixed with puzzle elements. Players collect Lego studs as a form of currency that can be used to unlock other characters, costumes and even special cheat codes.
