Similar to LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes
You might be wondering what makes this game different from LEGO: Marvel Super Heroes. Well first thing to know is that this is the first LEGO game based on a super hero movie, and that this game includes real voice-tracks, taken from the original Avengers movie. It's comparibly very similar in the fact that there are over 150 characters upon the roster, which happens to not include the costume options. You'll have the ability to form a core team with the super heros of your choice.
One of the great features about LEGO: Marvel's Avengers is the emphasis on teamwork, and utilizing it within this new game. There will be combat combos between characters, while also adding multiple characteristics that pertain to the specific characters. An example would include the electric suit Black Widow possesses in the movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and also the firearms she uses in the original Avengers. Like with other LEGO games, this will offer local co-op where you can team up with a friend and perform said combos together.
It's a LEGO Game, Right?
As with most previous LEGO games, certain characters will have abilities in-game that are special to them. This was previously seen in LEGO: Harry Potter Years 1-4, LEGO: Harry Potter Years 5-7, LEGO: Lord of the Rings, and LEGO: The Hobbit. In LEGO: Lord of the Rings, Legolas had a special ability to shoot arrows into holds and swing upon them. This is also seen in LEGO: Marvel's Avengers, where Hawkeye can shoot arrows into holds for himself and his teammates to swing on.
There will also be an open-world game option as previously seen in LEGO: Marvel Super Heros, where side missions are plenty and characters have stand-by animations. You'll be able to adventure through the streets of New York, aiding to wipe up the Chitauri scum.
According to Brickipedia, that LEGO: Marvel's Avengers will be available for the: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PC, and Steam. They really spoiled us with these options, giving everyone a fair shot at playing this game on the console of their choice.
