Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, the follow-up to the Marvel Comics mashup adventure from 2013, will be released Nov. 14 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today.
The game is also in development for Nintendo Switch. However, that version does not have a concrete release date; Warner Bros. said it will be available “this holiday.”
Like the original Lego Marvel Super Heroes, the sequel will draw upon a wide range of Marvel history, bringing in heroes and villains “from different eras and realities,” Warner Bros. said in a news release. Characters will do battle with the time-traveling foe Kang the Conqueror, and they’ll be able to manipulate time themselves; there’s a reason the game’s hub world is called Chronopolis.
Settings for the action in Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 include real-life locales such as New York City in the year 2099, ancient Egypt and the Old West, along with places from Marvel Comics lore like Sakaar, the home of the Planet Hulk storyline. Players will be able to step into the shoes of characters such as Spider-Man 2099, Cowboy Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, the Green Goblin and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 will also offer a new mode that will allow four players to battle with superheroes either competitively or cooperatively.
Speaking of the Guardians, you can check out the brief teaser trailer for Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, which features none other than Baby Groot, below. The full trailer will go live May 23.
