Avengers: Infinity War DLC lets you play as Thanos in Lego Marvel

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 add-on brings on the bad guys

In advance of Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters this week, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is giving players the chance to play as The Mad Titan, Thanos, for a villainous twist.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2’s Thanos mission isn’t based on Infinity War, however. Thanos and his “children” — Corvus Glaive, Cull Obsidian, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw — instead head to Attilan, home of the Inhumans, for an invasion.

Here’s Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s description of the new add-on:

This action-packed level offers players the chance to control Thanos, one of the most dangerous Super Villains in the Marvel Universe, and his ruthless army. The Mad Titan and the Children of Thanos have invaded Attilan to take on Black Bolt and the Inhumans in an all-new original game level. Working as a team, the menacing crew must work their way through the various levels of Attilan before they are given the opportunity to break through to Black Bolt’s throne.

The DLC also includes a couple of new, Avengers: Infinity War-inspired playable heroes: Hulkbuster 2.0 and young Groot.

The Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Character and Level Pack costs $2.99 and is included as part of the game’s $14.99 season pass. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 is available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
