We’ve known for a bit now that LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 will boast a verbose roster of Heroes and Villains, including the time traveling antagonist, Kang the Conqueror. Earlier Thursday, the official trailer for the game was released.
The trailer introduces us to the Conquering Villain and the band of superheroes who must stop him, including the brave telepathic Russian space dog that brought them together, Cosmo, who’s BFFs with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Join Star-Lord, Thor, Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Hulk, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, Rocket Raccoon, Iron Man, Cowboy Captain America, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Groot and much more in the fight against Kang.
It was revealed that the game’s story was written by the mind behind the 2001 “Kang Dynasty” arc of the Avengers, Kurt Busiek.
Busiek’s arc saw Kang the Conqueror successfully take over the world, so could we see the same plot occur in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2? As of now, we know that Kang has transported numerous cities from across time and space to create a Hub World known as Chronopolis.
LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 will see Kang the Conqueror voiced by Peter Serafinowicz, known to many recently as the voice of The Tick in the Amazon Prime series. He also played a small role in the original Guardians of the Galaxy film as Denarian Saal, a member of the Nova Corps.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has stated that LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 will be a game with branching narratives, set in “Ancient Egypt, The Old West, Sakaar, New York City in 2099 and many other Marvel settings.” Sakaar is the planet on which the Hulk was once captured and pressed into a gladiatorial arena, a story which served as inspiration for this November’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Alongside the story, Season Pass info for the game was announced, featuring six Level Packs and four Character Packs in total. The Season Pass will be available separately for $14.99, or as part of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Deluxe Edition for $74.99.
LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 will be released on November 14th, 2017 for Consoles and PC.
