It is going to take an awful lot of hours to unlock every character in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, but the developers are making that very challenge a tantalising prospect.
The official Marvel website confirms that Agent Venom will show up in the open world section of the game, while canine character Lockjaw and Medusa will appear as part of the storyline. Arthur Parsons, Head of Design at TT Games, shared a little more information.
Marvel.com: Agent Venom is back from outer space! How does the symbiote-powered, former military man factor into “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2?”
Arthur Parsons: Agent Venom is a great character to bring to the “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2” roster. You’ll encounter him in the Chronopolis Open Hub World as part of the free play quests. Being an expert marksman, Flash Thompson is an awesome character to play as in the game, especially due to his super-human strength and skilled combat abilities. He may also have a trick or two that we hope to share with players later on.
Marvel.com: Alongside Agent Venom, a couple of Inhuman favorites were just revealed. Getting to play as Lockjaw is a brand new kind of experience for Marvel fans. What is he like in the game? Does the character have any special abilities?
Arthur Parsons: Lockjaw’s LEGO character is adorable, definitely a favorite of mine. The animation team at TT Games has given him a real personality so it’s great to bring him into the LEGO Marvel videogame series for the first time ever. He’s able to teleport, which is really useful at different points in the game, especially given the emphasis on time all throughout “LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2.”
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is now available for pre-order from Amazon and is due for release on November 10, 2017.
