Lego Marvel Super Heroes publisher Warner Bros has revealed a Thor-themed Asgard DLC pack will be available to purchase at launch. The add-on will contain eight playable characters from the upcoming Thor movie, although their identities are still to be revealed.
Both Thor and his villainous brother Loki are already playable characters in the game, so we’re not sure if they’ll be part of the eight, although they could – we suppose – appear with alternate outfits. We fully expect to see love interest Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and king of the gods Odin (Anthony Hopkins) included though.
The addition of eight new playable characters takes the confirmed playable character tally to 171. There are 155 playable in the core game, and 16 DLC characters have been revealed so far – eight from the Asgard pack, and another eight – Symbiote Spider-Man, Dark Phoenix, Falcon, Winter Soldier, Classic Hawkeye, Thanos, A-Bomb, Beta Ray Bill – are available through the DLC Super Pack, which is offered as a pre-order incentive with various retailers.
A price for the Asgard DLC pack is still TBC, and we’ve contacted Warner Bros to double check the extra content will be available for all platforms the game is being released on – Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, 3DS, Vita, Xbox One, and PS4. We’ll update this article as soon as we’ve had a response.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes is scheduled for release 22 October in North America, and 15 November in Europe. The Xbox One and PS4 versions will be available sometime in November.
If Lego games are your thing, don’t forget there’s a Lego game sale happening in the European PS Store at the moment.
