If there's one thing we can say about the Guardians of the Galaxy, it's that they know how to have fun. And that's what you're likely to get with the new DLC pack for Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. It's available now for $2.99 but, if you'd rather go full tilt with post-launch content, it's included in the season pass for $14.99. That's across all platforms, including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.
As the name implies, the new content is inspired by one of the best entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Included in the pack is a new level for players to explore that's inspired by the film's opening sequence. While Baby Groot danced through most of that encounter, you'll be able to run around completing objectives and even go toe-to-toe with the alien monster, Abilisk.
In case it's new skins you're in the market for, this GoG DLC includes a nice selection. You'll get a variant Star-Lord character, Kraglin, Stakar Ogord, Tulk, Ego and the Ravager variant for Rocket Raccoon. Just like all of the other characters in the game, these new additions have their own abilities inspired by the film and comics.
Speaking of characters, the core game isn't exactly lacking in that department. The roster for LMSH2 is massive and spans generations, including characters like Hulk from the caveman days, on up to Spider-Man of the future. While most characters can be acquired through regular play, these Guardians 2 characters are exclusive to the DLC.
And, just like with all Lego games, you'll be taking those characters across a wide variety of colorful worlds ripped straight from the pages of Marvel (or pulled from the silver screen, as is the case with this Guardians content). The core game boasts a story co-written by Marvel staple Kurt Busiek which brings an insane number of characters and timelines together for one massive blocky bash. There's also a pretty spiffy hub world known as Chronopolis that you can explore between missions.
Our review of LMSH2 was pretty favorable, complementing the variety and sense of fun seen in the epic romp. If you've found yourself enjoying the core game, you're likely to get more of the same out of this Guardian-themed DLC. Hopefully, this means some Thor: Ragnarok content is on the horizon, too.
