The Avengers are assembling again to take on the baddies in the LEGO world in a new video game that will be released in January 2016.

And now fans of both Marvel comics and the LEGO franchise can see just what the game has in store for us in 12-minutes of gameplay footage that was just released.

LEGO Marvel's Avengers focuses on a few recent Marvel films from its cinematic universe including Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor: The Dark World, and more, with over 100 Marvel heroes and villains with different abilities that can be played with. Each section from the films is part of the linear storyline, but there are also minigames (like a thief that needs to be stopped), and sandbox areas that can be explored in the new free roam feature.

The gameplay footage starts off with a recreation of the opening scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron, and since this is a LEGO game we are talking about, we are sure there will be lots of slapstick comedic moments throughout the game.

In the 12-minutes of footage, we also see Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow and the Hulk in action as they attack Hydra's formerly secret base, highlighting the team aspect of the game. Any two characters can team up to perform a special combination attack such as Hulk throwing Captain America.

There is no denying that it's a game is full of explosive moments from just looking a few minutes of the gameplay.

The game description is as follows:

Play as Earth's Mightiest Heroes in their quest to save the world while reliving some of the most amazing moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the famed Battle of New York between the Avengers and Super Villain Loki as seen in Marvel's The Avengers.
