LEGO has announced its video game releases for 2015, and it's a list that's going to get fans all kinds of excited.
As fans (and we) have been speculating, LEGO Jurassic World is first up, coming in June to launch alongside the movie. The video game will incorporate the storylines from all four movies: Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Jurassic Park III and Jurassic World.
Gamers were first made aware of a possible LEGO game set in the Jurassic Park universe when a T-Rex cameoed during the credits of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, set to the Jurassic Park orchestral score by John Williams.
It was inevitable that there would be a sequel to TT Games' excellent LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, but most gamers were probably expecting a game with a "2" at the end of its name. Nope, TT Games is going in a different direction with the sequel, which is titled LEGO Marvel's Avengers. The first game featured an original storyline that incorporated all of the Marvel universe and its characters. LEGO Marvel's Avengers will take a different approach, following the plots of the movies The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Obviously, the main crew of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye will no doubt get the spotlight. LEGO Marvel's Avengers hits sometime this Fall. Both games are coming to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, PSVita, 3DS and Windows PC.
