We’re all waiting with bated breath to see if our Avengers and allies are any match for Thanos in this Friday’s release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War! The Mad Titan’s reach extends beyond the big screen as our heroes present a united front across Marvel Games’ portfolio of games! Let’s dive right in and see what’s happening in every corner of our games universe.
Can you wield the power of the Infinity Stones? LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 can help you find out as they’re giving you the chance to play as Thanos with its Avengers: Infinity War-inspired Level and Character Pack, available now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One!
In true villainous fashion, Thanos and the Black Order (Corvus Glaive, Cull Obsidian, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw) arrive at Attilan to cause trouble in an all-new original game level. Working as a team, the menacing crew must work their way through the various levels of Attilan before they are given the opportunity to break through to Black Bolt’s throne. The DLC also includes a couple of new Avengers: Infinity War-inspired playable heroes: Hulkbuster 2.0 and young Groot. The Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Character and Level Pack costs $2.99 and is included as part of the game’s $14.99 season pass.
Corvus Glaive, Thanos’ right-hand man, makes his way to the Battlerealm on Thursday, April 26. The only thing deadlier than this sly, cunning lieutenant’s tactical mind is the halberd he yields to swiftly slice his enemies. His abilities include Glaive of Immortality, Persistent Cruelty, Glaive’s Immunity, and Armor Break.

Don’t miss out on the “Trials of the Mad Titan,” which kicks off today and runs through June 6! The powers of the Battlerealm’s Infinity Stones have spread throughout the Contest, leaving pockets of their condensed energies ripe for the picking. Cut your teeth on foes infused with the power of the Stones each day, and then collect Boosts that will temporarily give you access to the unique powers offered by each Stone! Combine these boosts on the final day each week to take on power enemies in the Trial of Omniscience, where the greatest rewards and most dangerous enemies lie.
