Marvel's Avengers and Jurassic World join the LEGO videogame series
For my friends who are fans of the pick-up-and-play model that Traveler's Tales have implemented with their infamous LEGO videogame series, we have two great franchises that will be joining the mold this year! First up is LEGO Jurassic World, which will include the story of all 4 movies in the series thus far, released the same month the latest film hits theaters in June. Later this year will see the arrival of LEGO Marvel's Avengers, which will cover both Joss Whedon films and then some. Check out the specs below.
LEGO Jurassic World

The game will be available in June for the Xbox One, all-in-one games and entertainment system, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, the Wii U™ system from Nintendo, Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system, and Windows PC.
LEGO Marvel’s Avengers

Play as the most powerful Super Heroes in their quest to save humanity.

I have fond memories of working at Blockbuster Video (remember those?!?) when LEGO Star Wars hit consoles and completely blew me away with its simplistic yet addictive gameplay. What can I say? I'm a sucker for collectables when it comes to my video games, and while the formula hasn't changed too much in the LEGO series, the gameplay remains as fun as it ever was. As far as I'm concerned, the list of must-buy games for 2015 just went up by two.
LEGO Jurassic World will hit in June, while LEGO Marvel's Avengers will come this Fall.
