Busy times at TT Towers

Arthur Parsons

So welcome back, you wonderful people. So much has happened since my last post. Development on the game is moving at an astonishing pace – there is LEGO flying left, right and centre, everyone on the team running around in a complete blur. So many new and exciting things are going into the game all the time, it really is astonishing seeing all of the brilliantly talented guys and girls on the team crafting away, making this amazing LEGO adventure as brilliant as possible. Every single day in the office I get to see so much new content it blows my mind, only today I saw the fully finished Raft level, and trust me – you guys are going to have so much fun playing that one! Each and every level we finish seems to be more awesome than the last, and it is marvellous seeing the journey these levels have taken from initial paper design to finished quality.

Anyway, more important than that, you guys want new news, new facts, information that will satisfy your hunger for all things LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes™, right?!!!

I recently returned from Los Angeles, where some of the TT guys and I were lucky enough to be showing off LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes™ to the great and the good of the world's videogame journalists at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). A spectacularly busy three days of non-stop demos and interviews, showing people just how terrific the game is, which was so enjoyable. We started the show off with a reveal of a new trailer for the game, so if you haven't watched this, then you really should – you'll enjoy it. Watch the Marvel Super Heroes Trailer

Whilst at E3 we announced new characters, including Magneto. We revealed that the game will be coming out on the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, as well as all the majority of other consoles and handheld devices. And we showed off the Asgard level, which features Loki and the Destroyer armor, which our LEGO builders in the office did a sensational job of creating from LEGO. The stand at E3 was a constant hub of activity. All of the consoles were on the go non-stop, which shows just how much people are wanting to get a look at the game – well, that and the jaw-dropping LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes™ wall behind the consoles. I'm not sure of the exact number of bricks in it, but it definitely drew the crowds!!!

Then came little bit of sleep. OK, quite a lot of sleep, as I was exhausted, and a quick airplane trip back across the Atlantic later and I'm back in the office, catching up on the latest events in the office, letting everyone know how well the game was received by everyone. But there is no rest, not when we want to make you the greatest game you'll have ever played... EVER!!!

So the frantic pace in the office from before E3 is now even more frantic. We are trying to get all of the content into the game, all of the levels, LEGO models, characters, everything... and then some extra bits! When you buy the game it very well might burst out of the box at you, it's so full.

Anyway, back on track, more new exciting things that you want to know about. In tandem with us trying to get all of the game content in, we are now working on some exclusive new content for Comic Con in San Diego this month. This is a really big deal for us, as it is going to be the first time that you – yes, YOU, the gamers that will eventually buy this game and play this game – will be able to get your hands on it and actually have a play of LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes™... EXCITING, RIGHT?!!! Obviously, you will only be able to play it if you are going to attend Comic Con in San Diego. If you are, though, then make sure you hunt the game down and come and play it. I'll be there, so if you want, you can come and play a level in 2 player with me – that's when the game is at its best.

So as well as the game being playable there, we are also going to make several announcements that will totally knock your socks off. You'll be pinching yourself when you see what we will be showing and announcing – it really is that good! So if you are there, keep your ear to the ground (not literally of course because someone might accidentally stand on it), so that you can be one of the first to hear the news and see what we will be showing off. I can't go into any detail here. That's right, I can't even sneakily hint at what this stuff might be – this is super secret stuff, protected by SHIELD itself!!!

...however, I think I might be able to sneak a new character reveal your way – one that NOBODY else knows about yet… so a kind of LEGO blog exclusive, I guess. That's probably why some you are still reading, right? I'll even see if I can sneak a screenshot up for you too! So let's see, I'll do it in secret code again – you know, just to make sure the information gets to you without anyone knowing. Actually, even better, let's do it like a game show – so I'll give you clues, and then you can buzz in when you know the answer! Well, you can pretend to buzz in, as I actually don't have any buzzers, and probably wouldn't be able to build any out of LEGO that would link to every one of you. OK, so pretend to buzz in...

Test your buzzer... everything working, OK? Right, let's go...

The character is a classic villain of the X-Men...
He is usually pretty grouchy...
..BZZZZZ...
Nope, sorry wrong answer... just kidding....
He is a character that you would associate with Wolverine...
He doesn't really like Wolverine....
He has claws....
...BZZZZ...
YAY, YOU!!!! You've got it right!

(If not then the answer is Sabretooth! Just keep it a secret, OK? He's one of the bad guys in the latest level we've just finished off, and he is brilliant fun to play in freeplay.)

Whoops.... I've just looked over my shoulder, and there is a queue of people waiting for answers to questions, so I'm going to need to sign off and get back to work. So until next time, keep your eyes and ears out for all the news from our announcements at Comic Con. Until next time... Excelsior!!!
