GamesBeat has a pair of new articles published for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2. The site went hands-on with the game, and shared a bunch of information from the demo event. We’ve rounded up the various tidbits below.

– Takes place in Chronopolis
– This is a city where all of the realities converge
– A villain named Kang wants to rule everything
– Threatens the whole Marvel Universe
– That story becomes the reason why you can play hundreds of Marvel characters in the game in an effort to stop Kang
– Much bigger than the original 2013 game
– Start out as the Guardians of the Galaxy
– Switch between characters such as Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, and Baby Groot
– They showed up at the end of the last game because they were focused on “something else”
– That turned out to be the plot of the sequel
– Much bigger open world
– Bigger story
– More level sections, more hidden missions, more open world gameplay

– At least 30 other superheroes come into the campaign story later
– The original branching story was co-written by comic book veteran Kurt Busiek

– Gameplay demo has players switching among the Guardians and figure out how to build a manual override to open a hatch so that we could exit the spaceship
– Deal with a gigantic robot monster, dubbed a Celestial, on the ground
– The Celestial comes down into the city and plants himself on the shoreline
