Some LEGO Marvel’s Avengers DLC is PlayStation Only

A new press release from LEGO confirms that there will indeed be content from “Ant-Man” and “Captain America: Civil War” featured in the upcoming LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, but it will only be available as free DLC for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 users, and only for a limited time.

LEGO Marvel’s Avengers will feature content from Marvel’s comics and from eight Marvel films: “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Ant-Man,” and “Captain America: Civil War.”

Arthur Parsons of TT Games has teased that the upcoming Season Pass will feature content from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the TV show. Fans of the Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones will be glad to know that those characters (plus Luke Cage) will appear too, though they will be based on their comic book equivalents, as the TV shows are not very kid-friendly.

The Civil War DLC will be available at the game’s launch on January 26—three months before the release of the movie. This might be our chance to learn a bit more about the film before it hits theaters. Unfortunately, the DLC is just a character pack, and includes no levels. The Captain America: Civil War Character Pack comes with nine playable characters:

  • Agent 13
  • Black Panther
  • Captain America
  • Crossbones
  • Falcon
  • Iron Man (MK 46)
  • Scarlet Witch
  • War Machine
  • Winter Soldier

Scarlet Witch, Captain America, and the Winter Soldier

“Ant-Man,” of course, came out last June, and its DLC will include both playable characters and a level based on the film. The Character & Level Pack won’t be coming until spring, though.

Here are the nine “Ant-Man” characters you get with the DLC:

  • Ant-Man (Scott Lang)
  • Yellowjacket
  • Hope Van Dyne
  • Hank Pym
  • Cassie Lang
  • Scott Lang
  • Darren Cross
  • Luis
  • Ant-Man (Hank Pym)
  • The Wasp (Janet Van Dyne)
  • Ant-Thony (Flying Ant)

Ant-Thony the Ant! Awww I love that guy.
