To the hardcore gamer, the comedic world-building and puzzle-solving mechanics of your standard LEGO video game might look a little silly, but LEGO has been making smash hit games for years - and there's a reason for their success. Packed with weird scenarios for your favorite characters to explore, LEGO took fan favorite franchises such as The Hobbit and Star Wars to new heights in previous games. Now, as LEGO gears up for the blockbuster year that is 2015, they're pulling out all the stops with old favorites and new heroes.
Today, the company announced upcoming game titles for [Jurassic World](movie:32752) and [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035), expanding on the LEGO-driven hype behind the upcoming sets, which may have spoiled certain aspects of Age of Ultron before their big announcement.
