Today sees the release of a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 DLC pack in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, adding a brand new level and several characters from the franchise.

The new level is inspired by the opening scene of the movie, allowing players to battle a giant alien-monster-thing known as the Abilisk. The playable characters included are Star-Lord (variant), Kraglin, Stakar Ogord, Tullk, Rocket (Ravager variant), and Ego, all of which can utilise their own unique abilities as they go to battle against the inter-dimensional creature. For the sake of clarification, it is worth noting that this is a separate release to the original Guardians of the Galaxy pack which was available from day one.

This new DLC is available to purchase separately for £2.50 / $2.99, or comes included with the season pass for £11.99 / $14.99. Coupled with two extra character packs that have appeared alongside this release ('Agents of Atlas' and 'Out of Time'), today brings some nice little additions to the game.
