Sometimes it can mean there's a lack of fresh ideas between outings, but it also means a gradual sweep of improvements. Lego Marvel Avengers looks to be one of the most full-featured and impressive Lego games in recent years however, with several massive open-worlds housing storylines to go with a heap of Marvel movies.
It's inspirations range from The Avengers to Captain American: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 3.

The Lego series continues to be rooted in the same old engine it's been using for years, with only a fewer minor tweaks given to usher into the modern era. As such the system requirements for Lego Marvel Avengers really aren't all that different to what we saw for all of the recent Lego games. To that end, you only need a very low-end gaming rig to play this, and the vast majority of PC gamers should be able to max out Lego Marvel Avengers without any issues.
The last outing for the series was Lego Jurassic World, and the recommended specs stay absolutely identical, aside from a slight bump in installation size. The big change is down at the low end for the minimum requirements. This is likely as a result of Lego Marvel Avengers featuring a much larger, much denser open-world New York than the mini open-world sections we saw in Lego Jurassic World. As such you're going to want a quad-core processor along with a low-end 400-series GeForce or 6000-series Radeon.
Aside from this it's worth noting that Windows XP is no longer supported, so if you're still rocking Microsoft's ancient operating system then it might be time for an upgrade. It's no longer officially supported by Microsoft either, so you are opening yourself up to potential security risks through continued use.
