As a huge fan of the Lego game series, I eagerly await news on the latest and greatest Lego video game. After a series of cryptic tweets, TTGames and WB Games announced Lego DC Super Villians, which will arrive on October 16th on Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch! Check out the teaser trailer below –
According to a press release, the Justice League has disappeared, and the Earth is now protected by the Justice Syndicate. The Justice Syndicate (perhaps a version of the Crime Syndicate?) is up to no good, leaving the DC Villains to stop their evil plans and keep the world safe. At the beginning of the campaign, players can create their own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode. As players progress, they will unlock new abilities, powers and can continue to customize their character to take on the evil threat. Friends and family can join story mode at any time with the fun, two-player, local co-op experiences where players can team up in epic boss fights.
“LEGO DC Super-Villains provides players a fun and humorous way to cause mischief by unleashing their DC Super-Villain’s sinister powers and amusing abilities,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “With an unprecedented amount of customization options to choose from, players can create and customize their character at the start of the story, unlocking new powers and abilities as they progress through the funniest LEGO game to date.”
“The original story in LEGO DC Super-Villains flips the DC universe upside down as players embark on an unforgettable adventure starring memorable villains set across notable DC locations,” said Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment. “DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”
“LEGO DC Super-Villains gives players a new way to play with their favorite DC characters with a splash of light-hearted, villainous antics,” said Sean McEvoy, VP Digital Games, The LEGO Group. “Players will enjoy exploring the expansive DC universe in the way only a LEGO game can deliver.”
Like other Lego games, a Deluxe Edition of the game will be available for purchase. It will feature the main game content, Season Pass content and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack. The Deluxe Edition is now available for pre-order. An exclusive LEGO minifigure, Lex Luthor Superman, also comes with the physical version of the Deluxe Edition, while digital consumers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack with their Deluxe Edition.
This will be a day one purchase for me and my kids. I can’t wait to create my own villain and save the world (while destroying things at the same time). Let us know what you think of the news in the comments!
