Warner Bros. have unveiled Year 2 content for LEGO Dimensions, which includes characters and content from fan-favorite franchises.
LEGO Dimensions, Warner Bros. toy-to-life franchise is set to expand with some big name franchises in Year 2. New Story Packs, Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs will usher in new characters, content and levels from over sixteen new properties.
This all begins September 27 when the Ghostbusters (2016) Story Pack, Mission Impossible and Adventure Time Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and the A-Team Fun Pack launch. Additional packs based on other franchises will released between the September 27 launch and summer 2017. These franchises include Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The LEGO Batman Movie, The Goonies, Sonic the Hedgehog, Teen Titans Go, LEGO City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, Beetlejuice, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.
“We’ve built upon the existing LEGO DIMENSIONS Starter Pack to expand the gameplay possibilities with entirely new LEGO experiences that can’t be found anywhere else,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “We can now provide players with even more customization and mash-up opportunities, and all are compatible with the existing game and packs. Battle Arenas also introduce a fun new way for friends and family to join the action together and battle as favorite characters, which is an exciting innovation for LEGO videogames.”
“LEGO DIMENSIONS is a significant part of our LEGO videogames portfolio, and we are excited to offer fans many more iconic entertainment franchises combined with new, enhanced ways to play,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “TT Games continues to innovate and expand the game experience, which gives players breakthrough digital and physical gameplay with an amazing amount of world-class entertainment properties connected together.”
“We are excited to continue our partnership with TT Games and WBIE and bring even more characters to life through LEGO DIMENSIONS,” said Niels Jørgensen, Vice President, Digital Games for the LEGO Group. “The videogame has allowed our fans to extend their LEGO play experience in a whole new way and the new expansion packs will create even more play possibilities through exciting properties.”
Year 2 will also introduce the Battle Arena, LEGO’s first competitive mode. It’s been designed for four-player split-screen and is accessed through LEGO minifigures released during Year 2. Each comes with a golden Toy Tag that unlocks a Battle Arena within the Free Play Adventure World. Each arena comes with four different gameplay modes and includes its own unique maps, traps, and special powers.
LEGO Dimensions Year 2 begins rolling out September 27 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Year 2 minifigures are compatible with Year 1’s ToyPad so there is no reason to buy another Starter Pack.
