“Great Scott!” LEGO® DimensionsTM Adds More Iconic Characters from DC Comics, Back to the FutureTM and LEGO® NinjagoTM with New Expansion Packs!
In a new video featuring actor Christopher Lloyd reprising his famous role as Doc Brown from the Back to the Future films, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed today gameplay featuring even more beloved characters coming to LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming entertainment experience that merges physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay. In addition to LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and Wyldstyle, the three minifigure heroes used to start the experience, LEGO Dimensions will allow gamers to customize their experience post-launch and throughout the first half of 2016 with additional packs from the previously announced brands, including: DC Comics Team Pack featuring LEGO Joker and LEGO Harley Quinn minifigures, three additional DC Comics Fun Packs featuring LEGO Superman, LEGO Aquaman and LEGO Bane minifigures, Back to the Future Fun Pack with LEGO Doc Brown minifigure and two additional LEGO Ninjago Fun Packs with Sensei Wu and Lloyd minifigures.
These highly collectible Team Packs and Fun Packs will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as special in-game abilities. All expansion packs provide gamers the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game, in any world with any character – there are no limitations.
Players can bring up to seven characters, vehicles and weapons into the LEGO Dimensions game all at once by placing them on the LEGO Toy Pad to create extreme gameplay cross-overs, such as LEGO Superman piloting the LEGO DeLorean Time Machine through Hill Valley or LEGO Doc Brown fighting alongside LEGO Bane in New Ninjago City.
Future expansion pack purchases will continue to work with the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, even in the fall of next year. No compatibility chart necessary.
Additional well-known brands and expansion packs joining the adventure for 2015 and 2016 will be announced in the coming months.
