If ever there was a game that lent itself to expansions, LEGO Dimensions is it and today Warner Bros have revealed details around three highly collectable expansion packs.
Becoming available from Feb 10th 2017, the three packs come in the form of the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack and, most excitedly, the Knight Rider Fun Pack.
Coinciding with the release of the film on which it’s based, The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, will bring a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters in place. With six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks that allow players to build the Bat-Computer atop the LEGO Toy Pad. The pack comes with buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures and the 3-in-1 buildable Batwing which can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank. Gamers can play the complete movie and band together with Batgirl and Robin to fight off the Joker and his team of villains. Batgirl’s batarang, glide and stealth abilities can reach areas with high security access and Robin’s agility and dive skills provide sneak access. Players can also transform Robin into the Nightwing, utilise his vine cut, and deflect moves for more crime-fighting adventures. Batgirl and Robin provide access to the new The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
If that’s not enough to satisfy the Batman fans out there, then you can also grab the Excalibur Batman pack. The Fun Pack comes with a buildable Batman minifigure and a 3-in-1 buildable Bionic Steed which can be rebuilt into the Bat-Raptor and Ultrabat for additional in-game abilities. Players can use Batman’s Master Builder and Sword Switching abilities to solve puzzles and take down enemies. Batman also provides access to The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World and Battle Arena.
So, it’s all well and good dropping Batman into the game, but when we see the words ‘Knight Rider’, we really get interested and it’s with huge excitement that we see Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. from the classic 80s TV series both coming to LEGO Dimensions. Players can add the iconic duo with the Knight Rider Fun Pack featuring a buildable Michael Knight minifigure, and a rebuildable 3-in-1 K.I.T.T., that can be rebuilt into the K.I.T.T. Jet and Goliath Armoured Semi for upgraded in-game powers.
In the game, players can activate Michael Knight’s dodging and dash abilities to solve puzzles and overpower enemies or use his Wrist Watch to uncover secrets behind x-ray walls and outsmart enemies by hacking into terminals and following trails. Players can also fight crime on four wheels with K.I.T.T., the highly advanced, artificially intelligent robotic vehicle, to boost their gameplay. Michael Knight provides access to a new Knight Rider Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena.
So, whilst we’ll need to wait a little to get our hands on both the Batman and Knight Rider packs, releasing later this year will also be new expansions. In fact, The Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack will be available on 30th September and the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack, Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack, Gremlins Team Pack, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Adventure Time Fun Packs will be available on 18th November.
