New Lego Dimensions Expansions Announced For February 2016
Warner Bros. have announced details around three new expansion packs for LEGO Dimensions that will be available on February 10, 2017.
Coinciding with the release of the upcoming film on which it’s based, The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, will provide a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters in 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. The addition of Batgirl and Robin provide access to The LEGO Batman Movie’s Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
Batman fans will also be able to grab Excalibur Batman which will be featured in the LEGO Batman Movie. This pack includes 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. It also includes the LEGO Batman Movie’s Adventure World and Battle Arena.
Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. from the classic 80s TV series, Knight Rider, are also coming to LEGO Dimensions. Players can add the iconic duo with their own pack which includes 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.
Players can activate Michael Knight’s dodging and dash abilities in-game 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. The Knight Rider pack also includes its own Battle Arena.
