New Expansion Packs for Lego Dimensions
There’s three new expansion packs coming to the ever-popular Lego Dimensions; Night Rider Fun Pack, Excalibur Batman Fun Pack, and Lego Batman Movie Story Pack.
To coincide with the release of the Lego Batman Movie, the new Story Pack provides deep, story-driven gameplay with iconic DC characters in six puzzle-packed levels. There’s also more Lego Gateway Bricks, allowing players to build the batcomputer atop the Lego Toy Pad. Interestingly, this will be the only video game tie in to the Lego Batman Movie.
It’ll come with buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures, and the three-in-one buildable Batwing, which can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank. Players can also transform their Starter Pack Batman minifigure into the Lego Batman Movie version when they place him in corresponding levels within the Story Pack. You’ll play the entire movie alongside Batgirl and Robin, fighting off the Joker with Batgirl’s batarang, glide and stealth abilities that’ll help reach areas with high security access. Her Detective Mode is also pretty good to solve puzzles, whereas Robin’s agility and dive skills also provide Vent Access.
You can also turn Robin into Nightwing, and he and Batgirl provide access to the new expansion’s Adventure World, which has its own unique battle arena and competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
Then there’s the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack. It comes with a buildable Batman minifigure and a three-in-one buildable Bionic Steed, which can be rebuilt into the Bat-Raptor and Ultrabat for in-game abilities. You can use Batman’s Master Builder and Sword Switching abilities to solve puzzles and take down enemies. It’ll also give you access to the Lego Batman Movie 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. The Fun Pack features a buildable Michael Knight minifigure, and a rebuildable three-in-one K.I.T.T. that can be rebuilt into the K.I.T.T. Jet and Goliath Armoured Semi for upgraded in-game powers. Michael Knight’s dodging and dash abilities can be used to figure out puzzles and off enemies, and his Wrist Watch gives him x ray vision and hacking abilities. You can also fight crime on four wheels with K.I.T.T., the highly advanced, artificially intelligent robotic vehicle! And, as always, you’ll get access to the Knight Rider Adventure World and Battle Arena.
Lego Dimensions is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and the Wii U.
