Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has announced that it will release Lego DC Super-Villains this October on consoles and PC.
The latest instalment of the perennially popular Lego games will be developed by TT Games. Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment was keen to highlight that Lego DC Super-Villains will have an original storyline: “Lego DC Super-Villains [will be] the first Lego game to put players at the centre of a villain-centric adventure packed with favourite locations and characters from across the DC universe. For the first time, a Lego game is giving players the ability to create and play as their own DC Super-Villain throughout the game. Their character becomes the centre of the story, while teaming up with an iconic variety of villains to adventure through the hilarious and original story written in collaboration with DC.”
According to Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment, “In Lego DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customisable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.
“At the beginning of the campaign, players can create their own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode. As players progress, they will unlock new abilities, powers and can continue to customise their character to take on the evil threat. Friends and family can join story mode at any time with the fun, two-player, local co-op experiences where players can team up in epic boss fights.”
Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation at DC Entertainment offered some insight into the DC Universe characters we can expect to see in Lego DC Super-Villains: “DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”
Lego DC Super-Villains is scheduled for a 19 October 2018 launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC. Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment added that: “A Deluxe Edition of the game, featuring the main game content, Season Pass content and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack, will be available for pre-order soon. An exclusive Lego mini figure, Lex Luthor Superman, also comes with the physical version of the Deluxe and Standard Editions, while digital consumers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack with their Deluxe Edition.”
