Warner Bros. has announced the details for the upcoming expansions to LEGO Dimensions, their take on the toys-to-life business, and I must say they’re going about it the right way. In all 17 new packs will be released to expand the game play of the already stellar game that was released last year. Some of these new packs will simply add new characters to the playable roster, others will add completely new adventures to be had, all based on very popular properties across movies and TV shows.
It all begins on September 27th when the first of the new sets arrive. Those sets are:
Ghostbusters Story Pack (which includes content based on the upcoming Ghostbusters film such as Abby Yates minifig, and a 3-in-1 Ecto 1 vehicle)
Adventure Time Level Pack
Mission Impossible Level Pack
Harry Potter Team Pack
Adventure Time Team Pack
A-Team Fun Pack
From there additional expansions will be released.
“We’ve built upon the existing LEGO DIMENSIONS Starter Pack to expand the gameplay possibilities with entirely new LEGO experiences that can’t be found anywhere else,” – Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games
Read on for further details about what will be released throughout the Fall and into next Summer.
While no details have been given as to what to expect from these remaining properties we do know that there will be content for the game added from:
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
- The LEGO Batman Movie
- The Goonies
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Teen Titans Go!
- LEGO City Undercover
- Knight Rider
- The Powerpuff Girls
- ET the Extra-Terrestrial
All of these packs will work with the existing content of the game. There will be no new starter pack for this year. All of this content will be added seamlessly to the game as it’s currently released. One new addition to the game this year will be all new Battle Arenas that allow for up to four players to play in a competitive split screen mode, which sounds like it will be similar to something like Super Smash Bros.
All of this new content for LEGO Dimensions will be available on Wii U PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
