The official Lego Youtube channel has updated with a reveal trailer for the LEGO DC Super-Villains video game. The game is exciting to see specially since the last standalone Lego video game based on the property was Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham in 2014. While DC characters prominently appeared in Lego Dimensions, it has been some time since they had a standalone title. Unlike the previous games, which were mostly based on the heroes on the DC Universe, the latest game will mostly focus on the villains.
Warner Brothers provided an official synopsis for the game.
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 customizable 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 customize 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.
Those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition of the game will also gain access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack, as well as the season pass. The Deluxe Physical Edition will also include an exclusive Lex Luthor Superman minifigure and those who pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack.
LEGO DC Super-Villains will be released for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 16, 2018.
