LEGO Dimensions gets new characters; Rebuild vehicles three times via in-game instructions

Warner Bros has confirmed that LEGO Dimensions will include The Simpsons, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, Portal, Jurassic World, Midway Arcade, LEGO Chima and Scooby Doo.

These fan favourite worlds will join DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago and the Back to the Future worlds in an adventure playable with the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack.

For gamers that want to customise their LEGO Dimensions experience, Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs based on these fourteen brands will provide new buildable characters, vehicles and gadgets, as well as game content with mission-based levels and unique in-game abilities. All expansion packs will provide players the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game.

It was also revealed in a new trailer that every LEGO vehicle and gadget can be physically built and then rebuilt twice for a total of three different objects that do entirely different things in the digital game for massive variety. Once players earn a building achievement, they will get in-game instructions that show them how to use the same physical LEGO bricks to rebuild vehicles and gadgets into different objects that provide all-new abilities.

For example, the LEGO vehicle bricks that come in the Starter Pack can be used to build the LEGO Batmobile that enables players to activate accelerator switches. The Batmobile can be rebuilt and transformed into the LEGO Batblaster which adds Sonar Smash, a sonar gun that has the ability to break LEGO sonar bricks. The vehicle can then be rebuilt again as the LEGO Sonic Batray which adds a special attack in the form of a missile barrage. Players can fuse an upgraded vehicle to the LEGO Toy Tag, enabling them to take it and any new abilities with them to a friend’s game or wherever they’d like to play. Players can do this with every vehicle and every gadget from every pack.

LEGO Dimensions launches on September 29.

gonna pass on this - the fact they announced sooooo many packs will probably mean all the content is on the disc (obviously) and you will have a kind of sandbox/toybox mode like DI but I bet the playsets you unlock are about an hour or so long - not like the DI ones which last a good 5-6 hours each. This will be good for collectors of Lego but I don't see it doing as well as certain other games which do the same thing

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
