It’s Good to be Bad in LEGO DC Super-Villains
TT Games and publisher Warner Bros have announced LEGO DC Super-Villains, the first LEGO game to have a story centred around the bad guys in DC lore. It will launch on October 16th for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
Players will be able to create and play as their very own DC Super-Villain, another LEGO game first. Their character will team up with iconic DC villains — including Joker, Harley Quinn, and Lex Luthor — in an entirely original story written in collaboration with DC. Don’t take it too seriously though, it’s still a LEGO game through and through which means plenty of silly, slapstick humour.
“LEGO DC Super-Villains provides players a fun and humorous way to cause mischief by unleashing their DC Super-Villain’s sinister powers and amusing abilities,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “With an unprecedented amount of customization options to choose from, players can create and customize their character at the start of the story, unlocking new powers and abilities as they progress through the funniest LEGO game to date.”
In LEGO DC Super-Villains’ story, the Justice League has disappeared. A new group of heroes, called the ‘Justice Syndicate,’ take it upon themselves to be Earth’s new protector. The Legion of Doom, however, isn’t convinced that these new “heroes” actually have Earth’s best interests at heart. It’s your job “to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.”
As has become the norm for LEGO games, DC Super-Villains will feature two-player local co-op throughout the entire story mode, which should be fun during the game’s “epic boss fights.”
A Deluxe Edition — which contains the main game, Season Pass, as well as early access to the TV Series DLC Character Pack — is available for pre-order. Deluxe Edition physical owners can expect an exclusive mini figurine of Lex Luthor Superman, while digital buyers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack.
