Ewing and Rocafort's "Ultimates" Stand Guard Against Alien Empires & Cosmic Entities
Believe it or not, there’s more to LEGO Dimensions than throwing together a bunch of characters from unrelated franchises into the same video game. There’s actually a story, as this new trailer demonstrates.
You see, evil mastermind Lord Vortech vows to rule the LEGO Multiverse by summoning characters from assorted worlds to help him find the Foundational Elements that will allow him to achieve his goal. When a powerful vortex appears and sweeps up characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO Movie, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle set out to save their friends, only to discover that Lord Vortech is summoning villains from different LEGO worlds to help him gain control.
If you always wanted to know what a conversation between the Dark Knight and Shaggy — yes, Shaggy of “Scooby-Doo” fame would sound like, a new video promoting the upcoming “LEGO Dimensions” has you covered.
TT Games, Warner Bros. and The LEGO Group have released a new promo that features Batman and and Shaggy talking cars. Always looking out for his image, the Dark Knight questions the always-lovable Shaggy about his new ride, wanting to know if it has shields, bulletproof paneling and, most importantly, if it comes in black. But it might not be the car you’re expecting.
Peter Capaldi provides the voice of the Twelfth Doctor in a new trailer for the upcoming LEGO Dimensions video game. The Doctor Who expansion pack will team the time traveling hero — every incarnation ever! — with Batman, Wyldstyle and Gandalf as the team race to save the universe, LEGO War Doctor, Cybermen and Daleks be damned!
You might’ve expected the Honest Trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight to spotlight the disastrous PC rollout, but Smosh Games avoids such low-hanging fruit. Instead, it takes a shot at the game’s unabashed tankiness – the souped-up Batmobile that starts out as a fun extra feature but soon “becomes a chore.”
Of course, that’s not the only target: At four and a half minutes, the Honest Trailer has plenty of time to take swipes at the post-apocalyptic wasteland that is Gotham City, Origins, Batman’s billion-dollar arsenal, barely used sidekicks and the “mystery” of Arkham Knight.
Just a day after its launch, Warner Bros. last night suspended Windows PC sales of Batman: Arkham Knight. The move comes in the wake of thousands of negative user reviews for the highly anticipated finale to the Rocksteady Studios trilogy.
The game has been removed from sale on Steam, although the listing remains.
Complaints about the technical performance of the PC version began to flood social media and Steam shortly after Arkham Knight’s debut on Tuesday, with many users and observers dubbing the launch a “disaster.” Rocksteady’s initial statement on Tuesday referred to “our external PC development partner,” which led to the determination that the PC port was outsourced to 12-person developer Iron Galaxy Studios.
Just days before the June 23 release of Batman: Arkham Knight, WB Games has abruptly canceled the $200 Batmobile Edition.
The highest-tier collector’s edition offered, it came bundled with an 80-page art book, a limited-edition comic, an exclusive New 52 skin pack and a transforming Batmobile statue. Kotaku reports that a problem with the latter, produced by Project TriForce, led to the last-minute cancellation.
We already knew LEGO Dimensions would include Valve’s popular puzzle game Portal in its mashup world, but this new trailer from Warner Bros. and TT Games demonstrates just how fully it will be integrated.
In the video, which debuted at E3, Portal‘s primary antagonist GLaDOS puts Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle through a series of tests that can only be solved using the LEGO Dimensions Toy Pad (it’s what allows players to introduce characters, vehicles and devices into the toy-to-life game). The footage also depicts Homer Simpson, who doesn’t fare so well, and Portal’s protagonist Chell.
This morning at E3, Square Enix unveiled a new gameplay trailer for the long-anticipated Kingdom Hearts III, which the company confirmed will include elements from Disney’s Tangled.
The footage is sure to please franchise fans, who will be frustrated to learn there’s still no release date. That game was officially announced at E3 2013 following years of rumors and speculation, but there’s been little news about its development since then.
Hasbro is gearing up for the July 17 release of Ant-Man by unveiling its final two Marvel exclusives for Comic-Con International in San Diego, both featuring the shrinking hero.
The first is a .75-inch non-articulated Ant-Man figure, based on Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang. Priced at $9.99 (yeah, I know), it comes in a Pym Technologies matchbox.
Eighteen years after the release of the original, Square Enix and Sony announced last night at E3 that they’re remaking Final Fantasy VII for PlayStation 4. Presumably other consoles will follow.
Development of the aptly titled Final Fantasy VII Remake will be led by key members of the original game team, including producer Yoshinori Kitase, director Tetsuya Nomura and scenario writer Kazushige Nojima.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the launch trailer for LEGO Jurassic World, the family-friendly adventure that allows gamers to relive all four franchise films, and even play as LEGO dinosaurs.
Arriving today in North America, even as Jurassic World opens in theaters, the game recreates scenes and action sequences from the movies, and enables fans to fully explore the grounds of Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna.
If Ubisoft’s Toy Soldiers: War Chest wasn’t on your radar before, it undoubtedly will be now: The company revealed this morning the toy-versus-toy action and strategy game will include characters from Masters of the Universe and G.I. Joe.
The fourth game in the Signal Studios series, it’s billed as a battle of eight armies, with “one toy box to defend.” Judging from the trailer, it’s effectively an epic bedroom-floor battle imagined by sugar-fueled 8-year-old, using all the toys in the box. Only, y’know, played out in a video game.
Add one more in-game skin to the growing list of incentives to preorder Batman: Arkham Knight, the hotly anticipated conclusion of the Rocksteady Studios trilogy.
Those who preorder the $90 Premium Edition will not only get the game, the Harley Quinn DLC and a Season Pass for future DLC content, but also an exclusive Batman Flashpoint skin. That’s of course a nod to the 2011 DC Comics crossover that depicted an alternate timeline in which a young Bruce Wayne is gunned down in Crime Alley, and his father Thomas becomes a gun-wielding Dark Knight.
The Batmobile undergoes some serious upgrades in this new trailer for LEGO Dimensions that showcases the rebuild features of the “t0y-to-life” game: Every vehicle and gadget can be built and then rebuilt twice more to create three different objects that can be introduced into play.
The trailer also features more game footage that confirms the inclusion of some of the properties leaked last month (Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment made it official that we’ll be seeing The Simpsons, Scooby-Doo, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, Portal, Jurassic World, LEGO Chima and Midway Arcade franchise).
Less than two months after WB Games and TT Games announced LEGO’s answer to Disney Infinity and Skylanders, they’re returned to officially unveil what appears to be LEGO’s response to the wildly popular Minecraft.
Available beginning today through STEAM Early Access, to allow for feedback and improvements, LEGO Worlds is an open-world, fully customizable game for players to explore and manipulate with LEGO models and a brick-by-brick editing tool, unlocking everything from cowboys and vampires to steamrollers and digging machines as they go.
