Warner Bros, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment have announced LEGO DC Super-Villains, the first LEGO game to put players at the center of an adventure entirely dedicated to the super-villains, with all their favorite characters and scenarios of the DC Universe.
For the first time, a LEGO game offers players the chance to create and play the role of a DC supervillain throughout the game. The adventure revolves around their character, who will have to ally with many legendary supercriminals, in a hilarious original story written in collaboration with DC. LEGO DC Super-Villains will be available from October 16, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One X, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
“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, CEO of 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.”
“The original story in Lego DC Super-Villains flips the DC universe upside down as players embark on an unforgettable adventure starring memorable villains set across notable DC locations,” said Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment. “DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”
“LEGO DC Super-Villains gives players a new way to play with their favorite DC characters with a splash of light-hearted, villainous antics,” said Sean McEvoy, VP Digital Games, The LEGO Group. “Players will enjoy exploring the expansive DC universe in the way only a LEGO game can deliver.”
In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has vanished, leaving the task of protecting Earth to a new group of heroes coming from a parallel universe and calling itself “Justice Syndicate”. The famous DC super-villains of the Legion of Doom will discover that the new saviors of the Earth may not be as heroic as it seems. Led by the player character, completely customizable, this group of crazy villains will have to join forces to discover and destroy the evil plans that the mysterious strangers have in store.
At the start of the campaign, players can create their own super-villain and lead personal character and ally with many DC super-villains during the story mode. As the game progresses, players unlock new powers and abilities and can continue to customize their character to get rid of an obscure threat. Friends and family can join history at any time thanks to the fun local cooperative modes, where two players can team up and face epic boss fights.
