LEGO DC SUPER-VILLAINS (Traveller’s Tales/WBIE – Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC – October 16) – It’s fun to be bad! LEGO’s next foray into the world of DC Comics will take an evil turn with the supervillains of the DC Universe, as the stars of the next LEGO action-adventure game. Lego DC Super-Villains will allow players to assume the role of their own custom DC villain and then team-up with the likes of The Joker, Harley Quinn, Reverse Flash and Harley Quinn. Even though you’re playing with some of DC’s baddest men and women in DC Lego Super-Villains, it sounds like you’re actually doing some good…
Here’s the story set-up, from publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s announcement:
In 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.
Players will be able to make a “completely customizable” super-villain and team up with other baddies to “foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.” Like most LEGO games during the campaign, players will unlock new abilities, powers and customization options for their custom villain. The announcement for Lego DC Super-Villains reveals that classic DC villains like Lex Luthor’s Superman, Catwoman, The Riddler, Scarecrow, Cheetah, Solomon Grundy, Gorilla Grodd, Deathstroke and Darkseid will appear in the game.
