A new trailer has dropped for LEGO DC Super-Villains from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment , which coms out next week on October 16th. This game shifts the focus to the bad guys of the DCU, when it falls upon them to save the day in a world without superheroes. At the heart of the story is a player-controlled, completely customisable villain with their own signature super power.
The official press release provides a synopsis of the game:
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’. However, legendary DC Super-Villains, including The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, Killer Frost and countless others, discover that the Justice Syndicate may not be as heroic as they claim to be. Led by each player’s customizable super-villain character, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to stop these phony super heroes and save the world… so that they can finally rule it themselves.
The plot seems to be based on Forever Evil, which pitted Lex Luthor and several DC Villains against Earth Three’s Crime Syndicate of America. It also seems to have elements of Justice League: The Darkseid War, with Darkseid and several other of Jack Kirby’s Fourth World characters – including Mister Miracle!
There is also a Deluxe Edition of the game that bundles in the Season Pass, which includes all DLC content for the game. There will be a number of character packs based on the CW TV shows, DCEU films, and a Justice League Dark pack. There will be also be DLC packs with added levels based on the upcoming Aquaman and Shazam! movies as well as other DC properties.
The game hits stores on October 16th, and will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
