LEGO Dimensions 2016 & 2017 Packs Include Ghostbusters, Harry Potter, Sonic & Much More
Warner Bros and TT Games announced today that 16 new entertainment properties are coming to LEGO Dimensions for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U in “2016 and beyond.”
First up, on September 30, the Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack will all be released.
Then, releasing in product waves up until summer 2017, LEGO Dimensions will receive expansion packs based on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The LEGO Batman Movie, The Goonies. Sonic The Hedgehog, Teen Titans Go!, LEGO City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, Beetlejuice, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.
“All expansion packs provide players with continued compatibility to use everything from waves 1-9 interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game,” Warner Bros adds. “And no new starter pack is required, as all new packs will simply enhance the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack game and work with the existing LEGO Toy Pad.”
Warner Bros talked about the Ghostbusters and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them packs:
The Ghostbusters Story Pack, based on the upcoming film, will provide a complete movie-based gameplay experience with six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks that allow players to build Zhu’s Chinese Restaurant atop the LEGO Toy Pad. It will also come with a buildable Abby Yates LEGO minifigure with Proton Blaster and 3-in-1 buildable Ecto-1 which can be rebuilt into the Ectozer and The PerfEcto. The pack unlocks “Rip,” a new Toy Pad mode allowing players to tear open an alternate universe. In this mirror world, players have the ability to solve puzzles and affect objects and other items in the primary universe. And like all gold-tag minifigures purchased, Abby Yates provides access to a new themed Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena.
The Ghostbusters Story Pack is just the first of this new exciting pack type, with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, based on the highly anticipated theatrical release, still to come later this year. The LEGO DIMENSIONS packs will be the exclusive construction toy offering this holiday for the exciting expansion of J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World.
LEGO Dimensions will also be adding four-player split-screen competitive Battle Arenas, which are unlocked by purchasing minifigures in the wave 6 through 9 expansion packs. Each Battle Arena has four different gameplay modes.
