In the new ‘Build Rebuild’ trailer today, Warner Bros and TT Games revealed that LEGO Dimensions allows every vehicle and gadget to be physically built and rebuilt in three different ways with entirely different abilities.
Once you earn a building achievement, in-game instructions will show you how to use the same LEGO bricks to rebuild vehicles and gadgets into different objects that provide all-new abilities:
For example, the LEGO vehicle bricks that come in the Starter Pack can be used to build the LEGO Batmobile that enables players to activate accelerator switches. The Batmobile can be rebuilt and transformed into the LEGO Batblaster which adds Sonar Smash, a sonar gun that has the ability to break LEGO sonar bricks. The vehicle can then be rebuilt again as the LEGO Sonic Batray which adds a special attack in the form of a missile barrage.
Players can fuse an upgraded vehicle to the LEGO Toy Tag, enabling them to take it and any new abilities with them to a friend’s game or wherever they’d like to play. Players can do this with every vehicle and every gadget from every pack.
In addition to The Lords of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago, and Back to the Future worlds, LEGO Dimensions will also include gameplay from The Simpsons, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, Portal, Jurassic World, Midway Arcade, LEGO Chima, and Scooby-Doo!.
For gamers that want to customize their LEGO Dimensions experience, Level Packs, Team Packs, and Fun Packs based on these fourteen brands will provide new buildable characters, vehicles and gadgets, as well as compelling game content with mission-based levels and unique in-game abilities. All expansion packs will provide players the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game.
LEGO Dimensions launches on September 27 in North America and September 29 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
