Based on Ghostbusters, DC Comics, Doctor Who, Back to the Future, and LEGO Ninjago, five new expansions packs were released today for LEGO Dimensions on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii U.

All expansion packs can be used interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game, and any expansion pack character can unlock the corresponding Adventure World of the same brand.

Here’s what you need to know about each of the expansion packs:
