A trailer showing the storyline in the upcoming video game series LEGO Dimensions is revealed. Here’s how all the LEGO dimensions collide: DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago, Back to the Future, Scooby-Doo, LEGO Chima, Doctor Who, Jurassic World, Ghostbusters, The Simpsons, Portal, and Midway Arcade. One evil fellow and the 14 most popular LEGO-licensed brands in history. His name is Lord Vortech, and his quest is to control the Multiverse.
This Lord Vortech has a mission. A mission to apprehend “the Foundational Elements this planet is built on.” Of course this is the LEGO planet, and to do so, Vortech will need the vortex portal – the same portal you’ll be getting with your fabulous LEGO Dimensions starter pack later this year. All boundaries will be broken, and both space and time will be broken.
What this trailer should serve to show you is the wide range of brands you’re going to get to play with in the game. This is also the first time you’re seeing the bad guy Lord Vortech – a minifigure that we’re certainly going to need to have as soon as possible.
Watch out for the Riddler riding a Balrog, too. Lots of oddities such as that will be setting your eyeballs on fire soon enough.
This game will be launching on September 27th, 2015 on multiple platforms. You’ll find it on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Wii U systems on day one. Still no word on PC – likely not!
