Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment have officially unveiled LEGO DC Super-Villains, and it looks like a pretty wild ride. It’s the first LEGO game that will allow you to take the reins in a new adventure that centers around the bad guys, with a chance to create and play as your own supervillain throughout the story.
The story follows a plot thread where the Justice League has disappeared all of a sudden without a trace. That leaves Earth without any real protection from the likes of evil, until a new group of heroes called the “Justice Syndicate” step in to try and assist. When villains from the Legion of Doom discover that these heroes may not be who they say they are, things change up significantly. This time around, the villains have to work together to see if they can stop the Syndicate from doing whatever nefarious things they have planned.
With your custom character, you’ll progress through the story and unlock additional abilities and powers to further customize your villain to your liking. You can also have friends and family join in for your co-op story mode dalliances, with two-player and local co-op modes that let you team up to thwart bosses in some explosive matchups. It looks like this is going to be a significantly different departure from the rest of the LEGO titles out there, so it should be a pretty wild ride.
LEGO DC Super-Villains is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch this October 16. Check out the debut trailer below for a glimpse at what’s to come.
