So far the vast majority of the reveals surrounding the upcoming Lego Dimensions have revolved around the phenomenal franchises/ properties that are being represented in the expansion packs, which has certainly been a great way to get buy in from a community that is becoming more and more saturated by the toys to life genre. However it’s left me wondering what we’ll be able to expect from the actually in game story that is featured in the starter pack. Well, we’re finally getting an answer to that question…
When a new threat emerges, heroes from different worlds go on a journey together to save the LEGO multiverse!
LEGO Dimensions features an original story that combines characters and worlds from 14 of the most popular entertainment brands including 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.
In the game, there is an ancient planet at the center of the LEGO Multiverse inhabited by an evil mastermind, Lord Vortech. It is said that he who controls the Foundational Elements that this planet is built upon, controls all of the Multiverse. Lord Vortech has vowed to be that ruler, summoning characters from a variety of LEGO worlds to help him find these building bricks of LEGO civilization. Some have agreed, others have rebelled, and only the combined powers of the greatest LEGO heroes can stop him.
When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The LEGO Movie are swept away. To save their friends, LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and LEGO Wyldstyle journey to locations beyond their wildest imaginations, and they soon realize that Lord Vortech is summoning villains from across different LEGO worlds to help him gain control. As his power grows, worlds mix, unexpected characters meet and all boundaries are broken. Our heroes must travel through space and time to rescue their friends before the vortexes destroy all of LEGO humanity.
Launching September 27, 2015, LEGO Dimensions will be available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.
