While Disney may be getting out of the toys-to-life game, LEGO is diving even deeper with the release of LEGO Dimensions Wave 6 figures. This new wave adds six brand new expansion packs for players to enjoy. These add new universes and properties to the game, including some of the biggest franchises of all time, such as Harry Potter. Along with this comes the new Battle Arena, which is detailed below.
“Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today the release of six new LEGO Dimensions expansion packs based on the blockbuster franchises: Ghostbusters, Adventure Time, Mission Impossible, Harry Potter and The A-Team,” reads the press release. “This newest wave of expansion packs introduces Battle Arenas, a first for LEGO videogames, and Story Packs which provide a complete movie-based gameplay experience with a fresh LEGO brick building experience.”
“The new Battle Arenas offer competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players. LEGO minifigures included in expansion packs come with special, golden Toy Tags which unlock a Battle Arena within the free play Adventure World of the corresponding entertainment brand. Each Battle Arena has four exciting gameplay modes: Capture the Flag, Objective, Base Bash, and Tick, Tag, Boom!, and comes with its own traps, defenses, and special powers that make every Battle Arena unique. Battles can be played competitively or cooperatively in multiple player configurations including 2 vs 2, 3 vs 1, and individually against the system AI to create fun for the whole family.”
If you haven’t already gotten onto the LEGO Dimensions hype train, now is a good time to join. For a limited time the PS4 version of the LEGO Dimensions starter pack will include an exclusive Supergirl figure for use within the game.
LEGO Dimensions is available now for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U.
