Skylanders Trap Team looks to be the next big innovation in the Skylanders franchise that will allow players to trap NPC characters and villains and play as them. Activision has released a video that showcases fifteen minutes of gameplay of the upcoming title.
Skylanders Trap Team will add an entirely new dynamic to the Skylanders universe that will allow players to utilize Trap Masters to capture and play as NPC characters including villains and even sheep. Not every NPC character is playable but when you come across one you will know. As an added bonus Trap Masters do extra damage to characters that can be caught.
In the video below, it showcases an early level which one can assume is the first level as it has several tutorial aspects including showing players how to trap a character. The level itself is titled Soda Springs and is named after the fact there are all different kinds of Soda strewn throughout the level and can be used to open doors among other things. It also shows off several new features in Skylanders Trap Team, so fans will want to check it out. The video is narrated by a member of the development team, Lou Studdert. It also showcases the newly announced character, Gusto.
Skylanders Trap Team is set to release on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U, Xbox One and Playstation 4 on October 5th in North America.
