    WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT, TT GAMES, THE LEGO GROUP
    AND DC ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCE
    LEGO® DC SUPER-VILLAINS
    It’s Good to Be Bad in the First-Ever, Villain Focused LEGO Game
    All-New Ability to Create and Play as Your Own DC Super-Villain Brings
    with an Outrageously Fun and Original Story Co-Written with DC
    Player Customization to the Heart of the Story

    Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment today announced LEGO® DC Super-Villains, the first LEGO game to put players at the center of a villain-centric adventure packed with favorite locations and characters from across the DC universe. For the first time, a LEGO game is giving players the ability to create and play as their own DC Super-Villain throughout the game. Their character becomes the center of the story, while teaming up with an iconic variety of villains to adventure through the hilarious and original story written in collaboration with DC. LEGO® DC Super-Villains will be available October 16, 2018 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One X®, Nintendo Switch™, and PC.

    “LEGO DC Super-Villains provides players a fun and humorous way to cause mischief by unleashing their DC Super-Villain’s sinister powers and amusing abilities,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “With an unprecedented amount of customization options to choose from, players can create and customize their character at the start of the story, unlocking new powers and abilities as they progress through the funniest LEGO game to date.”

    “The original story in LEGO DC Super-Villains flips the DC universe upside down as players embark on an unforgettable adventure starring memorable villains set across notable DC locations,” said Ames Kirshen, Vice President, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment. “DC’s roster of iconic Super-Villains is unmatched and fans will love teaming up with The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor and a host of others to save Earth from a greater evil.”

    “LEGO DC Super-Villains gives players a new way to play with their favorite DC characters with a splash of light-hearted, villainous antics,” said Sean McEvoy, VP Digital Games, The LEGO Group. “Players will enjoy exploring the expansive DC universe in the way only a LEGO game can deliver.”

    In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customizable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.

    At the beginning of the campaign, players can create their own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode. As players progress, they will unlock new abilities, powers and can continue to customize their character to take on the evil threat. Friends and family can join story mode at any time with the fun, two-player, local co-op experiences where players can team up in epic boss fights.

    A Deluxe Edition of the game, featuring the main game content, Season Pass content and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack, is now available for pre-order. An exclusive LEGO minifigure, Lex Luthor Superman, also comes with the physical version of the Deluxe Edition, while digital consumers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack with their Deluxe Edition.

    So, it looks like this game is going to be a video game version of the Forever Evil comic book story from the New 52 period.

    While I do feel that this will be a fun game (and I'm more than likely going to pick this up when it comes out, although I'm not sure if I'll get it Day 1 or wait until either a B2G1 sale at Target or Black Friday), I'm not really that impressed with the trailer, as the focus is definitely more towards spotlighting Joker, Harley, and Reverse Flash causing chaos rather than dropping hints of the "Justice Syndicate" storyline (which could have easily have featured scenes involving Lex Luthor and Deathstroke).

    In terms of characters:

    1. I wonder if we'd eventually do get a couple of heroes being playable in the form of Batman and Cyborg (aka the heroes that were still around when Forever Evil was taking place).

    2. Here's hoping one of the characters in the TV Series DLC pack is the Wentworth Miller version of Captain Cold, as not only is he a fun character, but also because he's one of the more iconic Flash villains (and it does appear that there's going to be a lot of Flash representation here alongside Batman and Superman).

    Hmm. I'm really behind on the LEGO games, but this looks like fun. You don't get villain centered video games every day.
