Every fancied channelling your inner DC super-villain?
The games sees the world’s protectors, the Justice League, up and vanish leaving the planet in the hands of the Injustice League! Of course, with no super-heroes around it could all be some rather dull villainy. Fear not, you’ll be battling a group of wannabe vigilantes by the name of the Justice Syndicate, as well as graffitiing some walls and striking fear into a few Gotham and Metropolis residents. General bad guy stuff.
Who will I play as on the ‘dark side’ of the DC universe?
It looks like the story will be all about Joker and Lex Luthor, with appearances from favourite super-villainesses Ivy and Harley. Reverse Flash, Deathstroke and Gorilla Grodd all make the teaser poster, and the ultimate bad guy? Looks like Superman super-villain Darkseid will also play a pretty big (and destructive) part.
Why should I be excited?
The question should be, why wouldn’t you be? The LEGO games are a hell of a lot fun and this one looks like a riot. Already the super-villains have been tagging the Twitter feeds of Warner Bros. games and LEGO with boasts of ‘legion of doom rulz’ and poor old Batman has been dubbed ‘The Dork Knight’. The game will be available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC – so something for all LEGO game loving console preferences.
