Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is on a roll with new LEGO releases. Today, the company announced new LEGO Batman and Knight Rider expansion packs for their augmented reality and toys-to-life game, LEGO Dimensions.

LEGO Dimensions will receive two expansions based on the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie and a unique fun pack based on the 80s action classic, Knight Rider. The release of all three expansion packs will coincide with the release of the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie on 10 February, 2017.

The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack will provide a  story-driven experience featuring iconic DC Comics characters. It will feature six levels and a brand new LEGO Gateway that will allow players to build the Batcomputer on the Dimensions Toy Pad. The Story pack will include Batgirl and Robin minifigures and a Batwing vehicle. The Batwing will be a 3-in-1 vehicle which means that it can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder, as well as the Bat-Tank.

This pack will take players through the LEGO Batman movie. They will have to team up with Batgirl and Robin to fight off the Joker and his team of villains. The Story Pack will also give players access to the new LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World, which has its own Battle Arena and split-screen gameplay for up to four players.

Batgirl can use her Batarang and her stealth abilities to stay undetected and reach high-security areas. Robin, on the other hand, boasts incredible agility and dive skills. Additionally, Robin can transform into Nightwing which will give him a fighting edge.
