It feels like just yesterday that I reported on the newly announced seventh wave of expansion packs for Warner Bros.’ Toys-to-reality game, LEGO Dimensions. With that said, I am pleased to tell you that all of those packs are officially available to purchase!
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have finally released the entire seventh wave to the public. The news comes just in time for the South African release of J.K. Rowling’s newest magical film, and, of course, Christmas!
Wave 7 includes six highly anticipated expansions packs for the LEGO and video game hybrid. Leading the pack, like the little hedgehog he is, is the Sonic The Hedgehog Level Pack. Together with Sonic, we also have Newt Scamander and the Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them Story Pack. Obviously, they are not alone! Along with Sonic and Newt, you can find the Gremlins, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and Adventure Time. There is, quite literally, something for everyone.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Story Pack Provides a Complete Movie-Based Gameplay Experience with Six Action-Packed Levels and an Original LEGO Gateway Build
In a statement released by local distributors, Ster Kinekor, we now know that all packs feature their own Battle Arenas. These allow for multiplayer games in competitive split-screen environments for up to four players. It also states that all LEGO minifigures included in the expansion packs come with golden Toy Tags. These golden Toy Tags unlock a free play Adventure World for each representative brand; as well as a Battle Arena.
Players can explore Adventure Worlds for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Sonic The Hedgehog, Gremlins, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and Adventure Time. All Battle Arenas features four game modes including Capture the Flag, Objective, Base Bash, and Tick, Tag, Boom! It is confirmed that all arenas have their own traps, defences, and special power pickups.
All LEGO Dimensions packs are summarised below.
