After catching a glimpse on all of the DC characters that will be included in LEGO DC Super-Villains video game, TT Games Developers Phil and Matt shares some of the new things to expect from the upcoming video game. Playing through the Gorilla City level, Phil and Matt demonstrates how things work in the world of LEGO DC Super-Villains.
If you recall, we already featured a 19-minute extended gameplay of LDCSV when it was shown in Gamescom 2018 at Germany last August. The said gameplay gave us an idea on how the overarching story evolved, and the different various customization of the player’s avatar aptly named as Rookie.
In this latest Gorilla City gameplay video, Phil and Matt highlights certain details about the new minifigure character designs such as those from the DC Rebirth re-launch. The Gorilla City gameplay video also showed the usual LEGO video game staples such as puzzle solving, the use of specific abilities to do specialized tasks (I love how the Reverse Flash’s speed can come in handy allowing access to the Speed Force and Luthor’s X-ray ability revealing mechanical parts behind walls), building certain in-game structures, kicking some minifigure baddies and a dash of healthy LEGO humor. Yeah, give it LEGO and TT Games in coming up with a LEGO banana and use it as battering ram.
We also get to see certain mechanics of Boss Fights, in this case with Gorilla Grodd going against Solovar. Phil also revealed additional boss fight levels where you are pitted against some of DC’s notable superheroes, such as Beast Boy and Raven in their own unique arenas, and many more. It is quite exciting to see how these things will turn out actually. It’s not every day that you get to stumble on a video game that allows you to play as the villains in order to thwart the good guys. Given the complexity of the different motives and agendas that each villain has – in this case Luthor going out of his way to recruit Gorilla Grodd, while the latter only wishes to gain control of Gorilla City and snatch it from Solovar – it is interesting to see how the plot thickens throughout the game.
The LEGO DC Super-Villains video game is scheduled to be released on October 16, and comes with a physical Deluxe Version retailing for $74.99. Pre-ordering the Deluxe Version allows you early access to the game’s Season Pass and an exclusive Lex Luthor minifigure.
