Just in time before the New York Comic Con kicks in next week, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has just released a new LEGO DC Super-Villains gameplay video clip that highlights some of the things that you can expect from DC’s greatest baddie. Adding to the huge roster of playable characters that were revealed recently, we now have a glimpse of how the ruler of Apokolips will be like in this latest LEGO-inspired video game.
In this clip, you’ll see some of Darkseid’s in-game abilities such as flight, super strength, energy projection and use of alien technology. Brought to life by the haunting voice of Michael Ironside, Darkseid is bent in conquering the world using the nefarious Anti-Life Equation. The only question is how will our villainous heroes will be able to stop him.
Other than Ironside, the LEGO DC Super-Villains features a stellar voice-over cast, including Mark Hamill (The Joker), Kevin Conroy (Batman), Fred Tatasciore (Clayface, Doomsday, Killer Croc), Gina Torres (Superwoman), Brandon Routh (Shazam), Gilbert Gottfried (Mister Mxyzptlk), Mark Rolston (Deathstroke), and Scott Porter (Aquaman), among many others. And if you will be attending the New York Comic Con next week from October 4 to 7, be sure to drop by the DC Booth (#SC01) to have a firsthand experience on playing the LEGO DC Super-Villains. This latest LEGO video game offering from TT Games will be available across major gaming platforms (Playstation, Xbox, Switch and PC) starting October 16.
