Warner Bros and TT Games seem to be in a generous streak lately, now that they have shared an early inside look at their latest video game offering ahead of its release next week. Thanks to the efforts of Brick to Life, we now have our first look at the LEGO DC Super Villains Hub World which maps out some of the various locations that your rookie super-powered villain will traverse to throughout the game.
As revealed in earlier announcements, the LEGO DC Super Villains Hub World will feature some of the iconic DC comics locations such as the Daily Planet, Metropolis, Smallville and even Apokolips. Watch the video below and try to see if you can identify other places.
Similar to last year’s LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 video game, the LEGO DC Super Villains will allow you to select from a huge roster of DC super-powered villains and to utilize their skill sets as the situation calls for it. You will start as the customizable Rookie at the beginning game, unlocking several DC villains along the way.
Speaking of villains, I find it really cool seeing the Reverse Flash speeding his way through the streets of Metropolis. It’s like playing Sonic the Hedgehog in Sonic Unleashed.
True to form with other LEGO video games, the LEGO DC Super Villains also comes with a host of new puzzles to solve that are tied to a particular skill of a specific character. Towards the end of the video clip, we see Joker and his handy spray paint utility which he uses to unlock a rather nasty problem in the character of Doomsday. I really didn’t expect that in the end.
I’m pretty sure that there are still a handful of surprises waiting within the LEGO DC Super Villains Hub World so be sure to explore them all once you get your own copy of the game on October 16. And if you haven’t ordered your copy yet, you may pre-order the Deluxe Edition to get early access to the game’s Season Pass and an EXCLUSIVE Lex Luthor physical minifigure.
Thanks again to Bricks to Life for sharing this video clip.
