By now, it’s been over a month since WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales released LEGO DC Super-Villains, and thus far it’s been a hit like most of its fellow titles that has shared the same general game mechanics all these years. Its current popularity surely lies in having DC baddies front and center this time.
But as a DC game, even with villains as protagonists, the heroes are still there (the Justice League get five bonus levels even). And since they’re present, they can get DLC that’s tailor-made for them, particularly one hero with a movie premiering not long now.
If you think the Aquaman featured in LDCSV is cool enough now, wait until WB-TT rolls out its latest DLC themed after the DCEU Aquaman movie coming out in December. It’ll consist of new levels and costumes to turn Aquaman into the Jason Momoa version, with similar changes to all characters featured in the movie.
For owners of LEGO DC Super-Villains with season passes they can receive the first batch of Aquaman DLC level packs in December 4. After they’ve played this and watched the film next on December 14, the second DLC pack will come January 8, at which time the two DLC packs will also be available bundled.
The Aquaman DLC includes 4 character packs and six playable-level packs all inspired by the film. LDCSV is available now, for Microsoft Windows, Sony PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The action-packed Aquaman movie packs offer players the chance to control DC’s legendary pair, Aquaman and Mera, in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. It’s up to them to lead their people against Aquaman’s brother, Orm, who seeks to unite the seven kingdoms against the surface world. The packs expand the main game’s already large roster of over 150 iconic DC characters. The first pack adds new playable characters Aquaman (Gladiator), Black Manta (Movie), Mera, Orm (Gladiator), King Nereus and Queen Atlanna. The second pack adds new playable characters Aquaman (Movie), Vulko, Trench Creature, Murk, Brine King and Orm (Movie).
