E3 2016: Lego Dimensions Series Two Sets Officially Revealed

In news that comes as no surprise to eager fans following the leaks from various retailers and industry sources, we finally have official confirmation of the ‘second year’ of Lego Dimensions packs that are on the way. They will be introducing quite a number of exciting franchises to the already star-studded list of pop-culture icons.

Unlike other games in the Toys to Life genre, owners of the original Lego Dimensions are not required to purchase a new game to access the content. Rather it will all be patched in to the game and made available to players who buy the corresponding packs.

The first wave of Lego Dimensions Series Two new packs launch on September 27th. These will include a new type of Lego Dimensions pack known as a ‘Story Pack’ will launch, which will expand upon the original games plot. The first Story Pack is based around the upcoming Ghostbusters film.

On the same day we will also see the launch of ‘Level Packs’ based on Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible, ‘Team Packs’ based on Adventure Time and Harry Potter and a ‘Fun Pack’ based on The A-Team.

Throughout the course of the 2016-17 we will then see more packs released based on a slew of other IP’s including:

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
  • The Lego Batman Movie
  • The Goonies
  • Teen Titans
  • Lego City: Undercover
  • E.T.
  • Gremlins
  • The Powerpuff Girls
  • Beetlejuice
  • Knight Rider
  • Sonic The Hedgehog

Warner Brothers released the official E3 trailler alongside this announcement, block-full of moments that look like they came right out of my someone’s fanfiction. Expect further details to be revealed at E3 next week.
