WB Games and TT Games have announced an official video game adaptation of the upcoming sequel, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame will launch on Feb. 26, 2019 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch (physical Switch version on 3/26/19). The film is out Feb. 8, 2019.

While the game will be based on events from The LEGO Movie 2, it will feature characters and events from the original LEGO movie as well. Over 100 characters will be playable from both movies. Budding Master Builders will be able to rebuild Brickburg, changing the landscape and rebuilding roads and structures. Building special LEGO objects will unlock new areas and rewards.

“Packed with fan-favorite and exciting new characters, mysterious locations and action from both the sequel and the original blockbuster The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is a wild adventure for kids to explore,” said Arthur Parsons, TT Games Studios.

The LEGO Movie 2 (not yet rated) reunites the cast of Chris Pratt (Emmet), Elizabeth Banks (Lucy/Wyldstyle), and Will Arnett (scene-stealing LEGO Batman). It takes place five years after they saved their world from Lord Business (Will Ferrell). Now LEGO Duplo have invaded Brickburg. The heroes will have to travel to far off worlds to save their own.

The video game sequel has not yet been rated by the ESRB. The original was rated E10+ for Cartoon Violence and Comic Mischief. The original The LEGO Movie was rated PG.

First LEGO Overwatch Figure is Omnic Bastion

Posted by | News | No Comments

Earlier this year Activision Blizzard announced a partnership with LEGO to produce special Overwatch LEGO figures. The first of these sets is Omnic Bastion, and it’s available to order now exclusively on the Blizzard Gear store. It will also be available at BlizzCon, which takes place November 2-3 in Anaheim, California.

LEGO Overwatch Omnic Bastion is a large, buildable Bastion figure containing 182 pieces. Curiously, Bastion is featured in his orange Omnic Crisis skin rather than his default gray.

Once built the figure stands five inches tall, including the base. Bastion can swivel his waist and move his arms. Sadly, the LEGO Bastion doesn’t transform into a turret.

Bastion’s flying sidekick Ganymede is also included as a small buildable figure. The set has a recommended age of 10+ and costs $25.00.

A full launch of LEGO Overwatch figures is coming soon.

Overwatch is currently in the middle of its Halloween Terror 2018 event. The seasonal event features the return of Junkenstein’s Revenge and adds two new heroes to the fan-favorite mode – Brigitte and Tracer.

New loot boxes add new skins, emotes and highlight intros. The six new legendary skins are Banshee Moira, Bride Sombra, Enchanted Armor Pharah, Jack-O’-Lantern Wrecking Ball, Slasher: 76 Soldier 76, and Swamp Monster Doomfist. You can also find previous years’ Halloween loot and purchase them at a discount.

The Halloween event ends October 31.

Posted by | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One | No Comments

At this point Warner Bros. has their LEGO superhero DLC schedule figured it out – simply tie it into upcoming movies. It worked with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, and they’re banking on it for the upcoming LEGO DC Super-Villains, launching on October 16 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

The Season Pass includes six Level Packs and four Character Packs. Both Aquaman and Shazam are getting two separate level packs, modeled after their respective upcoming solo films (Aquaman in Dec., Shazam April 2019). The other two level packs are inspired from animated series Batman: The Animated Series and Young Justice.

The Character Packs include all the DC heroes and villains from various WB shows like Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow, as well as additional characters from DC films and the comic Justice League Dark.

The Season Pass is included in the Deluxe Edition of DC Super-Villains ($74.99). It provides immediate access to the first Character Pack, the Super-Villains TV Series Character Pack. The physical version also includes a Lex Luthor Superman LEGO minifigure. The digital version instead adds the Justice League Dark Character Pack. The Season Pass will also be available as a separate purchase for $14.99.

In LEGO DC Super-Villains players will create their own unique super villain with their own custom powers and costume. They’ll join forces with iconic DC super-villains for an original story designed exclusively for the game.

The LEGO games remain at the forefront of family-friendly gaming, with a wealth of content, easy controls, humorous writing, and local cooperative multiplayer.

LEGO DC Super-Villains launches October 16 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. It has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
