Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today the release of three new expansion packs for LEGO Dimensions, the LEGO toy and videogame hybrid. The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack, Excalibur Batman Fun Pack and Knight Rider Fun Pack broaden the selection of the world’s most popular entertainment brands allowing players to customize their LEGO Dimensions gameplay experience by mixing and matching favourite characters and universes with full compatibility.
Coinciding with the release of the highly anticipated film on which it’s based, The LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack provides a deep, story-driven gameplay experience with iconic DC characters in six puzzle-packed levels and new LEGO Gateway bricks that allow players to build the batcomputer atop the LEGO Toy Pad. This is the only video game experience available for The LEGO Batman Movie, and it comes with buildable Batgirl and Robin minifigures and the 3-in-1 buildable Batwing which can be rebuilt into The Black Thunder and Bat-Tank. Additionally, players can transform their Batman minifigure from the Starter Pack into The LEGO Batman Movie version of Batman when they place him in The LEGO Batman Movie levels within the Story Pack. Gamers can play the complete movie and band together with Batgirl and Robin to fight off The Joker and his team of villains. Batgirl’s batarang, glide and stealth abilities can reach areas with high security access and her Detective Mode is helpful in solving puzzles. Robin’s agility and dive skills also provide Vent Access. Players can also transform Robin into Nightwing, utilizing his deflect moves to bring the fight back to The Joker. Batgirl and Robin provide access to the new The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World with its own unique Battle Arena with competitive split-screen local gameplay for up to four players.
Batman fans can broaden their LEGO Dimensions gameplay with Excalibur Batman from The LEGO Batman Movie. The Fun Pack comes with a buildable Batman minifigure and a 3-in-1 buildable Bionic Steed which can be rebuilt into the Bat-Raptor and Ultrabat for additional in-game abilities. Players can use Batman’s Master Builder and Sword Switching abilities to solve puzzles and take down enemies. Batman also provides access to The LEGO Batman Movie Adventure World and Battle Arena.
The Excalibur Batman Fun Pack will release in Canada first at Walmart and will be available at all retailers on March 28, 2017.
Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. from the classic 80s TV series, Knight Rider, are also coming to LEGO Dimensions.

Jet and Goliath Armored Semi for upgraded in-game powers.
