Sooo intrepid LEGO videogame fans. Welcome to the LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham blog.
First and foremost I have to say that we here at TT Towers are absolutely ecstatic to be developing LEGO Batman 3. When we first found out that we would be returning to the fabulous world of LEGO Batman we were dancing around the office (Luckily there is no footage of this though, it would be most embarrassing!). We've been so busy that we've not even had time to get a blog written until now,so apologies for not writing one sooner. Needless to say that we have been hard at work at our Bat-Computers cramming loads of amazing content into the game.
Anyway, LEGO Batman 3 gives us the opportunity to once again delve into the DC comics archives and bring you guys more amazing LEGO Batman gameplay than ever before. The key words for this game are BEYOND GOTHAM... as we are taking everything that you guys loved with LEGO Batman 1 and 2 and then throwing that into a giant mixing bowl with a whole host of NEW features and content. A dollop of new characters, a sprinkling of new vehicles, a very liberal pouring of new locations, a dash of inventiveness and hey presto...
We are for the first time ever going BEYOND GOTHAM, we are leaving Gotham behind to explore the rich and diverse DC comics universe. Our story brings into play the various lantern worlds, and we will be allowing you to explore these and interact with all of the amazing characters that they bring with them. We are so excited to be taking LEGO Batman into space, uniting him with all of the Justice League members, and teaming them up with the villains of the Legion of Doom.
We are definitely throwing everything, including the kitchen sink into the mix with LEGO Batman 3, and we'll reveal everything about the game in due course.
As I write this we've had a Bat-tastic time out in Los Angeles showing the game at E3, and now we are looking forward to showing more of the game at Comic Con out in San Diego. We are just putting the finishing touches to our panel presentation, and gameplay demos. So far we have revealed a small glimpse of the playable cast of characters, but we have so many more to show you guys. We'll be revealing more at Comic Con, but at the minute we already have an amazing cast just from the characters we have revealed. The thing is... and you'll have to take my word on this... what we have shown thus far is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many things we've not revealed yet that will take your breath away.
We have left no stone unturned in our quest to create the Ultimate Super Hero game for everyone in 2014. Already we have shown that we are taking LEGO Batman into space, and that we have given him and LEGO Robin a host of new suits and gadgets to play with. Additionally Joker, Lex and Cyborg have a vast array of suits and gadgets, and then the remaining cast is littered with amazing fun and inventive mechanics and abilities. We've shown some new gameplay that we have designed into the game, to include classic space shooter gameplay, gravity-less platforming action and virtual world missions. However what we have to show at Comic Con will leave you pinching yourself!
This blog will hopefully go live just before Comic con, so make sure you stay tuned for all the action. We'll be getting a blog up after Comic Con with all the news and action from San Diego, and we'll also make sure that blog readers get an exclusive reveal or two in the coming blog posts... as I know that you guys can keep a secret right :)
So for now, sit back, strap in, and get ready for an absolute blast!!!
