LEGO® Dimensions, LEGO Dimensions, LEGO DIMENSIONS!!!
Ah, it feels SO good to be able to say that name out loud after keeping it a quiet for such a long time.
You see, whilst most of the folks here at Tt towers were finishing up and preparing LEGO Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham for launch, a few of us were secretly working away on LEGO Dimensions and believe me, we’re pulling out all the stops.
So far we’ve announced that the worlds of DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, LEGO Ninjago, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz are coming to LEGO Dimensions. We’ve got plenty more to announce yet and it’s so exciting to see everyone’s reactions to what we have shown so far. My personal favourite hasn’t been announced yet and it’s so difficult to not let something slip out!
LEGO Dimensions is all about breaking the rules of what we know.
You want Wyldstyle driving a DeLorean Time Machine around Metropolis? You got it!
What about Gandalf facing off with The Wicked Witch in The Land of Oz? Sure, you can have that too!
Within LEGO Dimensions there are no restrictions as to which characters can venture forth in to which LEGO universe, and it’s allowed us to create some fantastic levels with a great variety of heroes and villains alike, popping up in some truly bizarre and unexpected locations.
If you’ve ever sat at home wondering how dangerous The Riddler would be riding a Balrog, then now you can find out!
In fact, if you look close enough in our announcement trailer I’m pretty sure you can spot an Oliphaunt roaming around Metropolis, being commandeered by Two-Face who has made a few minor alterations to its war harness!
Not only do we have a whole heap of fantastic brands coming to our game but there’s a brilliantly talented team behind it, fuelled by nothing but passion.
When animators are arguing over who animates specific characters, and environment artists demanding to work on specific levels, then you know you’re working on something truly special that has tapped in to everyone’s creativity and love for videogames.
As a designer, I see LEGO Dimensions all day, every day, and I’m still amazed by its scale, complexity and how wonderful it is to see all of the different characters interacting with one another in surprising ways and crossing over to worlds that they’ve never been to before.
Announcement day was pretty much on par with Christmas Day for anyone involved in the project and was such a huge milestone for us and makes the game feel so much more “real”. The amount of positive reactions, excitement and hype for our game has been brilliant, so thank you all for all your support so far.
Now that LEGO Dimensions has been announced, it’s all hands on deck here at Traveller’s Tales to finish the game and create something new and exciting with the LEGO videogame franchise, whilst maintaining a familiar, welcoming and family-friendly experience. You’re all going to love it, and you can quote me on that!
Keep your eyes focussed on LEGO.com over the coming months for updates, news and some cool screenshots, and get ready to Break The Rules with LEGO Dimensions soon!
