Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the story trailer for LEGO Dimensions, which merges physical LEGO brick building with interactive console game play. The game features an original story that combines characters and worlds from 14 entertainment brands including DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago, Back to the Future, Scooby-Doo, Doctor Who, Jurassic World, and more.
In the game, an ancient planet at the center of the LEGO Multiverse is inhabited by Lord Vortech, an evil mastermind who has summoned characters from a variety of LEGO worlds to help him find the building bricks of LEGO civilization. Some characters have agreed while others have rebelled, and only the combined powers of the greatest LEGO heroes can stop him.
When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various LEGO worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, and The LEGO Movie are swept away. LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf, and LEGO Wyldstyle team up to save their friends, and soon realize that Lord Vortech is also summoning villains from across different LEGO worlds. As the boundaries between worlds break and unexpected characters meet, the heroes must travel through space and time to stop Lord Vortech before the vortexes destroy all of LEGO humanity.
