Fellow Master Builders,

The LEGO Worlds are in peril: Evil is once again terrorising the different dimensions and their Master Builders!

Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle are traveling across the LEGO Dimensions in order to rescue their fellow compatriots and stop an Ancient Evil from taking control of all the realms.

They are asking you to help them.

Playing as each of the trio (among others), you travel to the world of Oz, Back to the Future, Gotham and others, smashing, building and editing the landscape in order to achieve your goal.

The latest RPG game from the LEGO video game franchise follows the style of Skylanders and Disney Infinity: players will be able to add or unlock characters and levels through the purchase of additional packs such as the “Back to the Future Pack” or the “Doctor Who Pack” which includes a character token like Nintendo’s “Amiibo” and a vehicle token.

The release date for the American market is September 27, 2015 with the European market having access from September 29, 2015.

An official synopsis has yet to be published anywhere I could find it, but on IMDb.com someone has added the below:

There is an ancient planet at the center of the LEGO Multiverse inhabited by an evil mastermind, Lord Vortech. It is said that he who controls the Foundational Elements that this planet is built upon, controls all of the Multiverse. Lord Vortech has vowed to be that ruler, summoning characters from a variety of LEGO worlds to help him find these building bricks of LEGO civilization. Some have agreed. 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. To save their friends, Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle bravely jump into the vortex. As they journey to locations beyond their wildest imaginations in search of their friends, they soon realize that Lord Vortech is summoning villains from across different LEGO worlds to help him gain control. As his power grows, worlds mix, unexpected characters meet and all boundaries are broken. Our heroes must travel through space and time to rescue their friends before the vortexes destroy all of LEGO humanity.

I’m going to continue my search for the official storyline and will update this when I find it.

Regardless, from the released information this game is very much LEGO’s two cents in the current video game / collectibles mash up that is the current theme across all the major consoles.

I know I for one am keen to see Marty McFly and Doc in this game along with Scooby-Doo and the Gang.

So get creating, building and saving fellow Master Builders, I’ll surely see you in there!
