It has been teased, "leaked," and now it is official that LEGO DC Super-Villains is going to be a thing and is coming for our PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on October 16th. Not to steal them, but for us to play and enjoy as the next title from TT Games set in the DC Universe. There have been a whole lot of these, for sure, but as is usually the case, LEGO DC Super-Villains will look to mix it all up a bit and give us something to be excited for with the usual gameplay. Or not so usual gameplay here as it looks like we will not need to be the hero anymore and are out to do what villains do best. That is, unless there is some other tale being told in the background for the Warner Bros. IP…
While I am sure the basic of gameplay will stay the same for LEGO DC Super-Villains as we have seen in the past title, we will be playing on the side of the villains here and will be teaming up with them. All as a "newcomer" that we get to customize and alter along the way. So, we will not be playing a base version of any of the current DC villains but our own. We will just be teaming up with them for fun and to collect all of those LEGO bits out there. All because the good guys have gone away and the mice will play. That and to thwart a bigger villain trying to do what we are doing for their own whims.
LEGO DC Super-Villains is currently available for pre-order and will have different editions for us to pick up. There is also a Season Pass of content that will be coming with one of these editions and will be bringing a TV Series Character Pack early for those who pick it up early. If you go with a physical copy of the game, you will be able to pick up a Lex Luthor Superman LEGO Minifigure. If you go with a digital version you will be getting a Justice League Dark Character Pack with your purchase. That seems like the better deal to me.

Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and DC Entertainment today announced LEGO DC Super-Villains, the first LEGO game to put players at the center of a villain-centric adventure packed with favorite locations and characters from across the DC universe.

In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customizable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.
At the beginning of the campaign, players can create their own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode. As players progress, they will unlock new abilities, powers and can continue to customize their character to take on the evil threat.
