Can’t wait for DC’s Aquaman film? LEGO DC Super Villains has you covered with the first of two DLC packs, hitting next week.
I hear you can talk to fish
Aquaman is setting up to be a strange movie. On the one hand it’s still tracking for a pretty low opening. On the other, early critical response has been very positive. Will that word of mouth and selection of reviews be enough to give Warner Bros a DC-movie win That’s tough to tell, but what’s a little more certain is the first batch of DLC for LEGO’s DC Super Villains video game.
The pack plays off of Aquaman in a big way, offering not just a simple smattering of characters. Instead, fans get a full mini-campaign to go along with those virtual mini-figures. December the 4th brings the fist pack, with the second one arriving on January 8th.
Both packs go together, offering (in total) six levels of play and four character packs.
The action-packed Aquaman movie packs offer players the chance to control DC’s legendary pair, Aquaman and Mera, in the underwater kingdom of Atlantis. It’s up to them to lead their people against Aquaman’s brother, Orm, who seeks to unite the seven kingdoms against the surface world. The packs expand the main game’s already large roster of over 150 iconic DC characters. The first pack adds new playable characters Aquaman (Gladiator), Black Manta (Movie), Mera, Orm (Gladiator), King Nereus and Queen Atlanna. The second pack adds new playable characters Aquaman (Movie), Vulko, Trench Creature, Murk, Brine King and Orm (Movie).
The packs are both part of LEGO DC Super Villains’ Season Pass, which is available separately or included in the Deluxe Edition. As you might imagine, the Aquaman packs are both available separately as well, though you’ll have to wait for that a’la carte option.
While the first pack will be made ready for Season Pass holders this coming month, waiters will have to hold out till the launch date of pack #2, January 8th, to get either one.
