Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group debuted the first trailer for the upcoming video game Lego Dimensions at Comic-Con, featuring characters from several different franchises. Today we have the official story trailer for the new game, which features even more of your favorite characters in mini-figure form. Some of these iconic characters include Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings, Batman and even Scooby-Doo.

For the first time in any Lego videogame, characters from iconic entertainment franchises join forces and battle in worlds outside of their own. In addition to the game, the Lego Dimensions Starter Pack will include the Lego Toy Pad, which allows players to transport special Lego minifigures and other Lego objects into the game, bricks to build the Lego Gateway, three Lego Minifigures, including Lego Batman from DC Comics, LegoGandalf from The Lord of the Rings and Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie, plus the Lego Batmobile.
In the game, 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. 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.
In addition to the three minifigure heroes used to start the experience, Lego Dimensions will allow gamers to customize their experience with additional expansion packs. Highly collectible Level Packs, Team Packs and Fun Packs will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as compelling game content with new mission-based levels and unique in-game abilities.
