LEGO Dimensions is described as “an all-new entertainment experience that breaks the rules of traditional gaming to merge physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay in a manner only imaginable in the world of LEGO games.” Warner Bros. is featuring various properties, including DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, The LEGO Movie, The Wizard of Oz, LEGO Ninjago, Back to the Future, and more.
The LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, priced at $99.99, is what players will start with.

Warner Bros. will release additional packs in 2015 and 2016. Level Packs, Team packs, and Fun packs offer “new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as compelling game content with new mission-based levels and unique in-game abilities.” Each expansion pack is based on well-known properties.
