It’s been rumoured for a while and was confirmed with a tease yesterday. Now we have our first brief look at the upcoming LEGO DC Super-Villains game.

Yep, they’re letting the baddies run wild in this LEGO game, led, of course, by The Joker. Although we’re starting to wonder about Hot Dog guy – he’s popping up everywhere. Could he actually be a nefarious criminal mastermind?

Your part will be trying to out-villain them all, unleashing mischievous antics and wreaking havoc in a story that was written in collaboration with DC Comics.

The rest of the brief? Set in an open world within the DC Universe, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to their counterparts from a parallel universe, who have proclaimed themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Sometimes, it takes more than a superhero to get the job done and it’s up to the player and a crazed group of misfits to uncover the intentions of Earth’s new, strange, wannabe superheroes. Joined by renowned super-villains: The Joker, Harley Quinn, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, Killer Frost, Sinestro and countless others from the Injustice League, you’ll get to set out on an epic adventure to ensure their villainy remains unrivaled.

LEGO DC Super-Villains is currently set for an October 16 release on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.

Update: We got our eager hands on it at E3 – check out our rundown here.
