Every character in LEGO Dimensions has a list of fun interactions they have when placed on the toy pad with other characters in game. Usually every character will react to a specific set of things, and it’s up to the writing team and game developers to think of fun and creative things for the character to say. Each character will respond to meeting specific characters in game, collecting a gold brick, meeting a giant big fig character, exiting and entering the game, traveling through a portal to a level or world, fighting enemies, upgrading vehicles and occasionally when two of the same characters are on the portal they will have a funny interaction.
Hidden away in the game files from day one of LEGO Dimensions is a file filled with tons of recorded lines for Lord Vortech, used specifically for when he is in game as an NPC (during boss battles). The file also included a stack of files not used for Lord Vortech, including tons of character interactions and in game responses. We’ve known about this file for sometime, accidentally stumbling upon it when looking for info in the game’s code about Rattman and finding a funny interaction where Vortech actually calls Batman a “Ratman.” But up to this point we haven’t shared the data. Recently it’s been leaked / shared in the community so we thought we’d take the time to actually compile it correctly for fans to listen to instead of everyone trying to access and listen to odd file types.
This information hasn’t exactly been hidden, for some of the community early in the game’s release, these files were quickly found and shared but as time moved on most people have forgotten them. The existence of these files is the strongest evidence yet that some type of playable figure was planned for Lord Vortech, wether or not he is ever released.
The awesome community over at LEGO Dimensions Wiki had already taken the time to list out most of these interactions and lines, but we found a few more they didn’t include and cut them together in a fun short little video for you to watch. These are all original recordings with Gary Oldman recorded for the original release of the game. Some of the lines may have been used in the game and we simply forgot, but for the most part it’s pretty clear that these are the interactions to characters and actions in the game as a playable character.
