TT Games has released a full teaser trailer for their new upcoming 2018 comic book title: LEGO DC Super Villains!  The game will release later this year on October 16th and come in both regular and deluxe versions. The new game will explore what happens when the Justice League is gone and the villains of the world take over.

You will play as a custom villain character that you’ll create from the amazing new LEGO game character creator, where you will team up with all the DC Villains you can possibly imagine! You get a brief glimpse of this custom character in the jail cell during the trailer. From the press release:

At the beginning of the campaign, players can create their own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode. As players progress, they will unlock new abilities, powers and can continue to customize their character to take on the evil threat. Friends and family can join story mode at any time with the fun, two-player, local co-op experiences where players can team up in epic boss fights.

The trailer doesn’t show off any gameplay, but does show a whole host off villains from Poison Ivy to the Reverse Flash. The end title sequence also heavily features Darkseid, perhaps as the ring master behind it all. The teasers leading up to this imply a heavy role with the Joker, who is featured pretty heavily in the trailer. From the press release:

In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customizable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.

The game will be available October 16th, and if you preorder the Deluxe Edition you will get access to the TV Series Character Pack which likely is an assortment of characters from the CW & Fox shows. From the press release:

A Deluxe Edition of the game, featuring the main game content, Season Pass content and early access to the DC Super-Villains: TV Series DLC Character Pack, is now available for pre-order.  An exclusive LEGO minifigure, Lex Luthor Superman, also comes with the physical version of the Deluxe Edition, while digital consumers will receive the Justice League Dark DLC Character Pack with their Deluxe Edition.
