© Warner Bros. Xbox favourite Lego Dimensions has just been expanded once again with the release of a brand new Midway Arcade Level Pack along with DC Comics Superman, Aquaman and Ghostbusters Stay Puft Fun Packs. The great thing about these new additions is that they add yet another facet to this highly innovative game series, while at the same time having buildable characters. What’s more, rebuildable 3-in-1 vehicles and gadgets that offer extra gameplay options provide even more entertainment value.

Perhaps one of the most appealing aspects of the Lego Dimensions series is the way that players can enjoy a dynamic mash-up multiverse. Once you’ve built the characters, which are assembled in time honoured Lego brick tradition, and you’ve written the toy tag to the special Lego Dimensions base, you’re free to jump in and out of anywhere in this multi-faceted Xbox experience.

While the ingenious nature of Lego Dimensions is bang-up-to-date, anyone interested in retro games will also love the Midway Arcade Level Pack in particular. This comes with a buildable Gamer Kid minifigure and G-6155 Spy Hunter vehicle, along with a natty Arcade Machine model. All three are fully playable in the game and, as part of the package, you get to unlock an amazing retro world of more than 20 classic arcade games.

Of course, Lego Dimensions might be partly aimed at children but there is plenty in this latest wave of packs to entice the more mature gamer. Players can activate Gamer Kid’s Stealth, Laser, Speed, Invulnerability, and Super Strength abilities to solve puzzles and battle enemies. When things get dangerous, players can boost their gameplay with the G-6155 Spy Hunter which can be rebuilt into The Interdiver and Aerial Spyhunter, or the Arcade Machine which rebuilds into the 8-Bit Shooter and The Pixilator Pod for upgraded in-game abilities. Gamer Kid also unlocks the Midway Arcade Adventure World to provide players with additional open-world gameplay.
