There’s A Backstory Behind Lego Dimensions, And Here It is


Lego Dimensions doesn’t seem like the kind of thing where you really need a backstory. There’s all these characters from various separate properties, they’re Lego figures, and they’re appearing together in the same world. It’s interesting enough that no one cares how it happened. It just DID, right?

WB Interactive showed off a new trailer today that reveals there is, in fact, a narrative to this game that gives a reason as to why Batman and Gandalf would be appearing in Oz. A villain named Lord Voltech will be at the center of Lego Dimensions and his schemes to conquer all worlds will be the reason why they’re criss-crossing.

In the game, there is an ancient planet at the center of the LEGO Multiverse inhabited by an evil mastermind, Lord Vortech. It is said that he who controls the Foundational Elements that this planet is built upon, controls all of the Multiverse. Lord Vortech has vowed to be that ruler, summoning characters from a variety of LEGO worlds to help him find these building bricks of LEGO civilization. Some have agreed, others have rebelled, and only the combined powers of the greatest LEGO heroes can stop him.

You have to wonder now, what is the backstory behind Disney Infinity? Did a power-hungry supervillain named Count Blargulargh build a machine that merged all worlds under the Disney umbrella together so he could ultimately merge with infinity? Is that why Goofy and Stitch and Buzz Lightyear are skipping around together? Dunno, maybe.
