Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham was launched in South Africa earlier this week for all major game consoles and for Windows PC. In this version, Batman joins forces with stars from DC Comics in an effort to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth.
“Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is without a doubt this year’s ultimate Super Hero game for all ages,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games Publishing. “From free-roam gameplay, to flying Lego big figures and exploring Lantern Worlds with DC Comics’ most amazing characters, the fun and possibilities in Lego Batman 3 are endless.
In Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, the Caped Crusader joins forces with the super heroes of the DC Comics universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. Using the power of the Lantern Rings, Brainiac shrinks worlds to add to his twisted collection of miniature cities from across the universe and the greatest Super Heroes and most cunning Super Villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to stop him.
Players will unlock and play more than 150 characters, including members of the Justice League and the Legion of Doom, as well as Lego big figures such as Arkillo, Atrocitus and many more, each with their own gadgets and abilities.
