Multiplayer 'Lego Worlds' will hit PC and consoles in February 2017

LEGO Worlds: Console Announcement Trailer
If you’ve been waiting for a Lego game that puts more emphasis on creativity and building than it does on telling a silly story, you’re in for a treat: Lego Worlds is coming next year to consoles and PC, and it aims to be the ultimate sandbox for brick builders.

“In Lego Worlds, players will go on an exciting journey to become a Master Builder in an open-ended world made completely of Lego-built environments,” said TT Games head of production Jonathan Smith in the official announcement. “Whether customizing characters, exploring in vehicles, building structures, or discovering an expansive range of items, characters, and creatures throughout the worlds, there’s the freedom to create anything imaginable.”

If the game’s title sounds familiar, that’s because the game is actually already available for $15 on Steam’s Early Access program. Recent updates for that version of the game added split-screen cooperative options, as well as additional bricks, quests, characters, and vehicles.

Online multiplayer will allow people to enter other players’ creations, although due to the family-friendly nature of the title, we’re guessing this particular feature will be heavily monitored by TT Games.

Lego Worlds expands our Lego video game franchise with a new experience that embodies all the fun of physical Lego brick building,” added Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment president David Haddad.

Much like Minecraft, Lego Worlds allows players to use “brick-by-brick” editing tool to create their own custom creations, altering not only buildings, but also the terrain itself. Players can also import both “classic” and more modern Lego sets to give their creations a particular theme. Creations thus far are pretty remarkable, including a futuristic space station, a coral reef, and a lighthouse by the beach.

Lego Worlds officially launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on February 21, 2017. A special “Agents” downloadable content (DLC) pack will initially release as a PlayStation exclusive.

After two months of waiting, DC's Black Adam will finally join the battle on MultiVersus later this week. And in a shock to fans (literally and figuratively) he's also bringing Arcade Mode to the game with him.

Warner Bros. Games and Player First Games released a teaser trailer on Twitter last night of a 1980s-style TV commercial showing a MultiVersus arcade machine and Black Adam showing up on the screen in pixel form to the sound of thunder before the lightning causes a blackout. As shown in the banner for Season 1, the Black Adam that will come to the game is based on the comic books, not the DCEU version played by Dwayne Johnson in the latest film, Black Adam.

Gotham Knights Knighthood guide: how to unlock the glider and other traversal abilities
Batgirl gliding in Gotham Knights.

There are numerous ways to get around the city in Gotham Knights, but the most efficient method is locked behind a separate progression system called Knighthood. Early on, players can utilize the Batcycle, grappling hook, fast travel, or even travel on foot to get around. While these methods work just fine, you'll want to gain access to the enhanced traversal system by reaching Knighthood. These different means of getting around look different across the four playable characters. For instance, Batgirl can glide, while Robin utilizes a teleporting device created by Justice League technology.

But how exactly does Knighthood work and what do you need to do to unlock the new traversal abilities? Here's what you need to know.
