This new wave of expansion packs for LEGO Dimensions are the first to include the brand new Battle Arena feature that adds an exciting new dimension to the game playing experience. For the first time in a LEGO themed video game players can compete with up to four players in split-screen action within special Battle Arenas. Each Battle Arena has four gameplay modes: Capture the Flag, Objective, Base Bash, and Tick, Tag, Boom! Plus each Battle Arena contains its own traps, defenses, and special powers to make it unique. Players can compete in the Battle Arena gameplay modes in multiple configurations including 2 vs 2, 3 vs 1, or individually against one another or the video games AI allowing for family and friends to enjoy LEGO Dimensions together at once. Battle Arenas can be unlocked by obtaining golden tagged LEGO mini-figures that are packaged within LEGO Dimensions Expansion Packs beginning with the newly released sixth wave.
