The Dark Knight and his DC Comics Super Friends are heading into space to serve Brainiac some intergalactic justice pie in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, which is scheduled to launch this fall on PC, 3DS, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

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. Now the greatest super heroes and the most cunning villains must unite and journey to different Lantern Worlds to collect the Lantern Rings and stop Brainiac before it’s too late.

The game won’t take place entirely in space though. Other famous locales like the Batcave, the Hall of Justice, and the Justice League Watchtower will appear as explorable environments. Batman’s handy Bat Computer will also run training modules for special race and battle challenges.

In addition to Batman and his crime-fighting sidekick Robin, Beyond Gotham will feature over 150 playable heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe such as the Justice League crew and LEGO big-figs like Killer Croc and Solomon Grundy. These iconic characters will sport new gadgets and abilities, as well as alterations to their classic personality traits due to the power of Brainiac’s mind control and the Lantern rings.

And don’t you worry — there will be plenty of that loveable LEGO video game humor to match the new out-of-this-world storyline. Watch the announcement trailer for a taste.
