Hire a Hero in LEGO Dimensions

LEGO Dimensions recently received a patch update in anticipation of the additional packs launching on November 6th along with adding the trophy/achievements for the Doctor Who Level Pack. It’s also brought a brand new feature to the game dubbed ‘Hire a Hero’.  It seems the awesome guys at TT Games have listened to feedback from people concerned they couldn’t make it past certain areas, simply because they didn’t own the relevant character.

Well now you can part with some hard-earned studs to employ the help of the needed wave one character… but only for 30 seconds! The perfect amount of time to unlock a door or activate a switch, but if you really want to get the best from LEGO Dimensions you will still need certain characters’ abilities to access unique worlds and areas. You can see who has what abilities in-game by checking out the chart which can be accessed when you are near a required section.

You can check out a video of the new feature in action below. Don’t forget the second wave of LEGO Dimensions packs are available this week.
