Up to four players can battle it out cooperatively or competitively in four different games modes spanning 21 arenas. The game types include: Objective, Capture the Flag, Tick Tag Boom, and Base Bash. Each mode offers a different style of play that can keep things diverse and interesting.

Each level includes various traps, such as spikes on the ground or giant bombs, with some being level themed, such as daggers rain from above in the Adventure Time level. Implementing traps forces players to not only be aware of other players but also the level itself.

Taking heavy influence from games such as Super Smash Bros. and All-Star Battle Royale, Lego Dimensions Battle Arena offers fans of the Lego Dimension franchise to pit their favourite characters against each other in what could be a fun title.

Lego Dimensions is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii U.
