Game Changer: Skylanders Goes Online!
SDCC 2015 kicked off in high gear this year and the fans loved it! Many companies such as Hasbro, Mattel, Disney, Lego, IDW, Funko and of course Activision once again showcased our favorite franchise and announced that we will be getting more Eon Elite figures and another Dark Edition starter pack with the release of the new game.
You can learn more about the dark edition and the Elite’s here. I added some images on the Facebook page thanks to my buddy @ziotec999 showing us some new vehicles and Skylanders. For the first time we finally get to see what Astroblast who is a Light Elemnt Skylander looks like as well as his vehicle and I must say it looks pretty sweet!
We also got a chance to see what Lava Lance Eruptor’s vehicle would like it is called the Burn-Cycle and it is BA!
Also first time images of Big Bubble Pop Fizz and his vehicle the Soda Skimmer as well as newcomer Thrillipede and his vehicle Buzz Wing.
A new combo pack is being introduced it is called a Racing Action Pack. It will include 1 – Skylander, 1 – Vehicle, and 1 – Trophy, which will give Portal Masters the ability to race with villains. As you can see from the image below the Golden Queen Trophy is included in this R.A.P.
One major thing that stuck out like a sore thumb from the images was that we will now be able to race head to head with other players and finally be able to do co-op missions with our friends now that Online Multi-Player Mode has been added.
This is BOOMTASTIC! I have prayed for an online mode as most of you have. Now that we have it I hope that they will bring back PVP mode. It would be awesome to battle other portal masters around the world see who has the best Skylanders. Only time will tell, but I’ll tell you what this has me even more excited to play this game and see what else will happen with this franchise now that we can play online.
Are you excited about the addition of an online gaming experience? Sound off in the comments or on the Facebook page. Until next time I’ll catch you on the SKYSIDE!
