New LEGO Dimensions expansions will include Harry Potter, Knight Rider, The A-Team, and more

Developer TT Games and publisher Warner Bros Interactive will be releasing a ton of expansion packs for its toy-video game hybrid LEGO Dimensions in the next year. They will include packs based on franchises like Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, Adventure Time, Knight Rider, The A-Team and many more. LEGO Dimensions is available for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Wii consoles.

Warner Bros. Interactive's press release says:

LEGO Dimensions packs based on 16 new entertainment properties will begin launching on September 27, 2016 with the Ghostbusters Story Pack, Adventure Time and Mission: Impossible Level Packs, Harry Potter and Adventure Time Team Packs, and The A-Team Fun Pack. Additional expansion packs based on other highly anticipated films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and The LEGO Batman Movie and wildly popular properties The Goonies, Sonic The Hedgehog, Teen Titans Go!, LEGO City Undercover, Knight Rider, The Powerpuff Girls, Gremlins, Beetlejuice and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial will be released in product waves stretching into summer of next year. All expansion packs provide players with continued compatibility to use everything from waves 1-9 interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game. And no new starter pack is required, as all new packs will simply enhance the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack game and work with the existing LEGO Toy Pad.

Some packs will support the new Battle Arenas feature, which will offer offline multiplayer split-screen features for up to four players:

LEGO minifigures included in the wave 6 through 9 expansion packs will come with special, golden Toy Tags which unlock a Battle Arena within the Free Play Adventure World of the corresponding entertainment brand. Each Battle Arena has four different gameplay modes and comes with its own traps, special powers and interactive environments that make every battle arena unique.
