New Skylanders Expand Game World
Activison today announced new Light and Dark Elements for Skylanders — the first since the original eight the game launched with in 2011.
The new Light and Dark element groupings bring with them new characters, quest packs, villains and zones in the game. Specifically the two new Trap Masters Knight Mare and Knight Light, will be available from 26th December in the special Light and Dark Elemental Quest Packs.
Each pack contains a Trap Master along with a special Trap capable of capturing either Light or Dark villains. They also come with a location piece that unlocks a special level in the game. The Light and Dark Elemental Quest Packs will be available at all major retailers.
The new packs enable players to access new levels in Skylanders Trap Team and trap new villains like the Luminous and Nightshade characters. Also, the new elements reveal additional back story of the Skylanders universe.
“It’s amazing to see how deeply engrossed and fascinated our fans have been with the Skylanders franchise,” said John Coyne, vice president of Consumer Marketing at Activision. “By unveiling new Light and Dark elements and heroes to the Skylanders universe, our fans around the world will have new ways of exploring all the magic, excitement and fun of Skylands.”
The introduction of Light and Dark elements also extends the backstory. “Long ago, Knight Light and Knight Mare were both protectors of Skylands until being sealed off in other realms. Now that they have joined the Trap Masters, Knight Light wields his TraptaniumTM Blade and Knight Mare unleashes her deadly Traptanium Lance to bring down evil everywhere!”
