Currently, the Skylanders franchise is bound with eight very well balanced elements that define a creatures strengths and weaknesses. Activision intends to upset that delicate balance with the release of the first new elements since the franchise’s launch. Light and Dark will invade the worlds of Skylanders Trap Team and all will fall before them.

During the holiday season, players will be able to collect four new Trap Masters - Knight Mare, Blackout and Knight Light and Spotlight - which in addition to having incredible names will also usher in new adventures and give burgeoning portal masters the chance to experience the new Light and Dark elements. You can get each Master via special Light or Dark Elemental Quest Packs.

Each pack “contains a Trap Master, a special Trap capable of capturing either Light or Dark villains, as well as a location piece that unlocks a special level in the game.”

“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 Publishing, Inc. “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 two $29.99 packs will unlock never before seen worlds in Skylanders Trap Team which will feature new items and “never before seen” creatures and villains like Luminous and Nightshade, “who belong to the Doom Raiders - the elite members of Kaos’ army of Skylands’ most notorious bad guys.”

The figures will be released on December 21, ensuring that you will be making one final trip to the toy store before Christmas. Skylanders Trap Team is available for pretty much anything you can run a game on.
