With the debut of Skylanders Trap Team, players are capable of not only capturing, but taking control of the series' most sinister enemies to help repel enemies and unlock new content. To highlight the power of this franchise-first gameplay feature, the teams at Activision and Toys for Bob crafted a special Dark Edition Starter Pack that includes exclusive character variants, as well as the coveted Ultimate Kaos Trap.

The Dark Edition Starter Pack comes housed in special packaging that highlights the rare character types. Inside fans will find three Skylanders — Snap Shot, Wildfire, and Food Fight — painted in black and silver, which is matched by their in-game characters. Each takes on a unique look and feel with small stylistic changes from their normal design, including cool gradient finishes.


Like the regular Starter Pack, the Dark Edition comes with the Water and Life traps, but also the Ultimate Kaos Trap — a larger, rarer version of the standard Kaos Trap, which allows players to capture Skylanders' notorious villain. And, of course, the center of it all is the new Traptanium Portal, which incorporates a Traptanium vault and speaker, from which you'll be able to hear from your trapped enemies.

For diehard collectors, the Skylanders Trap Team Dark Edition also comes with trading cards, sticker sheets, and an exclusive Dark Edition poster allowing you to track all of your characters and trapped villains.


Skylanders Trap Team is now available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and tablets.
