Activision have announced that Skylanders Trap Team is officially available at major retailers in the UK today on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, Wii and Wii U, and a completely unique adventure available on the 3DS. The launch of Skylanders Trap Team also ushers in the complete console gaming experience on Tablet, introducing a Starter Pack that supports iPad, Kindle Fire and Android tablets.
To mark the moment Skylanders Trap Team lands at retailers in Europe, an intrepid team of ‘SkyTrappers’ – were the first people in the world to trap a virtual villain while freefalling from 12,500 feet above earth and travelling at speeds of 122 miles per hour.

The game continues to lead and evolve the category with Skylanders Trap Team letting fans seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pull them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in magical Traps. Once they’ve defeated the villains, players will be able to place a Trap into the new Traptanium Portal to capture them. Players can then send villains back into the game where they can play as them to fight for good, reversing the magic. They will also be able to hear the villains inside the Traps, an innovation that truly brings life to toys.
Skylanders Trap Team introduces heroes known as Trap Masters that wield powerful Traptanium weapons used to defeat Skylands’ most notorious villains including Kaos, as well as brand new Core Skylanders characters and reposed fan-favourite Skylanders characters. The game also features a variety of elementally aligned Traps with unique and interesting designs.
In addition, Skylanders Trap Team welcomes Skylanders Minis, 16 small but powerful Skylanders now fully playable, who join the battle against Skylands’ most nefarious villains. Coming to fans worldwide on 1st November, Eon’s Elite collectors’ toys feature never-before-seen decoration with a distinct, metallic finish and a golden base that sets them apart from other Skylanders toys.
Skylanders Trap Team is compatible with more than 175 unique toys from all previous games — Skylanders SWAP Force, Skylanders Giants and Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure — every character also will be able to defeat and trap villains using Traptanium Traps, providing fans more ways to enjoy their collections.
EF will be bringing you a full review of Skylanders Trap Team later this month.
