We haven’t just got the upcoming DVD release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens to look forward to – let’s not forget that Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and TT Games are bringing us LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the newest entry in the LEGO games franchise. A brand new gameplay trailer has been released showing us our first look at the game in action – check it out below:
LEGOStar Wars : The Force Awakens marks the triumphant return of the No. 1 LEGO videogame franchise and immerses fans in the new Star Wars adventure like never before. Players can relive the epic action from the blockbuster film in a way that only LEGO can offer, featuring all of the storylines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content that takes fans and newcomers on adventures set in the time leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, providing additional insight about the new movie and its characters.
The new trailer looks sweet – I’m really looking forwarding to re-living some of the scenes from the movie. A few new gameplay features are shown off too, such as the cover based ‘Blaster Battles’ and ‘Multibuilds’.
Blaster Battles – Players can now engage in intense Blaster Battles, seeking cover behind nearby objects, which is a first for a LEGO game. Characters can then pop out from the safety of cover to fight enemies with blaster fire.
Multi-Builds – The enhanced Multi-Builds system allows players to choose from multiple building options to solve a puzzle and advance the game in different ways. For the first time, the same pile of LEGO bricks can be used in multiple ways, with the player building and re-building different objects for different purposes.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens launches on June 28th and will be coming to the Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Playstation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC.
