The Force Awakens… in LEGO

Yes, there will be a LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game.

Always a nice surprise, LEGO and Traveller’s Tales have yet another Star Wars title in the works, as you can see. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will allow you to play as “Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8, as well as Kylo Ren, General Hux and Captain Phasma”. You’ll also visit some of the locales from the most recent Star Wars flick, including Jakku and of course- Starkiller Base.

The game will also feature a few new gameplay innovations for LEGO titles. Multi-Builds will allow you to engage in a few different building options that should skate things up nicely, while new Blaster Battles will apparently work-in some kind of cover mechanic as you’ll make use of “surrounding environments” in firefights.

There’s more too, with Tt mentioning “high-speed flight gameplay through arena-based battles and dogfights in space”, and the promise of being able to pilot “a multitude” of Star Wars vehicles including the Millennium Falcon.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits current and last-gen consoles, handhelds, and the PC on June 28th.
