“LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Video Game Announced

We are big fans of the LEGO series of videogame adaptations, so we couldn’t be more excited to report that LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been announced and will be released on June 28, 2016.

The LEGO games have consistently mixed action, puzzle-solving with strong visual humor in a fun multiplayer, family-friendly package. This looks like a must-buy.

From the official game description:

“The Force is strong with this one… The No. 1 LEGO® videogame franchise triumphantly returns with a fun-filled, humorous journey based on the blockbuster Star Wars film. Play as Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Han Solo, and the rest of your favorite characters from the movie!

In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, players relive the epic action from the blockbuster film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also introduces Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles to the LEGO videogame universe. With Multi-Builds, use available LEGO bricks to open up new paths, then break them apart and re-build them again to open up another! And another! During Blaster Battles, use your surroundings as cover to stand against the First Order. “
