The First LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Brings Rolling LEGO BB-8

Huzzah! You probably could have guessed it was coming but the first trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here!!

Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, the first title in this franchise, was released back in 2005 and started my obsession with the game series. It was helped along by LEGO then creating games out of licensed properties like Batman, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings… the list goes on. Even if I didn’t love Star Wars: The Force Awakens I’d still play this game.

But for those who do love the film, this game will provide even more fun. Ada Duan, Vice President, Digital Business & Franchise Management, Lucasfilm said “With previously untold story content exploring new details about the movie and its characters, it’s a perfect fit for fans of all ages.” More specifically the press release says:

The game will introduce brand new gameplay mechanics to build, battle and fly through the galaxy like never before, as well as new story content exploring the time between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, providing additional insight about the new movie and its characters.

This action-packed adventure introduces new gameplay features, including the enhanced “Multi-Builds” system, where players can choose from multiple building options to advance the game. Gamers will be able to engage in intense new Blaster Battles for the first time, utilizing surrounding environments to drive back the First Order. Fans can also experience the thrill of high-speed flight gameplay through arena-based battles and dogfights in space, while utilizing a multitude of vehicles along the way, including the legendary Millennium Falcon.

PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 players will have access to exclusive downloadable content, the Droid Character Pack and the Phantom Limb Level Pack.
