The immensely popular LEGO Star Wars video game series is getting another installment this summer with the release of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But unlike previous volumes, the newest mashup of the LEGO and Star Wars licenses will feature the stars of the film on which the game is based.
Yes, that’s right: The Force Awakens stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and Harrison Ford will provide the voices of their adorable animated counterparts. If you can’t wait to see – or hear – the game in action, check out the brand new trailer below.
Previous LEGO Star Wars games haven’t strayed too far from the basic plot of the films, but LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will offer players a number of new adventures that fill in some of the events that took place prior to the latest cinematic outing. Here’s a sample of what you can look forward to:
- Rathtar Hunting – Follows Han Solo and Chewbacca’s voyage to capture the ravenous Rathtars.
- Lor San Tekka’s Return – Uncovers secrets behind Lor San Tekka’s journey to the Jakku Village.
- Poe to the Rescue – Details Poe Dameron’s daring rescue mission to save Admiral Ackbar.
- Crimson Corsair – Explores how the notorious Outer Rim pirate, the Crimson Corsair, foiled the plans of the First Order.
- Trouble Over Taul – Follows the events leading up C-3PO’s acquisition of his new red arm.
- Ottegan Assault – Reveals a puzzle piece to how the Resistance and the First Order find Lor San Tekka on Jakku.
When this game was first announced, I dismissed it as something that I might pick up in the bargain bin somewhere down the line. But with so much new content, it’s going to be hard to pass this one up. Guess I’ll go ahead and pre-order…
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available on June 28.
