Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment released the first official Gameplay Trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens today – and it includes a lot of awesome new content.
Although LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens won’t be released until June 28th of this year, Warner Bros. is already giving fans a glimpse of the brand new features that will be available. For example, for the first time in a LEGO game players will be able to engage in Blaster Battles, where they can seek cover behind nearby objects and structures, then pop out to fight enemies with blaster fire.
However, personally I think the enhanced Multi-Builds system is going to be even more exciting than the duck-and-cover option. This system allows LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens players to choose from several building options in order to solve a puzzle, which will then advance the game in different ways – but the best part is the fact that players will be able to use the same pile of LEGO bricks to build and re-build different objects for different purposes. Again, this is a first for a LEGO game, and since it sounds so much more like what I did with LEGOs when I was younger, I’m definitely excited to see it in action!
Last but not least, the game will feature flight gameplay that includes the option to pilot iconic Star Wars vehicles like the Millennium Falcon. This flight gameplay will offer both arena-based battles and dogfights in space, and to be honest I can’t wait to find out what other ‘iconic’ vehicles are featured in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
LEGO games have a reputation for being clever and witty, and as a big fan of Star Wars: The Force Awakens I’m definitely interested to see how the story lines from the movie are retold in this game. I highly suggest that other Star Wars fans keep an eye out for it as well!
