As part of the run-up to the June release of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will be releasing a series of character videos, introducing the characters in their new bricked form.
Unlike previous videos, which featured characters from the new movie, the latest feature returns to the beginning…..a long time ago, in 1980, The Empire Strikes Back. One of the previously announced DLC packs for the game features a character pack from the original trilogy movie and those who pre-order the Deluxe Edition of the game will receive early access on launch day. The new vignette showcases this exciting content in full LEGO form with signature LEGO humour, including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia in cold weather gear; the cybernetic Lobot and the Ugnaughts of Cloud City, as well as deadly bounty hunters Bossk, Dengar and Boba Fett (with Boba Fett’s original white armor).
The LEGO Star Wars franchise has been one of the most successful in LEGO history, especially in video game form with three top selling games released over the last decade. Marking the triumphant return of the number one LEGO video game franchise, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to immerse fans in a bricked-up recreation of the latest big-screen Star Wars adventure. Players can relive the epic action from the blockbuster film in a way that only LEGO can offer, featuring all of the storylines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content exploring New Adventures set in the time leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, providing further insight about the new movie and its characters.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released on June 28, 2016 and will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Steam (Windows PC).
