Warner has released the first gameplay trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and it gives a solid taster of what we can expect to see in the finished product.
Firstly, the variety on show is impressive - not only will it include the usual on-foot sections with puzzles, multiple "build" solutions and exciting combat, but you'll also be able to hop into the cockpit of the iconic Millennium Falcon or take down Star Destroyers in an X-Wing.
The trailer also reinforces what we were told when the game was revealed - it will contain plenty of additional story content to flesh out the movie's characters, including Max von Sydow's Lor San Tekka (who is in the actual film for what feels like mere seconds), Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and Poe Dameron.
Here's the official PR:
- Blaster Battles – Players can now engage in intense Blaster Battles, seeking cover behind nearby objects and structures, which is a first for a LEGO game. Characters can then pop out from the safety of cover to fight enemies with blaster fire.
- Multi-Builds – The enhanced Multi-Builds system allows players to choose from multiple building options to solve a puzzle and advance the game in different ways. For the first time, the same pile of LEGO bricks can be used in multiple ways, with the player building and re-building different objects for different purposes.
- Flight Gameplay – Experience the thrill of high-speed, action-packed flight gameplay like never before, piloting iconic vehicles (including the legendary Millennium Falcon) through arena-based battles and dogfights in space.
The game will be hitting the Wii U and 3DS on June 28th.
