Lego Star Wars The Force Awakens

Excitement is … building for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The game was officially announced Tuesday for a June 28 release on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PS3, PS Vita, Nintendo Wii and Nintendo 3DS. Its trailer is a triumph of brick-based sight gags and loving mockery!

According to the game’s description in online storefronts, we can expect to learn more about what happened in the 30-year void between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens:

“The Force is strong with this one… The No. 1 LEGO® videogame franchise triumphantly returns with a fun-filled, humorous journey based on the blockbuster Star Wars film. Play as Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Han Solo, and the rest of your favorite characters from the movie! In LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, players relive the epic action from the blockbuster film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, retold through the clever and witty LEGO lens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content that bridges the story gap between Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also introduces Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles to the LEGO videogame universe. With Multi-Builds, use available LEGO bricks to open up new paths, then break them apart and re-build them again to open up another! And another! During Blaster Battles, use your surroundings as cover to stand against the First Order. “
