New, 25 comments

PlayStation players get exclusives, too

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer TT Games have officially announced Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Watch the debut trailer for the game, which launches June 28, above.

The game will debut across all major platforms — Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One —€” but PS3 and PS4 owners will have access to exclusive downloadable content.

The Force Awakens' Lego adaptation will not only cover the 2015 film, but introduce new content filling in the gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Also new: a "Multi-Build" option and Blaster Battles, both unique to this Lego game. Players will also be able to pilot the Millennium Falcon while playing as various characters from the film, like Finn, Poe Dameron and Rey.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens will also receive a season pass, although details remain scant on what it will include or its release schedule. A Deluxe Edition copy of the game, detailed by the game's official website, promises access to the season pass content in full; it also comes with an exclusive FN-2187 (otherwise known as Finn) Lego figure.

The majority of these details leaked ahead of the official announcement when the trailer found its way to YouTube last night. The Xbox Games Store also posted a listing for the game in advance of its reveal.

Yesterday, Warner Bros. teased that it would be bringing two major brands together for a "massive announcement," to be detailed this morning. Yet Electronic Arts previously signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Disney and Lucasfilm to develop and publish games based on the Star Wars franchise. It remains unclear as to what arrangement Warner Bros., Disney and Lucasfilm came to in order to release this game.
