Well that happened quick. It looks like the surprise announcement that Warner Bros wanted to make is not going to be a surprise anymore because Star Wars The Force Awakens has been confirmed by an official listing on the Xbox Store!
We told you about an Amazon listing for the game as well, and now we have Microsoft confirming that the game is actually in the works. Not only that, the release date of the game has also been confirmed.
Star Wars The Force Awakens releases on June 28, 2016 for Xbox One and since the aforementioned listing included PS4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and 3DS versions as well, it would be safe to assume that all platforms will get the game on the same day.
The new LEGO game will continue the humor-filled genre of their games, building on the fun elements of LEGO intermingled with the story of the latest Star Wars. Needless to say, the new story brings us characters like Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Han Solo and many more as well.
Moving on, it has been confirmed that the game is going to fill up the void in the story between Episode 6 and Episode 7 as well using some exclusive playable content:
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.
That being said, with LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens you get Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles as well. IN Multi-Builds, you will be able to use LEGO bricks to make new paths for yourself – the bricks will be breakable so that they can be used at a later stage too.
Fighting against the First Order, Blaster Battles will let you take cover using the surroundings and gain a new form of advantage on the enemy.
A bunch of screenshots have also been shared for the game which we are adding to the gallery below.
Here is the leaked reveal trailer:
LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens is being developed by TT Games for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, and 3DS.
