Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released our first look at the gameplay for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars video game today. The game will be released on June 28, 2016 for nearly every modern platform including PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, PlayStation®Vita, XBox One, Xbox 360, Wii U™, Nintendo 3DS™ and Steam for Windows/PC.
The gameplay version is important so you can get a real sense of what playing the game will be like instead of just the produced, shiny version the original trailer presented.
The cast of the movie version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be providing all new voice work and more importantly the story will fill in some of the gaps between Return of The Jedi and The Force Awakens, removing the mystery of the red arm and the capture of the rathtars.
You can pre-order the standard or Deluxe editions of the games from Amazon right now and for the extra $10 for the Deluxe edition you get an exclusive Finn minifigure and early access to The Empire Strikes Back character pack.
The press release is below:
