Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is releasing in just a couple weeks, giving fans of the Star Wars saga a chance to experience Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens in the charmingly whimsical way that only the LEGO series can deliver.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is not just a simple re-telling of Episode VII. Developer Traveller’s Tales is delivering exclusive story content that expands on plot points the film never touched on — such as Han Solo and Chewbacca’s dangerous Rathtar hunt and the adventures of the legendary Outer Rim space pirate, Crimson Corsair. So if you were just as confused as me about the old dude who bit the dust in Jakku at the start of Episode VII, don’t worry, because the game will shed some light on this mysterious explorer, Lor San Tekka, and his connection to the fallen Jedi Order.
For folks who would like to dive even deeper into the events surrounding Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, there will be an accompanying season pass available that will further explore key moments from the film with additional level packs, along with character packs that expand the already massive roster of the galaxy’s most famous force wielders, bounty hunters, and droids. The season pass has a $9.99 price tag and will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
There are two editions available for pre-order: the $59.99 Standard edition and the $69.99 Deluxe edition. The Deluxe edition includes the season pass, exclusive LEGO Finn minifigure, and collectible 3D graphic art. Those who pre-order the Deluxe edition will also secure early access to “The Empire Strikes Back” character pack. The Deluxe edition is exclusively available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to release June 28th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PC. PlayStation 4 and PS3 owners will get treated to exclusive DLC, including the Droid Character Pack and Phantom Limb Level Pack.
