New Gameplay Mechanics for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment just released a new trailer today featuring some new gameplay features for the upcoming LEGO game. Read on for the details. 

LEGO video games have always been about fun, no matter what the franchise. In order to mix up the genre to not feel stale, the LEGO games have been getting some better features. The last game, LEGO Marvel Avengers, had some open world features to it with lots of challenges. Here are some of The Force Awakens highlights of what to expect at the end of June:

Blaster Battles – Players can now engage in intense Blaster Battles, seeking cover behind nearby objects and structures, which is a first for a LEGO game. Characters can then pop out from the safety of cover to fight enemies with blaster fire. 

Multi-Builds – The enhanced Multi-Builds system allows players to choose from multiple building options to solve a puzzle and advance the game in different ways. For the first time, the same pile of LEGO bricks can be used in multiple ways, with the player building and re-building different objects for different purposes. 

Flight Gameplay – Experience the thrill of high-speed, action-packed flight gameplay like never before, piloting iconic vehicles (including the legendary Millennium Falcon) through arena-based battles and dogfights in space.

The video also claims to cover some backstory that fans were asking for when they watched the movie. Like Han and Chewie capturing the Rathtars, Poe's escape from Jakku, and more on Lor San Tekka.
