The first gameplay trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows off a range of high-octane activities.

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens includes new gameplay features, some of which Warner Bros. has outlined in a new trailer and the following bullet points:

  • Blaster Battles – Players can now engage in intense Blaster Battles, seeking cover behind nearby objects, 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, t he 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.

Customers who pre-order through GameStop will receive the exclusive Jabba’s Palace Character Pack. It includes Jabba the Hutt, Bib Fortuna, Malakili and Gamorrean Guards. Bounty hunter Booush, dancer Oola, and Princess Leia in her Jabba’s barge costume are also included in the pack.
