The action game actually goes beyond the scope of the film’s narrative, bridging the gap between “Return of the Jedi” and “The Force Awakens” with exclusive, original content that provide more backstory on the film’s most notable characters (like how C-3PO got his red-arm replacement).

You’ll experience brand-new levels set in never-before-seen Star Wars locales based on content from Star Wars books and comics. These levels are optional, and appear at various points between levels based on events in the film. And, you’ll need to collect gold bricks to unlock them, which is all part of the fun of exploring every nook and cranny of the adventure game.

And, of course, you’ll get to build, battle and puzzle your way through epic set pieces you saw on the big screen, such as Jakku and the Starkiller base. Plus you’ll be able to pilot a number of classic Star Wars ships including the Millennium Falcon and X-Wings (and plenty of surprises) on your quest to stop the First Order in this non-stop action game.

This LEGO Game Comes with Several New Twists

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduces an all-new cover system you must master to survive and advance through the game’s intense Blaster Battles. Plus, a new Multi-build system will present you with several build options you can choose from to solve a puzzle, or complete for fun, at various points in each level. The build you chose will open up a different path in the adventure game, which translates into rich replay value.
