We mentioned in one of our post last week that “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” now has an official LEGO console game which will be launched via Microsoft’s Xbox One. Knowing that previous LEGO Star Wars video games can be pretty straightforward, that is, it tends to be solely dependent on the original movies’ plot and storyline, TT Games promises to have a different take on the latest movie from the galaxy far, far away. This time, they’re throwing in some side missions – six of them to be exact- that explores some of the character’s back stories all leading to the events that transpired in The Force Awakens. These are six optional missions that pop ups after completing story missions based on the film or once a certain amount of gold bricks has been collected by players.
One of these missions tells how C-3PO got this red arm replacement. This is not revealed and explored yet, except in a comic series but were hopeful that the genius writers from Lucasfilm will come up with something that could be way cooler than the plot in print.
Another mission that Game Informer hinted on involved certain dangerous creatures known as the Rathars which were captured aboard Han Solo and Chewbacca’s new freighter, the Eravana. The Rathars are ravenous creatures rumored to be responsible for the Trillia Massacre. The game will explore how these Rathars were captured and ended eventually into the hands of our timeless galactic duo.
If the side missions are not enough to get you excited and placing your pre-order, LEGO sweetens the deal by offering a Deluxe Edition that includes a rare and exclusive 30605 Finn (FN-2187) minifigure polybag bundled with the Season Pass for the game. Available both for PS4 and Xbox One, ‘LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will be available on June 28 this year.
