Official Xbox Website Confirms LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens With Summer Release Date

by Dean James


Amazon Italy has been known for leaking a number of games in the past and the latest was seemingly LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as we told you about earlier tonight. We didn’t think details of this would be coming until the morning through an announcement being teased by Warner Bros., but it appears that the official Xbox website jumped the gun with a full leak with plenty of details and screenshots.

According to the official listing on the Xbox website, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to arrive on June 28 for Xbox platforms. It would also be incredibly likely that is is coming the same day for pretty much every other available platform, as LEGO games come out on most systems.

As with the initial Amazon Italy listing, the official Xbox website details the game in pretty much the same way, talking about how it will recreate Star Wars: The Force Awakens, allowing us to play as new characters Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo Ren, and BB-8, as well as veterans like Han Solo.

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about this is the mention of introduction of multi-builds and blaster battles, which it says are a first to the LEGO game universe. Considering most LEGO games are a lot of fun but not all that groundbreaking, hopefully this will be something to give fans an entirely new LEGO experience.

Another question is whether they will go the route of other recent LEGO games like LEGO Jurassic World and LEGO Marvel’s Avengers and include the actual voice acting from the movie. This has worked very well in those, so hopefully that will remain the case here as well, even though the original two trilogies did not have them.

With the next Star Wars movie, Rogue One, not coming until later this year, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens may just quench that Star Wars thirst when it releases this summer on June 28.
