Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, developer TT Games, The Lego Group and Lucasfilm have released Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the latest installment in Lego’s top-selling video game franchise.

Now available for console, PC and mobile platforms, including Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, Microsoft Xbox One and 360, Nintendo Wii U, and on the App Store for iOS devices, the game features all-new stories within the Star Wars galaxy set in the time period leading up to last year’s record-breaking movie.

Among the game’s additional highlights are storylines from the The Force Awakens tweaked with Lego’s signature humor, new game play features like multi-builds that advance the game in different ways, Millennium Falcon-based aerial battles, five free-play environments, 200 customizable characters and more than 80 vehicles and creatures.

Original dialog from the movie’s stars Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa) and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) is also featured in the game.

A US$89.99 digital deluxe edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is available offering a variety of exclusive downloadable content (DLC) for fans. The regular edition for PS4 and Xbox One retails for US$79.99.

In addition, players on PlayStation 3 and 4 will have access later this summer to exclusive DLC packs for a limited time, including The Phantom Limb Level Pack, which explores the origins of C-3PO’s mysterious red arm.

A date for access on Google Play for Android devices will be released in the coming months.

The game launch arrives on the heels of the premiere of Disney XD’s new series Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures and follows a bigger commitment by WBIE, TT Games and Lego to its toys’-to-life property Lego Dimensions.
