What is LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens?  

The LEGO Star Wars series returns with LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, from Warner Bros. This is a full game that takes players through the movie, Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and beyond. The game features the familiar LEGO video game humor and play pattern that the LEGO Star Wars games are known for. LEGO Force Awakens also adds some new elements to the familiar game mechanics, one of which is the Multi-Build system. Multi-Build spots allow players to use the same pile of LEGO pieces to build multiple items to solve the puzzles that allow players to progress through the game’s levels. The game also includes levels that are not in the movie, The Force Awakens, including the first level that takes players back to The Battle of Endor from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Playable characters in this level include Ewoks, Luke Skywalker, and Darth Vader. In addition to unlocking playable characters throughout the game, there are also vehicles to discover and drive. The Battle of Endor level introduces the first such vehicle, and gives players the ability to drive an Imperial AT-ST walker.
