LEGO The Force Awakens Game Trailer Reveals Exclusive New Story Missions

If you’ve been wanting to learn more about the events leading up to The Force Awakens, then you’ll be happy to hear LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to be filling in some of those gaps.  When the game was initially announced, we knew there would be some extra missions involved to flesh out the game and story.  They also told us the mystery of C-3PO’s red arm would be revealed in a playable mission as well.  Today, however, brings us information on ALL the exclusive new story missions that will shed some light on events prior to the film, with an all new trailer: 

So we’ll get to see how those Rathars were captured, see Poe Dameron in action, and even get new details on the enigmatic (but obviously important) Lor San Tekka.  Plus there’s a neat side story involving one of the cool looking background characters from the film, the Crimson Corsair!  In all, it looks like this game will be an awesome complement to the movie itself and give fans more background on certain events.  That’s pretty damn cool and I love seeing this type of synergy between mediums. 

The LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens New Adventures Trailer delves into untold tales within the Star Wars galaxy, all with a signature LEGO twist, including Han Solo and Chewbacca’s voyage to capture the ravenous Rathtars, how the mysterious Crimson Corsair foiled the plans of the First Order, secrets behind Lor San Tekka’s journey to the Jakku Village, Poe Dameron’s daring rescue of Admiral Ackbar and more!
