In celebration of Star Wars Day, the latest trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens reveals six new adventures that will be featured in the game. Recently announced levels in the title including “Rathtar Hunting,” which has Han Solo and Chewbacca attempting to capture the dangerous Rathtars and a Poe Dameron mission to save Admiral Ackbar (“Poe to the Rescue”).
The creative team behind LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens also didn’t hold back when it came to assembling the voice cast for the game, as Adam Driver (“Kylo Ren), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Carrie Fisher (“Leia Organa), Daisy Ridley (Rey), Dohmnall Gleeson (“General Hux”), Oscar Isaac (“Poe Dameron”) and John Boyega (“Finn”) are just a few of the Star Wars vets who are partaking in the title.
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out June 28 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo 3DS, and Steam (Windows PC) via Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
Check out the trailer below, tell us what you think, and most importantly, May the 4th be with you!!
Imagination and integration were just a few words bandied about during today’s PlayStation Meeting 2013, but one of our favorite quotes came from a video you can check out at the end of this post, as Sony claims that “PlayStation wants to win the war against reality.”
Such a comment may be deemed as incredulous by some gamers, but in “reality” all Sony wants to do, at least from our perspective, is to boost the capabilities with the PlayStation 4.
“Our vision for the future is consumer-centric, developer inspired, and characterized by an unwavering commitment to phenomenal play experiences” said Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. CEO Andrew House. “Today we are revealing the genesis of an expanding ‘idea’ about the future of play – an idea with enough potential to satisfy the insatiable appetites of our creative community of developers and gamers.”
Two of the many highlights from today’s meeting includes the introduction of the wireless Dualshock 4 controller, which comes equipped with the “Share” button. With this feature, gamers can broadcast their gameplay in real time to their friends through internet streaming services as well as upload their accomplishments (and gameplay) on Facebook.
The ability to play PS4 games on a PS Vita is also huge, giving the Vita handheld console added relevance. Gaikai CEO David Perry promised that the Vita will become the “ultimate remote play device” and the ambitious goal is to make every PS4 title playable on the Vita. During the meeting, a demonstration of the PS4 title Knack was played on the Vita (pictured above).
Here’s list of the games that are coming out on the PlayStation 4 which were previewed today:
Although all we have to go on are rumors before tonight’s PlayStation meeting, gaming site Kotaku has done solid reporting on what actually might go on during the announcement.
First off, expect details on the PlayStation 4 (codename Orbis) to emerge during the meeting, and early speculation has the console being released this November with estimated price points at $429 and $529. There is also rumors that the PS4 will be able to be controlled through a tablet or a smartphone, which is huge, considering that the PS3’s most awesome asset is its ability to play Blu-rays (I kid!! I kid!!).
We’re just hoping the PS4’s launch signals the death knell of the PlayStation 3, a sturdy console which, in my opinion, still hasn’t worn out its welcome. Sony’s registering for the domains dealing with something called the “PlayStation Cloud” has also fueled theories that the new console will enable players to stream their games.
Such talk is all fine and dandy, but the truth will come out come 6 pm, and if you’re around this site by then, you can watch the actual meeting in the VIDEO below. Enjoy!
