Update: WBIE has officially announced Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The title will launch on June 28, 2016 and will introduce a host of new gameplay mechanics that will allow players to build, battle, and fly through the galaxy while also exploring new story content that took place between Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Star Wars fans can expect to play as all of the characters from The Force Awakens, including Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8. Characters from The First Order will also be playable, including Kylo Ren, General Hux, and Captain Phasma.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens will introduce new gameplay features, including a new "Multi-Builds" system. The system allows players to choose from multiple building options to help advance their progress. That's not all as the new Blaster Battles allows players to utilize the surrounding environments to drive back the First Order while arena-based battles and dogfights will also be included, which will allow players to experience high-speed flight gameplay.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. Both the PS3 and PS4 versions will have access to the Droid Character Pack and the Phantom Limb Level Pack.

Original Story:

A trailer for another Lego Star Wars game has apparently leaked ahead of its time.

The YouTube channel Games Cage (via Star Wars Underworld) shows the 30-second teaser, featuring many of the recent film's most iconic moments in plastic brick form. However, given the low quality of the video and the lack of an accompanying announcement, it seems likely this was screencaptured and not meant to go out quite yet. The purported trailer pegs the release date as June 28.

This does align with rumors of an impending announcement that began late last night, after a now-pulled Amazon Italy listing. We expect an official announcement, with a cleaner trailer, to show up sometime today.
