Set for release on June 28, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be arriving on every console under the sun (meaning XBOX One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Playstation Vita, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS) along with the PC, and despite not being an avid fan of the LEGO games, I'm pretty excited. But then it is Star Wars we're talking about here.

This game is set to deliver the original voices from J.J. Abrams' smash hit [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) in a LEGO setting, along with some exploration of previous films in the franchise. We'll also be gifted some insight into events that even the films haven't depicted! But watching the trailers for LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens makes you wonder what one of the biggest games in recent memory could have been: [Star Wars: Battlefront](tag:2684021).

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Has What Battlefront Needs

It's strange to admit, but there was a lot that I loved about DICE's Star Wars: Battlefront. I've achieved the maximum rank, played countless hours online and actually really enjoyed my time with it! It's a stunningly beautiful game and there are moments online that really can take your breath away. But there's one thing that Star Wars: Battlefront is missing, and no one put it better than The Force Awakens' own John Boyega!

BOYEGA: “@EAStarWars Will fans get a full on offline story mode? It’s more of an enjoyable way to learn controls.”
EA: “Have you had a chance to try the Missions?”
BOYEGA: “Yeah thought it was great! But definitely leaves you wanting to engage within a narrative. Can I visit your base in the UK?”
EA UK: “Sounds like a date ”

Many fans were dismayed upon hearing that Star Wars: Battlefront wouldn't feature a campaign or any kind of story missions. It seems that John Boyega also shared our desire for a narrative after engaging with the title following its release. Thankfully, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will have us covered. We'll even get to see how Han Solo and Chewie catch the Rathtar and how C3PO got his red arm. That's some real value right there.

Seeing this game's trailers have made us long for more and more Star Wars in our lives and we sincerely hope that EA and DICE are building up to the release of a great campaign for Star Wars: Battlefront 2. Are you excited for the release date of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens? If so, tell us why!
