First look at 'Lego Jurassic World' turns scary dinosaurs into adorable Lego figures
Lego video games have already let players control Jedi, hobbits, and a Hulk—and now TT Games is throwing dinosaurs into the mix. Spoiler: They’re adorable.
Warner Bros. and TT Games have unveiled the first look at Lego Jurassic World, the latest entry in the Lego video game franchise, which will bring players to a Lego-ized version of Isla Nublar for the first time. TT Games teased the possibility of a Jurassic Park game in the end credits of Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham before confirming in January that the game was in the works.
Lego Jurassic World will let players journey through Lego re-creations of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and this year’s Jurassic World. The game is set for a release sometime in summer 2015, coniciding with the release of the film on June 12 and the Jurassic World Lego sets debuting in May.
The trailer doesn’t actually reveal much about how the game will look—though, to be fair, if you’ve seen a Lego set, you have a good idea of what to expect. The reveal of a Lego T-Rex is more than just a fun introduction—players will actually be able to play as dinosaurs in Lego Jurassic World.
The game will also offer players the chance to collect amber containing dinosaur DNA to create and customize their own species. Hopefully, each collectible piece of amber will come with a short introduction from John Hammond and Mr. DNA.
Lego Jurassic World is set for release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and Windows PC.
