Fans have long been awaiting the fourth entry in the Jurassic Park franchise and they’ll finally get it later this summer in the form of Jurassic World. The film (which is set to release June 12, 2015) is reason enough for dinosaur aficionados to start getting hyped, but Tt Games and Warner Bros. Interactive only just recently confirmed that a video game based on the property is en route – albeit a little blockier than some have preferred.
To coincide with the launch of the corresponding play sets, LEGO Jurassic World will be arriving on a myriad of existing video game consoles later this year. To celebrate the latest Jurassic World trailer that aired during Super Bowl XLIX, Warner Bros. Interactive has given fans the first sneak peek at what awaits them in the upcoming LEGO video game. Suffice to say, it looks just as goofy as one would expect a game about plastic dinosaurs to be.
While the trademark humor of the LEGO series is still very much intact, the quality of the plastic tyrannosaurus rex looks very promising for those hoping to see these titles and character look more and more like the product they’re portraying. Of course, content is what will be the main appeal of LEGO Jurassic World, which is why fans will be excited to hear that all four of the movies will be LEGO-ified and made playable.
That’s right, gamers will be able to play through Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III and the upcoming Jurassic World in the forthcoming LEGO title. Better yet, they’ll actually be able to take on the role of various dinosaurs that appear in the films. Players will unlock these playable prehistoric beasts by collecting amber, at which point they can then use this newfound D.N.A. to build their very own dinosaur.
Based on the apparent results of the very premise of splicing in Jurassic World, however, maybe it would be best for gamers to avoid a scenario that results in the terrifying Indominus Rex – although there will be no hiding from the beast in-game.
LEGO Jurassic World will arrive on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, 3DS and PC in June 2015.
