Games you can play this week — blocks and barricades

June has been incredibly busy for gaming, and as we head into the final week of the month, we see some new releases – including a blocky return for Star Wars, a zombie-packed survival romp, and an explosive sci-fi saga of epic proportions.


Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens

28 June 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U)

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens is based on the seventh episode of the space family saga and its namesake, and continues the tongue-in-cheek block-busting Lego video games gameplay people have come to love.

You will be able to play as Rey, Finn, Captain Phasma, Poe Dameron, Han Solo, Kylo Ren and even droids, including C-3PO and BB-8. The actors who portrayed them on the big screen – Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie and Max von Sydow – are all lending their voices to the game.

Apart from serving as an adaptation, the game will also bridge the gap between Ep 6: Return of the Jedi and Ep 7: The Force Awakens. If you opt for the Deluxe Edition, you will get a Season Pass and a Lego mini-figure of Finn.


7 Days to Die

28 June 2016 (Xbox One, PS4, PC)

To everyone’s dissatisfaction, local co-op games have become a neglected focus in the gaming industry, but The Fun Pimps’ zombie shooter, 7 Days to Die, which releases this week, is fully embracing it.

7 Days to Die is an open-world zombie survival game which blends FPS, survival horror, tower defence and RPG – but best of all, it features split-screen. Online multiplayer modes are also available, but the addition of split-screen “just makes sense” according to the developers. We agree.
