It was just a few months ago that we heard the news that LEGO Jurassic World was set to hit consoles sometime this year. If we were to tell you we weren’t excited to hear that TT Games and Warner Bros. Entertainment were hooking up to bring us a dino-filled LEGO game spanning the first three films AND the new one starring Chris Pratt, it’d be a bold-faced lie. If the developer’s full catalogue of excellent LEGO titles was any indication that we’d be seeing something special, the game’s first trailer cemented those sentiments with enough charm in its little brick pinky to keep us coming back and clawing for more. Fortunately, the new trailer released today keeps those good vibes rolling and gives us all a closer look at what to expect on launch.
In addition to the revelation that the game will be coming to home consoles June 12, 2015, the trailer showcased several of the dinos we’ll be able to check out (and even play as) once we get our hands on it. Amidst the prehistoric predators will be big dinos, tiny dinos, friendly dinos, angry dinos, flying dinos, battling dinos, and let’s not forget goofy dinos. Whew! According to the press release, there’ll be a whopping 20+ dinosaurs you’ll be able to play as. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to wreak havoc as a terrifying tyrannosaurus rex (minus the stubby arms, of course).
The company behind the game–which is already available for pre-order–revealed that players will be able to snag extra goodies with their purchase at several locations on launch. According to the list, GameStop will offer a LEGO Dino Trap Mini Playset, Target will offer a Dr. Wu Minifigure and Walmart will offer a $10 Movie Cash Certificate. It seems where you buy the game depends on what you get with your purchase.
LEGO Jurassic World is set to release June 12, 2015 on PS4, PS3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC.
