The newest LEGO game is now out- recreating the newest Star Wars movie, The Force Awakens, in all of LEGO’s blocky glory, LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens promises players the same brand of family friendly fun that has made these games so enduringly popular to begin with.
For games that are ultimately aimed at younger kids, LEGO titles have a surprising amount of depth and content to them. We’ve already shown you how to make your way through the game’s story mode with our video walkthrough here- but the story content is less than half the tale told. There is so much to do and so much to discover in this game- and that’s where this guide comes in. From cheats, tips, tricks, unlocking characters, and character customization, as well as Achievements and Trophies, this guide has it all.
CHEAT CODES AND UNLOCKING CHARACTERS
Like with all LEGO games, The Force Awakens comes with a staggering amount of characters that players can play through the game as. Some of these are hardcore fan service, that only the most invested Star Wars fans will recognize. Others are the more popular ones, that everyone will probably want to play through the game as. These videos below will show you how to unlock all the characters in the game- sometimes, this entails the use of cheat codes, too.
Once you do have the characters you want to play as unlocked, you’ll probably want to customize them to your liking. And hey, since this is a LEGO game, you can mix and match! The video below will guide you through the process.
INFINITE STUDS AND MONEY
Studs are the currency in LEGO games, and they are used for basically everything. So having more of them is always a good thing- and thankfully, there seems to be a rather fun way to grind out a near infinite amount of them in game.
To do this, you must have unlocked the Millennium Falcon in Chapter 3, as well as the on board holochess table. Replaying this minigame endlessly will yield a lot of studs at the end of each play session.
There are two main types of Collectibles in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Red Bricks and Mini Kits:
Red Bricks are special power ups granting you buffs, status conditions, and bonuses. You must first find them in the game, and then purchase them to activate them
Mini Kits come in sets of 10 and can be found on each level in the game. Once a full set has been gathered, it creates a weapon that you can then use on any level or map in the game.
One of the Red Bricks basically gives you infinite torpedoes. Here’s where you find it:
