The LEGO Group has announced a FREE new mobile video game called Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles. The action-packed game will be available to play on iOS devices as well as via any browser on the official LEGO website from May 4th, 2013. Yes, this Saturday! Android devices will get the game in Summer 2013.
The storyline is: “The Clone Wars have raged for three years with neither the Knights of the Jedi Order or the Droid Army of the Separatists close to victory. On Coruscant in the quiet Holocron Vault at the centre of the Jedi Temple, Master Yoda instructs the next generation of Jedi – the Padawans. Little do they know that Darth Sidious has hatched a mischievous plan to tip the tide of the war and trouble is brewing across the galaxy…”
Questing with Yoda or Count Dooku, players can choose to join the Light Side or the Dark Side in this thrilling new FREE game. The Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles story and game intertwines with the 2013 LEGO Star Wars novelty products in which there’s a mix of real time laser battles, intricate dungeon crawling, lightsaber duels and tense space combat high above Coruscant. The game contains 15 fast-paced main levels and 5 bonus mini-missions, to be played as either the Light Side or the Dark Side. Half of these levels are available in the first release on May the 4th, with the remainder following in Summer 2013 when the game will also be released on Android devices.
Players must head into battle across dusty desert planets and through high tech facilities, using minimal yet engaging controls to command their units. Collecting studs along the way allows players to build troops, ground units (tanks and walkers) and starships. There are 20 achievements rewarded per release for completing the main missions with style and skill. The 5 additional mini-missions offer a frantic quick play option with the one aim of destroying as many opponents as possible! Ranking up in the mini-missions will increase the power of a player’s units in the main game.
Integrated with LEGO ID, players can also switch their game between mobile devices and the web and experience exclusive bonus levels on each platform. Finally, you can use your own powers of perception to find secret codes hidden throughout the Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles mini-movies and website, to unlock bonus units, perks and content!
