Red Games and Bandai Namco Entertainment have finally announced a LEGO Brawls release date for consoles. Currently available on Apple Arcade, the team action brawler is headed to the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC on September 2nd. The game will be available digitally as well as on disc, and is up for pre-order now.
What’s LEGO Brawls all about?
A first-person action brawler set in the LEGO universe, LEGO Brawls has players controlling custom minifigs to battle through various LEGO themes in a variety of modes. Control Point, as the name suggests, is a 4v4 mode in which teams are tasked with capturing and holding a control point. Collect Mode will have teams gathering collectibles, with the first team/player collecting most of the items taking the crown. Then, there’s the Brawl Royale that’s basically battle royale. And finally, there’s competitive free-for-brawl mode in which the last player standing wins.
If you want, you can host or join a party locally with three other players to bring on the mayhem. The best part? LEGO Brawls offers cross-play across all platforms! “We wanted to make sure that players could enjoy brawling with friends online or get that competitive couch co-op experience when together in a room like so many great games in the past used to have,” said lead engineer Rory Aguilar.
According to Red Games, LEGO Brawls is a fun game for all ages “whether you’re a LEGO fan that’s in it for the collection, a true competitor building your way to the top of the global leaderboard, or a casual player who simply wants to take down your friends and family with a baguette.” So make some room to smack your friends ahead of the LEGO Brawls release date!
