The definitive list of every game that contains Star Wars: The Force Awakens content (so far).
You’ve dodged the spoiler train, endured the wait, and now it’s almost time to experience The Force Awakens for yourself. However, what happens when it’s all over and you’re craving to relieve those moments all over again? With no official tie-in game in the works, you’ll have to search a little deeper to find the game you’re looking for.
Luckily, we’ve compiled this list of every game on the market that features The Force Awakens content so far. We’ll update this with new information as time goes by, so keep checking back for the latest updates.
Star Wars Battlefront’s first bit of (free) DLC launched at the start of December 2015 (earlier if you pre-ordered), allowing players to compete in the new location of Jakku, as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The update also introduced a new game mode called Turning Point, showcasing a battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire following the events of Return Of The Jedi’s Battle Of Endor.
This unique opportunity gave EA a chance to tell a story which actually takes place 29 years before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. At this point, Jakku is the center of a colossal battle, with players encountering debris plummeting to the ground, fallen Star Destroyers, and a chaotic space-war in the skies. Jakku’s map is just as expansive and visually stunning as the other four locations in Star Wars Battlefront, and well worth the download.
The Force Awakens Play Set allows players to relive the events of the film over a period of 6-8 hours, utilizing one of four characters.
In the interest of avoiding spoilers, we won’t list some of the finer details about this Play Set, but you can be assured that it takes place across a variety of locations, including the planet Jakku.
The set itself includes the characters of Rey and Finn and costs in the range of $30 – $40, while fans will have to fork out extra money for access to Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron. Disney Infinity has the unique distinction (until summer 2016) of being the only Star Wars game on the market that allows players to relive the events of The Force Awakens.
GameSided’s Nick Tylwalk reviewed Disney Infinity 3.0 earlier this year and found it to be an excellent experience.
December 3rd’s Star Wars Commander expansion introduced a brand-new planet and two mercenaries inspired by The Force Awakens.
In case you weren’t aware, Star Wars Commander is a mobile strategy game, featuring a story which is set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Over time, you can develop your base and grow your army, and you can even compete with other players for control of different planets.
The new update introduces the planet of Takodana, as featured in the trailers for The Force Awakens. The planet is also inhabited by Maz Kanata, who will appear in the upcoming film. The expansion introduces The Luggabeast Munitioneer and The Dowutin Hunter as mercenaries which are also inspired by characters from The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: Galaxy Of Heroes’ latest update features the ability to collect characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, including Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren, and many more.
Players can utilize these characters in battle, with each individual benefiting from a unique skill set.
Additionally, players who login to the game between December 17 – December 31 will receive two free characters, with Apple device owners gaining access to Poe Dameron and a First Order Stormtrooper, while Captain Phasma and a Resistance Trooper will join the lineup on Android.
Konami’s mobile-based card game has joined The Force Awakens’ hype train with a barrage of new cards that are based around the characters from the new film.
It’s not all about the cards though, as the game has also received an updated menu screen design, an improved chat system, and more. Players can benefit from a range of Star Wars: The Force Collection incentives throughout the holidays, including an exclusive set of packs that are guaranteed to contain The Force Awakens cards from December 18-23, in addition to other special packs over the Christmas period.
Finally, all players will receive a five-star BB-8 card simply for logging into the game, although this will only continue for a limited time.
Star Wars Pinball: The Force Awakens Pack
The ever-popular Star Wars Zen Pinball collection just got a little bigger, with the addition of two new tables containing content from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The first table focuses on the Resistance, featuring the characters of Rey, Finn, Leia, Han Solo and Poe Dameron as they fight across various different locations. Unsurprisingly, the second table is centered around the evil First Order, and you’ll be able to utilize Kylo Ren’s powers to control unique gameplay elements in his attempt to destroy the Resistance.
These tables look stunningly well made and authentic to the film. They’re available now for most major platforms.
New! LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens
The only game on our list that’s completely centered around the new movie is LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Set for release on June 28, 2016 for PC and a wide range of consoles, the game will retell the story of Episode VII through a “clever and witty LEGO lens“.
You’ll be able to play as your favorite characters from the movie, and the game will introduce new LEGO concepts such as Multi-Builds and Blaster Battles. There’s going to be exclusive DLC for PlayStation owners as well.
We don’t know everything about this one just yet, but if the official trailer and past LEGO Star Wars experiences are anything to go by, this looks set to be an incredible experience for Star Wars: The Force Awakens enthusiasts. Find out more here.
