The Lego Brawls release date has been revealed. Red Games and Lego's multiplayer "team-action brawler" will launch for PC and consoles later this year, bringing with it a madcap festival of wacky power-ups and customizable Lego figures.
What is Lego Brawls?
Unlike the recently-released Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Lego Brawls isn't part of the main TT Games Lego series. Rather, it's a 2D platform fighter with various different gameplay modes. You'll be attacking or defending control points, collecting...er...collectibles, or duking it out in an all-out brawl. The game will feature a variety of customizable Lego figurines, each with their own moveset, and you can mix and match parts depending on what you want your figure to look like.
Gameplay-wise, if you're thinking of games like Super Smash Bros or the upcoming MultiVersus, you're not a million miles away. Just like those games, Lego Brawls features outlandish power-ups and themed levels, as well as tie-ins with existing properties like Jurassic Park. However, the variety of different game modes and emphasis on customization arguably sets Lego Brawls apart from Smash or Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, for example. You'll also have the ability to set your home world theme, which will influence the collectibles you gather as you play the game.
When is the Lego Brawls release date?
Red Games and Lego have confirmed that the Lego Brawls release date is September 2nd, 2022. When it launches, the game will be arriving on PC, PlayStation consoles, Xbox platforms, and Nintendo Switch, and it will feature cross-play, so you'll be able to play with your buddies even if they're on a different console. The game will support up to 8 players via network play, too, so you can engage in some truly hectic battles. If you're on the fence about Lego Brawls, there's a demo available right now via Steam, so you can give it a try.
The developers have promised to support Lego Brawls with post-launch content, including "seasonal and limited-edition" stuff. We don't yet know what that might be, but hopefully, the developers don't have to undergo a huge amount of crunch in order to deliver it on time. In the meantime, be sure to put Lego Brawls on your wishlist if you're looking forward to it. We'll bring you more on this game as soon as we get it.
