LEGO Bricktales launch trailer showcases the game’s sandbox puzzles

LEGO Bricktales is out now on consoles and PC, and you can get a taste of everything the game has to offer in a launch trailer showcasing its sandbox puzzles.

Where building with bricks in TT Games’ long-running series of LEGO titles mostly amounts to holding down a single button – and sometimes choosing between two different options – LEGO Bricktales hands the power back to the player, giving you the tools to devise your own brick-built solutions to its puzzles. It’s another step away from the formulaic TT approach to LEGO video games, following recent efforts like LEGO Builder’s Journey.

Early reviews of the game are encouraging, describing LEGO Bricktales as ‘a near-perfect video game representation of joyous LEGO creativity’. It’s available now across consoles and PC, and you can see the game in action through a brand new launch trailer posted to the official LEGO YouTube channel.

The basic premise of LEGO Bricktales involves being dropped into a brick-built biome, then scouring for secrets, hunting for hidden objects and brainstorming brick-built solutions to various challenges – such as crossing a bridge or devising a scratching tree for a cat – each of which has specific criteria to satisfy before progressing to the next stage. 

Those builds apparently don’t require a degree in civil engineering to accomplish, but they will be stress-tested by a robot to make sure they’re up to snuff. Within the limited palette of bricks you’re given for each challenge, though, you’ve effectively got a blank canvas to get as creative as you like. It adds up to a decidedly different LEGO video game, and one that should feel pretty refreshing off the back of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

LEGO Bricktales is available now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
