on January 12, 2017 9:22 AM

Today, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer TT Games announced the first details of LEGO City Undercover, which is coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC sometime in spring 2017, as well as dished out the game’s first trailer.

As you may remember, the sandbox-style open-world adventure game first launched for Wii U in March 2013. Unlike most LEGO titles developed by Traveller’s Tales, which are based in various licenses, City Undercover is based on the LEGO City brand.

As mentioned above, TT Games and Warner Bros. provided a new overview of the game:

Join the Chase! LEGO® CITY Undercover is coming to current and new generation consoles for the first time. In one of the most expansive LEGO videogames to date, players become Chase McCain, a police officer who goes undercover to hunt down the notorious – and recently escaped – criminal, Rex Fury, to put an end to his city-wide crime wave. This open-world LEGO adventure allows fans and newcomers to explore the sprawling metropolis that is LEGO® CITY with more than 20 unique districts to investigate, filled with car thieves to bust, vehicles to navigate, mischievous aliens to capture, hilarious movie references to discover, lost pigs to rescue and of course, hundreds of collectibles. With 15 special assignments to conquer, LEGO CITY Undercover brings together witty, original storytelling with signature LEGO humor to create a fun-filled experience for players of all ages, available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One®, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.

GAME FEATURES:

  • BECOME LEGO CITY’S FINEST – Assume the identity of undercover police officer, Chase McCain, and track down the fiendish Rex Fury to finally put an end to his city-wide crime wave.

  • EXPLORE THE CITY – With more than 20 distinct districts to investigate, LEGO CITY is a bustling metropolis that is ripe for exploration and filled to the brim with people on the streets to interact with, criminals to take down and hundreds of collectibles.

  • BE A MASTER OF DISGUISE – As a man of many talents, Chase McCain has eight disguises to choose from, each with unique skills and abilities to infiltrate every corner of the city, allowing him to access places a regular old officer can’t.

  • OVER 100 VEHICLES – In LEGO CITY, every vehicle on the street can be commandeered with more than 100 to choose from so players can get behind the wheel of sports cars, motorcycles, helicopters and more to chase down criminals or take a leisurely ride through the urban jungle to check out the sights.

  • FIGHT CRIME – Take down criminals with hand-to-hand combat or arrest bad guys using Chase’s handy grapple gun and standard issue police handcuffs.

  • THE CAST – Chase is joined by officer Frank Honey, Chief of Police Dunby and paramedic Natalia Kowalski, who are just a few of the more than 300 unlockable and playable characters that gamers will meet throughout the adventure.

  • HUMOUR, HUMOUR, HUMOUR – Featuring an original storyline, LEGO CITY Undercover is chock-full of signature humour with hilarious movie and music references peppered throughout the open-world.

Further, and not mentioned in the above overview, a Best Buy’s product listing reveals that the game will feature two-player co-op support.
