New 'Lego Star Wars' Update Lets Gamers Help C-3PO Get a New Arm

The official story of how C-3PO gets the red arm seen in last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already been told (it appeared in April's Star Wars: C-3PO comic book from Marvel), but fans will get to experience it for themselves in the newly announced Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens DLC Level Pack, The Phantom Limb.

Available as an exclusive free download for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms, The Phantom Limb continues the story from the game's Trouble Over Taul level and follows C-3PO as he crash-lands on the planet of Taul and has to find his way off the planet and back to the Resistance.

In addition to C-3PO, the new level features the other droids trapped on the planet, including O-MR1, 2MED2 and PZ-99 — and, yes, there are some droid-eating alien spiders to be found, as well.

The Phantom Limb is the latest addition to the Lego Star Wars franchise following the May release of Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a game that included both director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy as unlockable characters. The game also includes vocal performances from the key cast of the Force Awakens movie.
