When will Lego The Incredibles be released?
So, the biggest question of all is “when will I be able to play LEGO The Incredibles?” and don’t worry, you’ve not got too long to wait. Unlike other publishers that announce games months, or even years ahead of launch, Warner Bros announced that LEGO The Incredibles will be available to buy on 13 July 2018. That’s not too far away!
Fun fact: it’s the same day that the upcoming The Incredibles 2 will be released in cinemas in the UK. What better way to spend the day than watching the film in the cinema, then coming home and playing as LEGO-fied versions of the characters you’ve just been watching?

Which platforms will Lego The Incredibles be available for?
Okay, now we’ve established a solid release date, the next focus is platforms. Somewhat obviously, LEGO The Incredibles is set to be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC, and we imagine there will be 4K support for the high-end PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
But what about Switch users, do they get some LEGO love? We’re happy to report that they do, as the game is set to come to the portable Nintendo Switch at the same time as other platforms.
It’s not available to pre-order on any platform just yet, but we’ll add that information as soon as it becomes available.
What should I expect from gameplay?
Admittedly, details are still a little bit light when it comes to gameplay, but you should expect the usual charm and excitement that comes with LEGO games, along with a lot of building! What we do know is that in addition to offering a roster of charming characters from the first The Incredibles film in LEGO form, Warner Bros has confirmed that the game will also include characters and environments from the upcoming The Incredibles 2.
Players will be able to explore story levels based on both movies and a hub world that includes Municiberg and Nomanisan Island, using endless combinations of the Parr family’s abilities to conquer crime and bring villains to justice. And don’t worry, the LEGO series’ signature two-player co-op mode will also be available in the upcoming game.
The game is said to “offer hours of creative play within an imaginative LEGO version of The Incredibles movies,” Sean William McEvoy, VP Digital Games & Apps at LEGO explained. “The co-operative puzzle solving creates fun for the entire family.”
