One of the many questions that has surrounded Star Wars: The Force Awakens since it's release has been how C-3PO came to have a red arm in the film. Thankfully we got the answer in the one shot Marvel comic C-3PO #1 that was released last April. Now the story surrounding Threepio's famous appendage is expanding ever further and you will be able to play it in the Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens video game.
Today, a new free DLC was released exclusively for Playsation 3 and Playsation 4 players and is based on the same storyline from the comic. The Phantom Limb level pack puts you in control of C-3PO and nine other droids after they have crash landed on the harsh and desolate world of Taul.
Along with Threepio, who is once again voiced by Anthony Daniels, another major droid character is O-MR1, who is a First Order protocol droid who has been taken prisoner by the other Resistance droids. O-MR1 is voiced by Simon Pegg, who also portrayed Unkar Plutt in The Force Awakens. The other droids included in the DLC are described in the official description:
"First up is PZ-99, a security droid whose prime directive is to protect all non-combat personnel. Teaming up with him is VL-44, another security droid, armed with an incinerator to destroy gold LEGO bricks and fend off the hostile creatures on the surface of Taul. There’s also CO-34, a construction droid able to do most of the heavy lifting for the group, MSE-Y, a repair droid, GNK-189, a power droid, and 2MED2, a medical droid."
