Warner Bros. Games, TT Games, LEGO Group and Lucasfilm have revealed the gameplay trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the upcoming game where players will experience memorable moments and nonstop action from all nine Skywalker saga films told through the unique lens of LEGO bricks.
Developed by TT Games in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games and published by Warner Bros. Games, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will release in Spring 2021 for Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch system, PC and Mac.
The trailer gives a glimpse of the adventures that will immerse players into the expansive saga with the freedom to control hundreds of characters and vehicles that will allow them to discover their own unique journey through a galaxy far, far away.
Players have the freedom to start at any of the nine episodes, whether jumping straight in at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (ugh), beginning their journey at the prequels with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace or experiencing the saga in any order they prefer.
Playable characters include favourite heroes like Luke Skywalker, Rey, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Finn, BB-8 and others, as well as characters from the dark side such as Darth Vader, The Emperor, Kylo Ren, Darth Maul, and more. Unforgettable moments from the films have been re-imagined in new, fun-filled, light-hearted humour. Everything from Podracing on Tatooine and space combat above the Death Star, to battling on Starkiller Base and beyond.
“LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a celebration of the heritage and future of LEGO Star Wars games,” said Michael Denny, Vice President and Studio Head, TT Games. “For the first time ever, players can explore the legendary adventures from the Skywalker saga in an immense, new game for everyone to play on current and upcoming platforms.”
The Deluxe Edition of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature the main game and the “Character Collection Bundle Pack” with six DLC character packs inspired by The Mandalorian, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Solo: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars: The Bad Batch and more. The physical version of the Deluxe Edition will include a collectible LEGO Star Wars minifigure, Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk.
Fans will be able to play with the same authentic LEGO Star Wars vehicles, starships, and characters in real life and in the game, including these select sets with unlockable codes that can be redeemed when LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga releases: LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (75292), LEGO Star Wars Resistance I-TS Transport (75293) and LEGO Star Wars Death Star Final Duel (75291).
There’s a lot to digest here for any Star Wars fan but this definitely sounds like the definitive (for now) journey of any LEGO Star Wars fan. The ultimate question though is this, do we need another LEGO Star Wars game?
