Lucasfilm Games has shared a launch date and new gameplay trailer for what it is calling the biggest Lego Star Wars game ever, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
As the title suggests, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga retains the same action-adventure gameplay and graphics style popularized by the previous games but applies them to all three blockbuster film trilogies, allowing players to journey through all nine episodes and explore over 20 unlockable planets. According to an interview with the developers from last year, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features over 500 characters, hundreds of which are playable.
“Play through all nine Star Wars saga films in a brand-new LEGO video game unlike any other,” reads a description for the game. “Experience fun-filled adventures, whimsical humor, and the freedom to fully immerse yourself in the LEGO Star Wars galaxy.”
“Want to play as a Jedi? A Sith? Rebel, bounty hunter, or droid? LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features hundreds of playable characters from throughout the galaxy. Whether on land or in space, a variety of vehicles are yours to command. Jump to light speed in the Millennium Falcon, fly the T-47 Airspeeder and battle TIE fighters in Resistance X-wings… it’s the ULTIMATE LEGO Star Wars experience.”
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to arrive on April 5, 2022, for the Xbox One family of devices, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
