In what seems to have been a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Warner Bros announced that the team at TT Games were working on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga which encompassed all nine of the mainline Star Wars films. Today, they’ve finally set a release date in April along with a new trailer which takes a deep dive into the gameplay and some surprise features.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to release on 5th April across all platforms and tells the story of the nine episodic Star Wars films, with the usual LEGO humour thrown in for good measure. As you work from the beginning of the story, where a little boy from Tatooine is found to be Force adept, through to the rise and fall of the Empire, exploration is greatly rewarded. Finding Kyber Bricks can be found, unlocking new features and upgraded abilities across a range of character classes, including Jedi, Dark Side, & Bounty Hunter.

There is a plethora of characters to unlock, from the iconic Leia, Yoda, & Boba Fett to more obscure cast members. TT Games say there’s around 300 to unlock from across all nine films.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature Mumble Mode, an option that fans of older LEGO games, where you can toggle an option that replaces all voices with mumbles. Other new features include stringing together attack combos and new blaster controls to aim with greater precision. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Star Wars game if lightsaber wielding and Force Powers weren’t included.

If you digitally pre-order the game then you’ll unlock the Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi. He will not be available for purchase separately. You’ll also receive early access to the Trooper Character Pack on launch day. This pack will be available for purchase a month after launch either separately or as part of the Character Collection, this pass includes seven character packs which will be released after the game’s release.

There will be a physical version of the Deluxe Edition will include an exclusive LEGO Star Wars minifigure, Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk.

LEGO® Star Wars™: The Skywalker Saga, will release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC on 5th April 2022.
