During Gamescom’s Opening Night keynote, WB Interactive revealed a brand new gameplay trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga!
Gamescom is filled with a surprising amount of Star Wars goodness this year for fans/gamers. On top of Squadrons and The Sims 4 expansion, we’re also getting our first good look at gameplay for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga!
Play through all nine Star Wars saga films in a brand-new LEGO video game unlike any other. Experience fun-filled adventures, whimsical humor, and the freedom to fully immerse yourself in the LEGO Star Wars universe like never before.
Players have the freedom to start at any of the nine episodes, whether jumping straight in at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, beginning their journey at the prequels with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace or experiencing the saga in any order they prefer. Playable characters include favorite 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 LEGO humor. Everything from Podracing on Tatooine and space combat above the Death Star, to battling on Starkiller Base and beyond..
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.
Though it was announced earlier this Summer for an October release date, the title has been officially delayed. We got hints that this could happen yesterday, but it’s nice to know the delay is official. While there’s no firm date, the news also brings word that it will be arriving on Next-Gen consoles as well!
All I know is that being able to play through all the films in the Saga is going to be amazing. The gameplay looks sleek, combining the humor of previous LEGO games, while still being surprisingly emotional. And yes, that was YADDLE in the trailer.
