ⓘ Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an upcoming Lego-themed action-adventure game scheduled to be released in 2020 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will be the sixth entry in TT Games Lego Star Wars series of video games and the successor to Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The game will adapt all entries in the Star Wars Skywalker saga series of films.


1. Gameplay

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a third-person action-adventure with an open world hub. Unlike most Lego video games in which players had to advance through the story in a linear order, players can choose to start the game from any of the main Skywalker saga episodes and complete them in any order they wish. Each episode has its own hub filled with planets featured prominently in each respective film that can be visited and explored. Each episode will have five story missions each, a total of 45 levels.

Combat has also been revamped, such as lightsaber fights now involving a variety of combos with light attacks, heavy attacks, and Force moves, and blaster characters having an over-the-shoulder camera angle featured in many third-person shooter games.

The games hub won’t be a single cantina, such as the one in the 2007 Complete Saga, but a wide range of fully explorable planets equipped with many iconic star wars landmarks. Random encounters will also happen in the games hub. For example, an Imperial Star Destroyer will suddenly jump out of hyperspace and send a fleet of TIE Fighters after the player. Players can choose to engage in dogfights with them or continue onward to progress the story. The game will have more than 200 playable characters, though TT Games has said that number will change.


2. Development

The game was first teased to be in development by Lucasfilm sound editor Matthew Wood at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. An announcement trailer premiered at E3 2019 during Microsofts press conference.

Disney and Lucasfilm had not shared significant details of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with the game team. In the meantime, TT Games worked on other aspects of the game until Lucasfilm shared more details.

The game is developed in Travellers Tales new engine, NTT.

A second trailer showing one scene from all nine movies was released on 20 December to coincide with the release of The Rise of Skywalker.


3. Audio

Like Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will utilize original voice acting, with Billy Dee Williams announced to voice Lando Calrissian.
