LEGO STAR WARS: THE SKYWALKER SAGA Gets April 5 Release Date And New Gameplay Trailer

After a lengthy delay, Warner Bros. Games, TT Games, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm Games have announced that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will launch on April 5. We also have a new gameplay trailer.

After originally being slated for release in 2020, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was pushed to Spring 2021 before being undated yet again. Now, Warner Bros. Games, TT Games, the LEGO Group and Lucasfilm Games have officially announced that the highly-anticipated video game will hit shelves on April 5.

The Skywalker Saga promises to be the biggest and most visually striking LEGO Star Wars game yet, and this new trailer gives fans an in-depth look into the gameplay and the freedom offered to players by showcasing the new combat mechanics, a wide range of characters and character classes, a vast galaxy to explore, and much more.

This latest entry in the long-running game series will span all nine Skywalker saga films, and, for the first time ever, allow fans to start at any point in the timeline.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga lets players experience battles like never before in a LEGO game as players can string different attacks together to form combo chains and fend off oncoming attacks. New blaster controls and mechanics allow players to aim with precision and take cover to plot their next move or utilize the skills of a Jedi by wielding a lightsaber and using the power of The Force. Players can traverse space using the galaxy map on their holoprojector to chart their course through the saga, progressively unlocking planets to explore along the way. During space travel, players may engage in heroic dog fights against enemy ships, piloting legendary vehicles like the Millennium Falcon™, Imperial TIE fighters™, Rebel X-wings™, and many more. Once reaching their destination, players can choose to either continue onwards through the main story or explore and discover exciting quests and puzzles within the galaxy.
Exploration rewards players as they uncover Kyber Bricks which unlock new features and upgraded abilities across a range of character classes, including Jedi, Hero, Dark Side, Villain, Scavenger, Scoundrel, Bounty Hunter, Astromech Droid, and Protocol Droid. Play as iconic characters like Leia™, Yoda™, Boba Fett™, Darth Maul™, Poe™ and over three hundred more unlockable characters from across all nine films in free play mode to create fun, new adventures. From the idyllic grassy hills of Naboo to the desert dunes of Jakku, the LEGO Star Wars galaxy is available to discover and play in.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be available for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Do you guys plan on picking this one up?
