The LEGO Star Wars franchise is returning to consoles in 2020.
The Skywalker Saga will become the sixth addition to a series best known for its stunning visuals and clunky aesthetic.
LEGO Star Wars has come a long way since the first instalment arrived around 15 years ago on the Game Boy Advance, and we are so excited to see what TT Games have done to elevate the gameplay.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature on the Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and leading UK retailers have finally added LEGO Star Wars to their sites.
Though the release date is still unconfirmed, we have the option to pre-order TT Games’ upcoming masterpiece.
The Skywalker Saga is listed at £49.99 – an absolute bargain for what is expected to be a gaming masterpiece.
The Skywalker Saga is planned to launch sometime in 2020, though neither TT Games nor Warner Bros. has specified when exactly this will be.
It is pretty hard to pin down a pattern in the release dates of previous Lego video games without any teasers, so we’re playing it by ear for now.

What we do know, however, is that the game will release for the Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Final announcement trailer
There’s a stunning new trailer for all of you Star Wars fans!
As we know, the new game will follow the entire Star Wars collection – all NINE films in the story – which is pretty exciting news.
It will be awesome to play a game full of all the iconic characters we know and love from the full storyline, but more on that later.
TT Games promise to feature “every Star Wars character you can think of” in its playable roster, so expect to be able to choose from a list of hundreds of playable characters.
All of this will come together to build an authentic Star Wars adventure that’s going to be pretty unforgettable.
Play with friends
Just like in previous lego games, the Skywalker Saga will be supporting local co-op play, but we haven’t received word on whether online multiplayer will be available.
We look forward to playing with characters that behave with that tongue-in-cheek humour that we have come to expect from TT Games.
