LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga: *Updated* Release date, characters, consoles, plot, story, switch, cover art & Everything else you need to know
The hotly-anticipated title will bridge the gap between photo-realism and LEGO games.
The first LEGO Star Wars instalment arrived a whopping 15 years back on the Game Boy Advance, and we are so glad that TT Games is back with what will be their strongest LEGO title to date.
If you’re here for the facts, then look no further. This piece is devoted to everything Star Wars and will be updated weekly with new information.
A New Hope for video games
The Skywalker Saga will include stories from all nine Star Wars films, including action from the upcoming film Episode IX.
The upcoming game is bridging the gap between photo-realism and Lego, making this game so much more than a family-friendly adventure.

Playing LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens a few years back, I found that it was an oddly incomplete experience.
The whole film was there compressed into Lego form, and there were even extra missions and clips included to pad it out, yet it still felt a little too brief for a Lego game (considering how the experiences typically cover a whole movie trilogy).
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga feels like a direct response to that – and the appropriate next step for a video game series that has evolved so much since the very first edition, released nearly 15 years back.
The Skywalker Saga demo shown at E3 2019 confirmed that large open worlds will be making a return here, so you’ll need to reference the Galaxy Map in order to navigate between them.
The multitude of map locations and story progressions put the reigns of the game in the hands of the player, and we’re absolutely living for it.
The Skywalker Saga is set to release on 20 October 2020.
In the past, it has been pretty hard to pin down a pattern in the release dates of previous Lego video games, but we can rest easy now that it’s been announced officially!
The game will release for the Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
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.
The Skywalker Saga is set for release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch, so you can now enjoy the long list of playable characters and sharp visuals on your handheld device.
Head on over to our Lego Star Wars: Nintendo Switch article for all the details.
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.
In celebration of Star Wars Day we get a look at the artwork!
The cover brings all parts of the Skywalker Saga together in beautiful Lego style.
Obviously Darth Vader looms large, but Rey, Kylo Ren, BB8, and others all get their place in it.
