The LEGO Star Wars franchise is set to return to console in 2020, and The Skywalker Saga will become the sixth addition to a series best known for its stunning visuals and clunky aesthetic.

We already know that players will be able to jump in anywhere across the 3 trilogies – so that’s anywhere between A New Hope and The Rise of Skywalker.

However, the latest announcement trailer has revealed some things that we didn’t expect.

Official 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.

Release Date

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.

Characters

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.

Players can play as Luke Skywalker, Rey, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Finn, BB-8 and a legion of other heroes, or turn to the dark side as Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Kylo Ren, and more.

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.
