LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga: Gameplay - Galaxy Map, Open-world, Combat, Screenshots & more

Fans of the Lego Star Wars franchise will be thrilled with the next title making its way onto consoles for 20 October 2020 and with the most unique take on the game yet, players are in for a monumental treat.

It might be hard to digest that the first LEGO Star Wars instalment arrived around 15 years ago 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.

Players can start the game at any point in the Star Wars timeline, so jump in anywhere between New Hope and The Rise of Skywalker.

This new way of exploring looks set to make this instalment the most thrilling and immersive yet.

Here is everything you need to know about the open-world galaxy map and gameplay that is set to revolutionise how you play LEGO: Star Wars games.

The player can go anywhere on Tattooine or simply blast off into space and visit any other planet that is unlocked.

Like in previous LEGO Star Wars games the iconic side quests and collectables exist, after all it wouldn't be a great LEGO: Star Wars game without the extras to ramp up the re-playability factor.
