This is especially exciting as we haven’t heard much about Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker saga since August 2020 where we got a gameplay reveal trailer. This is possibly due to the game being delayed in April 2021 to a new currently unspecified date, which could be revealed during Gamescom 2021. 

If a new Lego Star Wars game is news to you, here’s what you need to know. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker saga is the sixth installment in the Lego Star Wars series and is being developed by TT Games. The latest game will incorporate elements from all nine mainline Star Wars films from A New Hope through to The Rise of Skywalker and is expected to contain all the Lego fun found in all the previous titles. 

The game will also contain a lot of extra elements, for example, it has been confirmed that Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga lets you play as 300 characters including Babu Frik. Not only this but it was also confirmed that players will be able to play the games in any order they want to. So whether you prefer to experience Star Wars in release order, chronological order, or a completely random order, this game will have you covered. 

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will hopefully get a new release date soon however we do know that it will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
