Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an upcoming Lego-themed action-adventure video game. It is the sixth entry in TT Games' Lego Star Wars series.[1] The game is planned to have a fully voiced cast; however, there may be an option to disable dialogue in the game.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is a third-person action-adventure with an open world hub. Unlike previous Lego games in which players had to advance through the story in a linear order, players can now choose to start the game from any of the main Skywalker Saga episodes and complete them in any order they wish. Each episode has their own hub filled with planets featured prominently in each respective film that can be visited and explored. Each episode will have five story missions each, a total of 45 levels.

Combat has also been revamped, such as lightsaber fights now involving a variety of combos with light attacks, heavy attacks, and Force moves, and blaster characters having an over-the-shoulder camera angle featured in many third-person shooter games.

Random encounters will also happen in the game's hub. For example, an Imperial Star Destroyer will suddenly jump out of hyperspace and send a fleet of TIE Fighters after the player. Players can choose to engage in dogfights with them or continue onward to progress the story. The game will have more than 200 playable characters, though TT Games has said that number will change [3]

Premise[edit]

The game will adapt all 9 episodes of the Star Wars saga: The Phantom Menace (1999), Attack of the Clones (2002), Revenge of the Sith (2005), A New Hope (1977), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Return of the Jedi (1983), The Force Awakens (2015), The Last Jedi (2017) and The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

Development[edit]

The game was first teased to be in development by Lucasfilm sound editor Matthew Wood at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. An announcement trailer premiered at E3 2019 during Microsoft's press conference.

In order to avoid spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm has not shared any story details with TT Games at the time of development, giving the team only Episodes I through VIII to work with.
