Fans will have to wait a bit longer to play LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga – but given its scope, it looks likely to be worth the wait.
TT Games has been hard at work on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for several years, with the epic, nine movie spanning game originally expected to land in 2020. The game is now set to debut in spring 2022, as revealed in this new trailer that shares a taste of gameplay.
As well as playing through the movies in the traditional way that fans have loved since 2005’s LEGO Star Wars, this new entry in the series – or should that be saga? – allows players to go hopping from planet to planet, exploring the galaxy far, far away.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be available on including Xbox Series X, PlayStation5, PlayStation4, Nintendo Switch system and PC. If you pre-order now there are exclusive editions to be had and unique DLC.

Here’s some spiel from the official announcement:
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features the biggest roster of playable characters in the LEGO Star Wars series and players will engage in new ways of combat as they wield lightsabers, fire blasters, and chain different attacks with the greatest legends from every era of the Skywalker saga. Players can fight against the forces of evil as favorite characters such as Luke Skywalker™, Rey™, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Finn, BB-8 and a legion of other heroes. The greatest space and land vehicles are also available to command. Players can jump to lightspeed in the Millennium Falcon to outrun Imperial starships, battle First Order TIE fighters in Resistance X-wings, or podrace on Tatooine. Players will be able to travel through hyperspace and explore planets that can be unlocked during their adventures. From the jungle moon of Ajan Kloss to the vibrant, city-covered planet Coruscant, the LEGO Star Wars galaxy is yours to discover and play in.
