LEGO Star Wars: La Saga Skywalker, the ambitious platform, action and shooting adventure that will recreate with the humor of the LEGO videogames the top nine movies of the series, already has a release date: April 5, 2022 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series and Xbox One. The title was announced at E3 2019 and had an indefinite delay. Warner Bros. Games has published a gameplay six minutes where they detail how to play what they describe as “the game of LEGO Star Wars most extensive and visually stunning to date.
Players will be able to choose where to start the adventure from among the nine movies: A new hope, The Empire Strikes Back, return of the jedi, the phantom menace, Attack of the clones, Revenge of the Sith, The Force Awakens, the last jedi Y the rise of skywalker. The order of the missions is linear with objectives that can be achieved in different ways, but when you reach a new planet (from the hills of Naboo to the dunes of Jakku) you will be able to choose between accessing the next objective or explore freely to find other assignments, activities and secrets.
Among those secrets that will be obtained by overcoming platform sections and looking carefully at the scenarios are the Kyber, which will unlock new features and improve skills of the more than 300 characters (including Leia, Yoda, Boba Fett, Darth Maul, Poe…) to choose from several classes with their own powers: Jedi, hero, dark side, villain, scavenger, scoundrel, bounty hunter, astromech droid, and protocol droid.
The combat system in general has been improved. In the melee there will be combos and counter attacks whose execution represent the personality of the character being handled. In combat with ranged weapons, in addition to point the camera at the shoulder, players will be able to use toppings. Furthermore, in space travel there will be aerial battles where ships like TIE fighters, X-Wings, and of course, the Millennium Falcon will be handled.
Along with the announcement of the launch date, the reservation campaign will be opened shortly in digital format on PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Nintendo eShop and Steam. The reservations will have early access to the exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi classic and the soldier character pack from April 5. Said pack will be available one month after the premiere independently and for those who purchase the character collection, a season pass that includes all seven character packs. The physical version of the Deluxe Edition will include a Luke Skywalker LEGO minifigure with blue milk.
