Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga may well be the best Lego Star Wars game ever made. TT Games’s Dawn McDiarmid has confirmed some new details about the sequel that make it much bigger than expected.
The legacy of these games deserves that perfection and developer TT Games is trying to deliver. It has not been an easy journey though. Part of that tough journey has been adding more than 300 playable characters across dozens of levels. But there’s also a “more in-depth quest system,” which lets players get more into the store beyond just collecting bricks. And if you’re into a more robust crafting and upgrade system, the game has that too.
As players adventure across the nearly two-dozen planets, they will be able to engage with both cosmetic unlocks as well as a completely redone character upgrade system that allows for substantial changes to gameplay.
The video game sequel was originally intended to launch on just PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2020. And now it has been suffering through a few pushbacks, and now landing on next-gen consoles.
There is some bad news though, as the game won’t be entirely ideal on next-gen hardware. At least not on day one that is—ray tracing, 3D audio and the DualSense controller’s full functionality and more will all be missing—because the developer still needs more time to polish things. When that missing stuff does get added, the game may well be perfect.
Right now, the game is due on Switch, PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. The date for the release of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has not been confirmed yet. If you want to check out more, check out the trailer below.
