This is the Lego Star Wars game you've been searching for! Eventually.
From today, fans of LEGO Star Wars games can begin to play through all nine of the iconic films that make up The Skywalker Saga, all in glorious LEGO fun form.
Ever since its initial announcement back in 2019, and through all of the subsequent delays from the originally planned “Coming 2020” release to the revised and then also delayed “Spring 2021”, fans of LEGO and Star Wars have been waiting patiently for this release. Now there’s no chance it’ll be delayed again, and fans can charge their lightsabers and get ready to travel to the LEGO version of a galaxy far, far away. And of course, the big questions need considering too: Dark Side or Light Side? Empire or Rebellion? Original Trilogy, Prequels, or Sequels first?
Featuring levels from all the Saga films, plus character DLC from standalone films like Solo, and shows like The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch, the game is set to become the ultimate LEGO Star Wars experience.
Nine films worth of content, tons of characters (over 300 of which are playable!), and a multitude of rideable creatures, and flyable and drivable vehicles, all of which will be available at launch, means fans won’t be short of things to do in game.
Unlike previous LEGO games where players advance through a linear story, players of LSW: TSS can choose to start the game from any one of the three Skywalker saga trilogies and complete them in any order they wish.
Each of the nine Episodes has five story missions, making a total of 45 levels, contrasting from the six levels per episode in previous LEGO games.
Combat has also been revamped from previous titles. Lightsaber wielders can now use a variety of combos with light attacks, heavy attacks, and Force moves. Characters using blasters will shoot from an over-the-shoulder view, much like the angle featured in many third-person shooter games. Both Jedi and Sith characters will have new ways to use the Force in combat too.
Also new are the upgradeable character classes. Find Kyber Bricks and use them to boost your characters abilities and skills.
There are over twenty explorable worlds and a number of famous locations from around the Star Wars galaxy. These will all be accessible from a central hub. Planets and moons confirmed to be explorable from the hub include Naboo, Tatooine, Coruscant, Kamino, Geonosis, Kashyyyk, Utapau, Mustafar, Yavin 4, Hoth, Dagobah, Bespin, Endor, Jakku, Takodana, D'Qar, Starkiller Base, Ahch-To, Cantonica, Crait, Ajan Kloss, Pasaana, Kijimi, Kef Bir, and Exegol. Many ships will have freely explorable areas in the hub as well, such as Star Destroyers and the Death Star.
Random encounters will also happen in the game's hub. For example, an Imperial Star Destroyer could 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.
In addition to the complete base game, a number of Character Pack DLC have been announced. These will be released and available for separate purchase at or after release. These are all included in the Deluxe Edition.
