After four hugely successful LEGO Star Wars games spanning the entire timeline of the galaxy far, far away, TT Games is preparing to release its most ambitious game yet with The Skywalker Saga

As the title suggests, the upcoming Star Wars game will adapt all nine movies of The Skywalker Saga with five missions per film, forming a massive total of 45 levels. While much of the saga has been adapted before, this is the first time The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker have been made playable in LEGO form.

It's safe to say the fourth LEGO Star Wars title will be by far the biggest yet, as players are treated to over 300 playable characters, an expansive open-world galaxy to explore, and a brand-new combat system.

The last official look at the game was revealed last year during Gamescom 2020, but after a long wait TT Games has finally revealed a new trailer from the Star Wars game.


During the digital Opening Night Live event for Gamescom 2021, TT Games has officially revealed a new look at the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga title:

Additionally, the developer officially announced the LEGO title has been delayed to Spring 2022 following a recent shift from its original Spring 2021 release window.


The second gameplay trailer for The Skywalker Saga made it clear that the latest LEGO gaming adventure is by far the biggest yet. A brief look at the game's galaxy map confirmed the inclusion of 25 different worlds to explore, meaning there ought to be plenty to keep players busy outside the main story missions.

One thing that should excite veteran LEGO players is the new combat system present in dueling and shooting encounters. The family-friendly franchise has often been criticized in the past for constantly repeating its unique gameplay formula, something which will be helped by the recent shake-up.

The Skywalker Saga looks to feature a drastic switch-up in camera angle as it ditches the classic top-down view for an over-the-shoulder camera to more closely resemble other third-person action titles.

Naturally, many fans will have already experienced the first seven films of the saga in LEGO form, but the new gameplay changes will make for a totally different experience. While The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker may arguably be the most divisive films in the saga, the humorous nature of the LEGO games will certainly allow many to enjoy Rey's journey a little bit more.

Additionally, TT Games' upcoming title will be the first LEGO project to release on next-gen consoles. The enhanced technology has clearly allowed the developers to craft the most visually stunning LEGO adventure yet, while improved console speeds will help when traversing the expansive open world.
