LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga gameplay trailer revealed!
After announcing the title at last summer’s E3, Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have unveiled a full gameplay trailer for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which is set to hit shelves sometime in early 2021! The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
The latest title in TT’s gaming franchise will see everything revamped from their early titles, with players being able to start from any of the nine Skywalker Saga episodes instead of chronological order, each episode featuring five missions for a total of 45 levels and combat being revamped so that lightsaber wielders will now have a variety of combos with light and heavy attacks and Force moves while blaster characters will have an over-the-shoulder camera akin to many third-person shooters.
In addition, the structure for the game’s hub will follow in the footsteps of the previous title, The Force Awakens, in which it will not be isolated to one areas but instead a wide range of fully explorable planets including Coruscant, Naboo, Tatooine, Geonosis, Kamino, Utapau, Kashyyk, 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.
Ships will also have freely explorable areas in the hub, such as Star Destroyers and the Death Star, and players can experience random encounters in the hub, such as an Imperial Star Destroyer jumping out of hyperspace and sending fleets of TIE fighters after the player, who can then engage in an optional dogfight.
Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which will feature nearly 500 characters, is scheduled for a Spring 2021 release for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5 and Xbox One and Series X.
