With TT Games having described LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga as “the most ambitious LEGO game yet,” it would be hard to NOT talk about everything that’s been mentioned so far. With a steady flux of news coming out, we shall be regularly posting articles, as well as updating this page (which will be sticky’d) to provide as an overall info hub.
As mentioned in the trailer, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features all nine episodes of the main Star Wars saga, including The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker, both of which are appearing in their LEGO game debut. In our fact sheet that was provided by TT Games, they say “players can dive into the Skywalker saga and access any of the nine saga films right away in any order they choose. They can direct where to go and how to play.” This confirms that players will be able to explore the movies in ANY ORDER they wish to, which includes bouncing between campaigns halfway through.
Unfortunately, no news have been confirmed on the status of movies such as Solo: A Star Wars Story and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, along with TV shows such as The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars, Rebels, The Freemaker Adventures, and the new Resistance Series. We here at Bricks To Life have heard rumors of the two recent anthology films appearing in the game, and also possibly some TV series content, but we cannot confirm that they are in the game, and we do not know if these worlds will appear in the base game or through a DLC season pass.
The Open World
Being a new LEGO game installment, we will see many new open world areas, most likely similar to the planets we saw in LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The fact sheet confirms that “players can visit legendary locales from their favorite Star Wars films such as the desert of Geonosis, to the swamps of Dagobah and the snowfields of Starkiller Base. They can then travel through space and revisit any planet at any time. Expansive hub areas based on memorable settings from the films offer fun quests and more to explore.” We also can see in the screenshots that players will be able to travel to areas such as Tatooine, Hoth, and Endor. Knowing the versatility and environmental diversity of the Star Wars universe, we can also expect areas such as Naboo, Kamino, Coruscant, Jakku, and Takodana, given their extreme importance to the stories of their respective movies.
As anyone who has spent any time online will probably know, many fans want The Skywalker Saga to contain NO voice acting, opting for the original classic grunts and sighs. Although TT has said that “all the unforgettable moments from the entire saga have been retold in new, fun-filled, hilarious LEGO humor,” there has been no deconfirmation of voice acting appearing in the game. While the trailer does not contain any voice acting, it is worth pointing out that previous LEGO game trailers in the past have opted for a lack of voice acting, and it also worth mentioning that NO LEGO game in 8 years has declined to use voice acting, with the last instance being 2011’s LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7.
Characters, Release Date, and Other Info
As expected, The Skywalker Saga will contain MANY characters, from all sorts of areas of the Star Wars universe. We can easily estimate for there to be anywhere from 250 to 300 characters based off of the size and scale of this title. TT has stated that there are “hundreds of playable characters from throughout the galaxy and every era of the saga,” and that “players can play on the light or dark side of the Force, master combat, and take control of ships and vehicles for empowering adventures throughout the galaxy.” Could this mean that bounty hunter missions or alternate villain levels could be returning, or is this just a nod towards the playability of Sith and other villainous characters? Only time will tell.
As expected but always worth mentioning is the obvious family friendly content of the game. TT says that “this is an imaginative and funny LEGO gaming experience appropriate for kids of all ages. It is an accessible entry point into the Star Wars galaxy that is easy for a younger audience to pick up and play while still deep enough for anyone to enjoy.”
Finally, no release date has been given outside of the year “2020,” but we can expect that it will be released earlier on in the year, such as January or February. Although LEGO has released same-day movie titles such as LEGO Jurassic World, various Dimensions titles (notably the Dimensions and LEGO Batman Movie story packs), and LEGO The Incredibles, they have declined on some titles due to spoilers being released early.
