LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is officially available for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The new video game notably covers the nine core films of the Star Wars franchise thus far, as the name implies, which means that it is a frankly huge endeavor to take on compared to previous LEGO video games. Alongside its release, Warner Bros. Games, TT Games, and Lucasfilm Games have released a new launch trailer for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga that offers fans a taste of what to expect.
In the new launch trailer, several iconic moments from the movies are recreated with typical LEGO flair. That includes, but is not limited to, Rey’s desert jump, podracing, Ewoks “helping” out, and more. Even if you don’t care for a particular movie from the Skywalker Saga, there’s plenty of other moments to relive. You can check out the full launch trailer for yourself below:
“In its quest to be the ‘definitive’ LEGO Star Wars game, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga tries to do too much and suffers as a result,” ComicBook.com’s own review of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga reads. “While the game offers players a variety of different game modes and level types, there’s nothing that it truly excels in. The puzzles are OK, the vehicles are OK, the missions are OK, and the story set pieces are good but not great. Honestly, if not for the fact that the game still has that crucial LEGO Star Wars charm and humor, a lot of players would probably be very frustrated with the game experience.”
As noted above, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is now available for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The previously announced Character Collection DLC is available in part with The Mandalorian Season 1 and Solo: A Star Wars Story Character Packs as well as The Classic Characters and The Trooper Pack. The various DLC packs can be purchased separately or as part of the larger Season Pass.
