Classic film has once again crossed paths with Lego in the new release Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which is the new action and adventure game released by Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros.
If you’re a fan of Star Wars, you might want to keep an eye out for the latest instalment in the Lego game series, which retells all nine films and features your favourite characters from another galaxy far, far away.
Where to buy Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
After a long time waiting, the game was released today, 5 April 2022, to the excitement of fans and players of previous games in the series.
The Skywalker Saga is available for purchase online from Steam, to pick up in person in shops such as Smyths or Argos, or from the Star Wars official website.
The game is playable on multiple platforms including Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch.
As well as this, starting today, downloadable character packs are steadily being released during the month for players to add to their game, all including memorable faces from spin-offs such as The Mandalorian and Rogue One.
What’s the premise of The Skywalker Saga?
The game is a call to classic-style Lego games but brings a new host of features for players to enjoy – including almost 400 playable characters.
Unlike previous instalments, which have been in chronological order, in The Skywalker Saga the player can advance through any trilogy at any time, with more levels than ever in each episode.
Despite developers confirming before its release that The Skywalker Saga wouldn’t have a character customisation tool like its predecessors, the game does allow players to revert from the new fully voice-acted game to ‘mumble mode’, which replaces the dialogue with the same noises and grunts used in previous Lego games.
What do people think so far?
Those who have played the game already have said that, despite being delayed for more than two years, the game is well worth the wait.
Fans playing via Steam will have to believe them, however, as some players have reported problems with loading the game despite buying it. They claim they have been met by error messages saying the game wouldn’t be available for several hours.
Hopefully everyone will experience the game for themselves soon and enjoy the iconic series retold through the fun and funny medium of Lego.
