LEGO Star Wars : The Skywalker Saga Get Gameplay at Gamescom
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga aims to be one of the biggest and best LEGO games out there. We'll get the first look at gameplay tomorrow.
Over the last few days, video game presenter extraordinaire Geoff Keighley has slowly been teasing some of the games coming to Gamescom Opening Night Live on Thursday. The main man himself took to Twitter today to reveal that tomorrow we’ll be getting our first look at gameplay in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. With the game potentially coming out in October, it’s about time we see it in action.
Of course, this being a LEGO Star Wars game, you probably know what to expect. The franchise has kind of hit on a perfect formula for its audience and only makes incremental changes from one game to another. That said, in terms of content, this game is packed with stuff to do.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga takes players through all nine movies in the main Star Wars arc. During the journey, players will meet “nearly 500” of their favorite universe characters. The roster includes everyone from Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader to everyone’s favorite spice runner Zorii Bliss.
Unlike with most LEGO games, players don’t have to take on a linear story. Instead, they can choose to tackle any of the nine movies in whichever order. There’s also a slate of hub worlds to explore that move players from mission to mission.
As someone who lives with a person who’s done everything there is to do in every LEGO game released, The Skywalker Saga is a bit terrifying. On paper, there’s so much packed in that I might never see my PS4 again.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga drops later this year on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see all of the news out of Gamescom Opening Night Live.
