The game was announced back at E3 2019, and was set to be released sometime in 2020. It got delayed during that year, and an expected release date was held off until Spring 2021. After many setbacks, the game was delayed for the third time, until it finally secured the April 2022 release window.
Check out details on the game below.
“This epic retelling of the legendary saga with fresh LEGO humor includes a new third-person perspective, new combat mechanics for visceral in-game action, iconic ships built brick by brick, and the fan-favorite, Mumble Mode. The behind-the-scenes video documents the collaboration between the partners to deliver something special for fans, along with developer insight into some of the Easter eggs players will find in the game, such as Pew Pew Mode, which humorously replaces all weapon sound effects with phonetic mouth noises that simulate blasters, lightsabers and more!”
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is out April 5, 2022, for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
