The Force will awaken in LEGO form on October 20th
Rejoice Star Wars fans. Just days after TT Games released the glorious key art for the upcoming and hotly anticipated game LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the studio has finally revealed the release date for the game which was expected to hit the shelves sometime later this year. Well, it’s time to put the speculation to bed. Mark the date in your calendars because the legendary Skywalker Saga will be coming to a console near you – in LEGO form on October 20, 2020.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which will release on the Xbox One family of devices, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC, will span all nine Skywalker saga films, feature hundreds of playable characters and ships, and allow fans to start at any point in the timeline — a first for the franchise.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Encapsulating the game’s epic blend of the three Star Wars trilogies, the key art includes some of the greatest heroes and villains seen throughout the Skywalker saga. Players can fight against the forces of evil as favourite characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Rey, Finn, BB-8 and a legion of other heroes, or turn to the dark side as Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, and more.
Thrilling locales also serve as a backdrop to the action-packed key art as players can engage in some of the films’ most legendary battles. From the landmark start to the Clone Wars in the Battle of Geonosis to manning an Alliance snowspeeder at the Battle of Hoth to take on the Imperial’s treacherous ground forces, generations of Star Wars lore and fandom will collide in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
How cool is this? TT Games and LEGO have a long history of producing extraordinarily charming adaptations of these stories, often resulting in extreme hilarity; and with the developer expanding upon the entire Skywalker Saga, we could all be set for some seriously fun times in the LEGO galaxy far, far away…
What an awesome time to be a Star Wars fan!
