LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga in an E3 preview — all films in a one giant Lego game.View All Reviews
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is the next installment in the LEGO Star Wars video game series. It is scheduled for release in 2020 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
With Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Warner Bros. has announced the latest building blocks title as part of E3. Instead of a single film, the game deals with all nine installations of the franchise — including Episode IX, which will premiere at the end of 2019. We’ve already had a look at the upcoming gameplay and can tell you what to expect from the biggest Lego Star Wars ever.
Lego adaptations of successful feature films have not only been around for a while, Star Wars itself have also been the subject of several such games. As part of E3 2019, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has now been announced, which is expected to set new standards in terms of Lego games. Not only are all the main films of the franchise included this time, but you can also change the camera perspective.
Additionally, the player no longer gets individual mission levels and has a lot of different characters to choose from. We had the opportunity to see the gameplay of the Skywalker Saga live and will tell you what to expect from the upcoming Star Wars game.
Third-person and Open World
With Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the game series is reinventing itself in many ways. The developers not only turn away from the tunnel-like levels but also give the game a new look thanks to the shifted camera perspective. Instead of following the action from reasonably fixed angles, The Skywalker Saga uses a classic third-person view, in which we can look over our character’s shoulder while he is taking care of business.
Incidentally, in this Lego series, you will not go through one linear level after the next. The Skywalker Saga gives us an open world to a certain extent — actually several of them because the game includes all nine Star Wars films. You can select them individually and then dive into the respective story. Each movie also consists of several areas that are available to you in the form of the walk-in regions. If you play your way through the story, areas that were initially closed begin to open up.
It is like a small open world, in which lots of different main and side missions are located. The action, which was very linear in previous parts, is more varied here, and you can enjoy more freedom. You can’t play the end of a movie before the beginning, but you can switch back and forth between the films, as you please.
Different Heroes in Dynamic Battles
In The Skywalker Saga, you can switch between the various heroes of the universe at any time. You just stumbled around as C3-PO, the next moment you fire away as Chewbacca with the laser crossbow in your hands. In the upcoming Lego Star Wars, pretty much everyone who has a name was included — whether from the new, the old, or the unpopular trilogies. All characters have different skills, which not only ensures variety but also helps with diverse tasks. For example, C3-PO can understand foreign languages, while the Jedi can easily remove difficult obstacles.
The mixture of different skills in connection with the new third-person perspective makes battles much more dynamic than in the previous Lego games. At the same time, the confrontations are also less hectic and chaotic.
Picturesque Landscapes Instead of Blocks
Not everything in the Lego games is built out of Legos. In the earlier parts, the surroundings were mostly detached from the blocky architecture. That is also the case in The Skywalker Saga, and it catches your eye instantly. It gave the developers the freedom to make Lego Star Wars a little more beautiful. Instead of clumsy textures, you are throwing bricks around a picturesque setting.
