Following the successful release last March, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga offers a little more content with the arrival of a brand new DLC. We will explain everything to you.
[Mis à jour le jeudi 5 mai 2022 à 11h11] The love affair between Lego and video games began a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. Remember, it was 2005 and Lego Star Wars 1 and 2 came on the market to thunderous applause. The adaptation of George Lucas’ film in plastic stone sauce was immediately a great success, paving the way for many other adaptations from its developer TT Games studio. Since then, water has flowed under the bridge, and the British developer has once again returned to the Star Wars universe with a more than ambitious game, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, or the adaptation in Lego from the nine films of the famous franchise. And the title is in the process of offering a brand new DLC, dedicated to fans of the universe. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Lego video games have always been based on a fairly simple principle: to make us relive the best scenes from pop culture movies, characters or series, all in a universe built solely of small plastic blocks. And in this exercise, TT Games is more than a veteran already in command of the first two Lego games ever released, Lego Star Wars I and Lego Star Wars II. And for seventeen years, TT Games has been the origin of all Lego games. Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings … All the major franchises have been recreated by the British studio, which boasts more than thirty Lego video games to the credit. The Skywalker saga will allow us to relive the three Star Wars trilogies, from Obi-Wan’s muscular apprenticeship to the emergence of the first order, and this in the order you desire. On the gameplay side, we find the classic elements of the formula, which mix exploration, action, adventure and puzzle, all playable with one or two players.
In terms of gameplay, the game allows you to review the story of each movie in the order you want, without any particular limitation. You will also have the opportunity to replay each level with new characters, to unlock new parts of the level and find collectibles. If you were worried about not being able to play one of your favorite characters in the Skywalker Saga, you could not go wrong. The game contains no less than 300 unlockable and playable characters at all levels, as required by the tradition of Lego games. We will find our favorite protagonists at different times in their lives as well as all the more obscure side characters that forty years and nine movies have been able to give us. A diversity that has never been so great in a Lego game.
Controller in hand, TT Games has also added a few elements to satisfy a slightly more adult audience. Blaster-swinging characters can now hide and shoot from cover, while lightsaber combat is performed through various combinations, feints and powers, bringing a little more diversity to the ultimately quite simple gameplay of the Lego game formula. . We also find in this new release graphics that have never been so beautiful in a Lego game; the environment responds to the player’s actions on a par with the effects of light as matter. In addition, TT Games has decided to give the player a little more freedom by giving them hubs that they can freely explore between each story mission. We move for the best away from the level after level formula to allow the player to move from planet to planet as he wants via a map of the galaxy to explore or re-explore levels he has already traveled to solve puzzles, perform side tasks or search for items. This principle also applies in space, where the player can move, explore and fight between each planet. On the character side, TT Games adds a small role-playing game page, as each character will have a small tree of skills and powers to unlock thanks to Kyber crystals hidden throughout the galaxy.
Lego games have always been a strong supporter of two-player co-op games. Traditionally, this collaboration takes place through the traditional split screen, and The Skywalker Saga will be no exception. Specifically, if you can share one side of the couch with a friend or family member, it’s perfect, on the other hand, it’s impossible to connect to the same game from two different locations, since no online multiplayer mode is scheduled to play currently on any platform.
Let’s start with the most important information, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available on our gaming platforms page Tuesday, March 5, 2022.
