It's happening! After years of waiting, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has finally been treated to a release date of April 5th, 2022, along with a brand-new six-minute gameplay overview trailer which you can watch above.

And wow. Based on what we can see in the trailer here, this is shaping up to be not only the best LEGO game yet, but also the most expansive by far. The combat looks varied and highly enjoyable, the planets seem vast and full of things to do, and there's even a "Mumble Mode" to unlock if you prefer the classic style of LEGO characters with mumbling voices rather than being fully voiced as they are in more modern titles. The whole thing just looks so good.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been totally built from the ground-up and spans all nine mainline films with over three hundred unlockable characters. It's available to pre-order now from the Xbox Store in both Standard and Deluxe Editions, with the latter including seven DLC packs in a Character Collection bundle.

Want to play as a Jedi? A Sith? Rebel, bounty hunter, or droid? LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features hundreds of playable characters from throughout the galaxy. Whether on land or in space, a variety of vehicles are yours to command. Jump to lightspeed in the Millennium Falcon, fly the T-47 Airspeeder and battle TIE fighters in Resistance X-wings… it's the ULTIMATE LEGO Star Wars experience.
