Everyone's 'Moving To New Zealand' Again For LEGO Star Wars On Xbox

Here we go again! That old trick where you can "move to New Zealand" in order to play games early has cropped up once again for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, with lots of people talking about it on social media right now.

This is because the game is seemingly launching midnight local time in New Zealand, which lines up as 5am PT, 8am ET and 1pm BST on the 4th, so some players could be getting access pretty much an entire day early.

If you want to know how to switch to New Zealand on Xbox, here's how you do it:

How To 'Move To New Zealand' For LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga On Xbox

  1. Sign in to your Xbox console.
  2. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  3. Select Settings > All Settings > System > Language & location.
  4. Select your new location from the Location list, and then select Restart now.

Before you do this, we can't stress enough that switching regions on Xbox is something to do at your own risk. It's something Xbox owners have been doing for a long time, but there's always the potential of getting punished for it.

Keep in mind that Microsoft also advises changing regions can potentially lock you out of changing to another one for a period of three months, although we've never seen any reports of this, so you should be OK.

Of course, there's also the option of waiting a bit longer for the release in your region, which might make more sense. It seems that LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will launch at midnight in each timezone going into Tuesday, April 5th.
