There is less than a month to go until the long-awaited LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga releases, and Tt Games has debuted a stunning behind the scenes look at the game.
The video showcases a number of new features which explain exactly why the game experienced as many delays as it did. For one, characters will now be getting sun tans. Yes, you read that correctly. Mini-figs walking through the desert will get sun tans and have grains of sand accumulate over their clothes and weapons. We already knew that all nine major films will be the focal point of the game, with each one of those films divided over five (5) levels. Side quests, however, are a new addition to the LEGO franchise.
Many players will be familiar with blasting through the levels in story mode, only to take their time in free play afterward to earn all of the unlocks. Now, we’ll be able to do side quests for NPC’s. These will take us to varying locations, meaning we may start on Hoth and have to travel to Tattoine to complete it. There are 23 planets in the game to explore on top of the main story. The base game is the biggest yet with over 300 characters, in addition to newly installed flying vehicles and more. For reference, the current biggest LEGO game character count wise is LEGO Marvel’s Avengers with around 260 including DLC. This means The Skywalker Saga will feature over 20% more characters than its predecessor with the base game alone.
Take a look at the video below, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga releases April 5 on all platforms.
