Star Wars is of course one of media’s most enduring, and most beloved, franchises. With such a history, it makes sense that it contains an enormous number of characters, from Luke Skywalker to those little Porgs from The Last Jedi. The LEGO Star Wars games have always contained a large roster of playable heroes and villains, but with this year’s The Skywalker Saga, it seems TT Games is taking things to the next level.
New information in the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine has it that the game will feature 800 characters, 300 of which will be playable. That’s got to be some sort of record, right? The game covers all nine of the main motion pictures, so you’ll be playing as everyone from Qui-Gon Jinn to Kylo Ren.
However, you won’t have to play through the saga in a set order. The game is non-linear, allowing you to take on quests in an order of your choosing. It’s also open world, and will feature 28 locations to find and explore. It’s sounding pretty huge, then.
There’s no firm release date yet, but the latest official word is Spring 2021, so it shouldn’t be too much further away. Are you excited to play LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on PlayStation 5 and PS4? Whip out those lightsabers in the comments section below.
