Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga covers a lot of ground, literally and figuratively, but it's exactly developer TT Games' ambition to pack all three trilogies into one title that made many players eagerly await its release date since its 2019 reveal.
As 2022 rolls in, we finally have a set release date for Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which sees it coming out during a period that, at the moment, doesn't look particularly crowded with many big releases.
Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer TT Games have confirmed that Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga's release date is set for April 5, 2022, putting an end to the rather lengthy wait that fans had to endure.

In melee combat, you'll be able to employ different combos and counters that vary between characters, while ranged weapons can be aimed using an over-the-shoulder perspective, enemies reacting depending on where you hit them.
You can follow the story, reliving moments from the movies infused with the series' trademark humor, as well as travel from planet to planet, completing side quests. Aside from land battles, you'll also get to pilot iconic ships like Slave I or the Millennium Falcon and take part in space battles.
The title also features levels that let you choose the route you take towards your objectives, upgradeable skills, as well as lots of collectibles to track down.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be available on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
