LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga developer video shines a light on the game’s content and sense of freedom

A new behind-the-scenes video highlighting the breadth of content and the feeling of freedom has been released for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

In the video, the development team shares the process of bringing the entire Star Wars galaxy to life using versions of iconic locations found in all nine Skywalker Saga films.

The video also showcases the work done to implement weathering effects, differentiate sky colors and draw attention to details not seen in previous LEGO video games.

The Skywalker Saga lets you explore hub worlds from familiar locations like Naboo, Endor, Tatooine, and the cloudy city of Bespin, and unlock new vehicles and playable characters, including Mama the Hutt, Yaddle, and Babu Frik .

You’ll also collect Kyber Bricks on the various planets, as they’re used as currency to upgrade characters, ranging from upgrading Force abilities to increasing blaster firepower.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is set to release on April 5 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.

If you plan to pre-order digitally, you’ll receive early access to the Trooper Character Pack on release day. The pack will be available a month later for those who purchase the Character Collection Pass or it can be purchased separately.

Purchase of the digital version of the game will also include Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi as a playable character and will not be available for purchase alone. The physical version of the Deluxe Edition will include an exclusive LEGO Star Wars minifigure, Luke Skywalker with the Blue Milk mustache.
