The game is now slated to arrive on April 5, 2022.

You can take a look at the gameplay overview below:

As the name implies, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga takes place across all nine mainline Star Wars films, with over 20 planets to explore and over 300 characters to unlock, making this the biggest LEGO Star Wars game ever in multiple ways.

When LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga arrives, it'll be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
