Warner Bros. Games has now confirmed the release date for Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which launches for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on April 5th.


We've also got a new gameplay overview trailer, which you can check out above. "In what will be the biggest and most visually striking Lego Star Wars game yet, players will relive the epic story of all nine films of the Skywalker Saga like never before with new combat mechanics, a wide range of characters and character classes, a vast galaxy to explore, and much more," says Warner Bros. Games's Kyle Moffatt. "From the idyllic grassy hills of Naboo to the desert dunes of Jakku, the Lego Star Wars galaxy is available to discover and play in, and it all starts with picking the trilogy of your choice to begin the journey."

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga features over 300 playable characters (including Luke Skywalker, Rey, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and more) as well as over 100 vehicles (such as the Millennium Falcon and Imperial TIE fighters) and 23 planets. "Exploration rewards players as they uncover Kyber Bricks which unlock new features and upgraded abilities across a range of character classes, including Jedi, Hero, Dark Side, Villain, Scavenger, Scoundrel, Bounty Hunter, Astromech Droid, and Protocol Droid," Moffatt explains. "New blaster controls and mechanics allow players to aim with precision and take cover to plot their next move or utilize the skills of a Jedi by wielding a lightsaber and using the power of The Force."
