One of the most anticipated reveals at Gamescom 2021 was the delayed LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which will let you play through all nine of the Star Wars films.
Gamescom host Geoff Keighley teased a ‘world premiere new look’ at the game on his Twitter account and it meant that after the disappointment of the Xbox night on Tuesday, there was at least one good reason to tune in for the main show on Wednesday night.

The brand new video follows on from the gameplay trailer that was released on the opening night of Gamescom 2020. Back then, the game was slated for a Spring 2021 release but Star Wars fans had to watch as it slipped past this to an unspecified new release.
The new gameplay video will have fans salivating and the new release date was also dropped at Gamescom – you’ll have to wait until Spring 2022 to play the game now, a full year after the original release was promised.
In the meantime, this new gameplay trailer will have your lightsabre fingers twitching.
There weren’t any new details announced but what we do know about the game is that it’s the sixth instalment in the LEGO Star wars franchise and will feature all new renditions of all of the numbered Star Wars films.
You’ll be able to play as one of over 300 different Stars Wars characters and you can play through the films in the game in whatever order you think is right. So, whether you’re a stickler for original release dates or a fan of the chronological approach, developer TT games is happy to oblige.
