Unsurprisingly, this artwork plays up the multi-era aspect of the game, spotlighting Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker in the centre, with the sequel trilogy characters directly below them. A scene from the prequel trilogy is taking place on the left and a scene from the classic trilogy is depicted on the right.
Covering all nine episodes in the core storyline, the game promises the usual blend of button bashing fights, problem solving and character switching, with a new open world component. LEGO Star Wars sets released later this year will include unlock codes to open content within the game.
Here is the title’s official synopsis:
Friends and family can dive right into their favourite saga film and play through memorable Star Wars moments, reimagined with LEGO fun and humour. Players can start at the beginning with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, begin the original trilogy with Star Wars: A New Hope, or launch right into Star Wars: The Last Jedi or Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, both of which are making their LEGO Star Wars game debut. From the desert of Geonosis, to the swamps of Dagobah, to the snowfields of Starkiller Base – players will have the power to revisit any planet, at any time, in any order they wish. The entire galaxy is available to discover and play in.
The last LEGO Star Wars video game was The Force Awakens, released in 2016.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in cinemas now.
