An announcement last week confirmed that some exciting reveals will be happening at the forthcoming D23 Expo’s Disney & Marvel Games Showcase. The panel is due to take place on September 9 and will be available to watch as a livestream from the show at 6 pm BST/1 pm PT/4 pm ET.
The press release for the event states that, ‘The digital showcase will feature incredible new content from Disney & Pixar Games, Marvel Games, Lucasfilm Games, and 20th Century Games. In addition to all-new announcements, fans can expect new reveals from titles including Disney Dreamlight Valley, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.’
This will of course be of huge interest to fans of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, especially considering that the game was released back in April and all of its various DLC packs and any extra characters have already dropped. Aside from a few sporadic patch updates for the title that have addressed some of the game’s many glitches, the announcement of ‘new reveals’ for the title gives us hope for potential additional content. With that in mind, here’s what we want to see next from TT Games’ biggest LEGO title to date:
New playable levels
Whilst LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is certainly a massive game that covers a sprawling galaxy far, far away, there are still some scenes from the nine main films that aren’t featured as playable levels. One of these is the Death Star II space battle, which has appeared in previous LEGO Star Wars games, but is only shown as a quick cutscene in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
In addition, we’re keeping our lightsabers crossed for TT Games to add in playable levels from other Star Wars films and TV shows such as Rogue One, Solo, The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and The Bad Batch to complement existing DLC character packs.
With a whole universe of potential characters to choose from, there are numerous familiar faces we want to see added to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. These could include character packs for Star Wars: Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Clone Wars, Rebels, the short-lived Resistance and even the LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation special.
Likewise, it would be great to see the former digital pre-order exclusive Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi character being added for free to round out the full playable roster. Heck, why not throw in versions of the new festive minifigures from the upcoming 75340 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar too?
All glitches fixed
We’ve previously reported on LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’s numerous glitches, bugs and downright bizarre behaviour. Although a handful of minor software patch updates for the title have been released by TT Games since its launch, there are still some annoying errors that niggle players.
However, an update this week did in fact manage to address a number of longstanding issues with the game. These included removing small yellow dots which were still showing above unlocked items (even after they’ve been obtained), making Rey’s yellow lightsaber the same size as every other lightsaber in the game and other lingering glitches.
This feature was initially reported (via Twitter) to be included in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga in the early days of the title’s development. Although character customisation was available as an option in a number of previous TT Games’ LEGO titles, it was noticeably absent from this release.
Online co-op mode
Another feature long-requested by fans has been an online co-player mode, although this is probably unlikely to be added to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga at this stage. Some existing TT Games titles have included this option and a previous report did suggest that it was in the works for the title too.
For now, we suggest you manage your expectations for any potential future LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga content accordingly and we’ll be providing follow-up stories once the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase has taken place.
