I haven’t made a habit of counting the number of playable characters in the LEGO game series, and I’m not sure if I’m going to start either. But TT Games have kindly done the hard work for me by tallying a total of 800 characters in the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga game, meaning I don’t have to. What’s more, 300 of those are playable – so I don’t think you’ll be getting bored with this one.
The big number was published in the Official PlayStation Magazine. And shouldn’t come as much of surprise considering all nine movies are encompassed into its design. But the amount of playable choice probably is a bit surprising because that always takes more effort on the developer’s part. And there’s more.
In total, there will also be 28 locations awaiting discovery. Plus, countless quests for your enjoyment. But the story itself is non-linear and open world, so nothing has to be completed in a certain order – in other words, the galaxy really is your oyster!
The only negative I can conjure up is the lack of an official release date, with placeholders being present on nigh on every site. But with news dropping at an ever increasing pace, it shouldn’t be too long before we’re living the Skywalker Saga. So, keep your eyes peeled and lightsabers to hand for news of its launch window – I doubt we’ll be waiting much longer.
