The new LEGO Star Wars experience is quickly approaching. In a darker side-oriented presentation for the game, a fresh trailer has been released to highlight the various enemies of Star Wars. Entitled “Darkness is Rising,” we’re invited to catch both cutscenes and gameplay for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
Feel the Family-Friendly Power of the Dark Side in Darkness is Rising
In its usual LEGO fashion for video games, the newest trailer for the Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga blends memorable moments from the movies with slapstick humor. We get to see our favorite villains in action, but we also get a few scenes where they’re totally out of character. Kylo Ren fights without a shirt on; a Stormtrooper says, “Pew, Pew,” the Emperor rocks out on a church piano and more. We won’t spoil more here in text because the footage is just something to experience.
The Darkness is Rising trailer also comes with the announcement of a Deluxe Edition for the LEGO Star Wars Saga. If you purchase this edition, you’ll receive the Character Collection Bundle, which comes with various characters from The Mandalorian, The Bad Batch, Rogue One, and several more from other films and shows. Additionally, consumers will also get a Luke Skywalker with Blue Milk Minifigure; however, this is only available for the physical copy of the game.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is launching on April 5, 2022. It will be available for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It is the latest project from developer Traveller’s Tales with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment acting as publisher. The game will feature all nine films in the series, with additional content featuring newer characters from the spin-offs to arrive soon.
