LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga video game on Xbox One

Official key art for the upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga video game was finally revealed yesterday on May the 4th.

While it had already been confirmed that the game would cover all nine of the main saga films, this image gives us out first look at how several of the playable characters will appear in the game. Of particular note is Rey who’s sporting her yellow lightsaber, an appearance that was just added to the Star Wars Battlefront II video game last week.

“Encapsulating the game’s epic blend of the three Star Wars trilogies, the key art includes some of the greatest heroes and villains seen throughout the Skywalker saga,” the text that accompanied the image reads. “Players can fight against the forces of evil as favourite characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Rey, Finn, BB-8 and a legion of other heroes, or turn to the dark side as Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, and more.

“Thrilling locales also serve as a backdrop to the action-packed key art as players can engage in some of the films’ most legendary battles. From the landmark start to the Clone Wars in the Battle of Geonosis to manning an Alliance snowspeeder at the Battle of Hoth to take on the Imperial’s treacherous ground forces, generations of Star Wars lore and fandom will collide in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.”

No release date has been set for the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga video game yet but it has been confirmed for a release sometime this year and an official Xbox One digital store listing is already live.
