What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an upcoming action game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PCs. The game is based on the globally popular Star Wars franchise, and covers all nine films in the main Star Wars films, including the upcoming Episode iX. Unlike other collections of Lego Star Wars games, this one has been redesigned from the ground up to be a completely new experience that isn't reusing any previously produced content. Players will have the option to play as more than 200 different characters from the films, and will play through some of the key moments in each movie. Environments are frequently destructible, and will also have quest givers scattered throughout each level to give players side quests and missions. The Skywalker Saga will also be the first game from the Lego franchise to allow players to use the Force all throughout the game to move objects or even trigger characters to dance and move through space without a “Force needed” icon showing up onscreen. Combat's frequent, but is comically handled and results in characters falling apart into Lego bricks when defeated. Otherwise, there’s no inappropriate content to be found in the game.
