LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Introduction
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is an action-adventure game that is set up in the Star Wars universe and has been part of the franchise for a long time now in the form of the Lego series. The series has been very well received and the latest addition in the franchise has been doing amazing for itself. This has all been supported by the fact that a huge amount of DLC was offered for the game and announced even before the game had come out. The developer for the game, TT Games, had quoted that it would be releasing 7 DLC packs for fans of the game after the release of the original game that would each feature multiple new playable characters. This was big for fans of the series as this meant so much more content to relish.
The developer announced the release first two DLCs in the entire package on the launch day itself. The Mandalorian Season 1 and the Solo: A Star Wars Story DLCs went on to do amazing with the fans on the launch day itself. They each introduced new characters to the game that the fans just adored. Both the aforementioned DLCs have been based on the actual releases by Disney in the Star Wars Universe and fans of the show and the film were absolutely delighted to have playable characters from their favorite series.
After the release of the initial DLC, the developer rolled out another 2 packs for the fans in the form of the Classic Characters Pack as well as the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Pack back in April for the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. This further introduced more characters and added more depth to the lore and the story. That left the developer with just three more DLCs to go.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga New DLC
Now, with the four initial DLCs all released and ready to go, all that was left was to wait for the Star Wars Day. You might have heard the term “May the Force be with you” even if you are not really a fan of the series. After all, it is just such an iconic phrase from the franchise that became instantly recognizable as the franchise became a household name at the time of its release. Since then, there has been no looking back. However, the phrase also seems to be the source of inspiration for the Star Wars Day, which is May 4, and a play on the famous words.
So this May 4, in a powerful move, the LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga developers released three more DLCs for the game each featuring 5 more characters each. TT Games released the Star Wars: The Bad Batch pack, the Trooper Pack, and The Mandalorian Season 2 pack this Star Wars day. Each of these packs is priced at a reasonable $2.99, which turns out to be quite a reasonable price for the DLC given that fans can select which ones they want and then buy them as per their choice. It is quite affordable and if you choose to buy all of them together, it will set you back $14.99, which is quite a discount over buying them all individually.
I’m personally really happy with the way that things have turned out, and I’m sure that most fans will feel the same way.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Conclusion
Now that you know all that is new in the world of Star Wars, I’m sure that you are just waiting to get your hands on the game and the DLC. After all, the new DLC brings so much new content to the game that is just invaluable to any fan of the franchise. It is really nice to see DLC being handled in this manner, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga nails it.
