The upcoming LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga video game is set to release this upcoming April. Just recently the official LEGO Star Wars Twitter account had confirmed that the game has officially “Gone Gold”. When a game goes gold that means it is officially ready for release and will be sent off to the presses to be printed onto physical game discs.

The LEGO Star Wars video game franchise is a long running series that began back in 2005. The first game, LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game, adapted the stories of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and the then upcoming Revenge of the Sith. The game combined the action of the Star Wars franchise and creativity of the LEGO brick building toys.
The game sold nearly 3.3 Million units and in 2006 Travelers Tales releases a follow-up, LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. The game followed the original three films, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The game expanded its lineup of playable characters as well as add in new game mechanics when it came to building and customization.
Since then they released a compilation, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, in 2007 combining the first two games into a then “Complete Package” of all the films. Then in 2011 they released LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars, adapting a number of episodes fro the 2008 Star Wars: The Clone Wars series. Finally in 2016 they released LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an adaptation of the 2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Now with the Disney-era Trilogy complete it made sense for Travelers Tales to develop a game that combined all three eras of the current Star Wars film series. With the upcoming release of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga you can now have characters from all eras meet and interact in a variety of different ways.
