    An interview with one of the developers of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga that has flown under the radar has indicated that the long-awaited video game will come with lots of familiar faces, with the total number of playable characters rising to nearly 400.

    In an interview hosted by GameSpot, TT Games senior producer James Burgon has indicated that as the scope and scale of the massive project has expanded over the course of its development, players will be able to play as nearly 400 characters and run into hundreds of unique NPCs:

    Worth keeping in mind is that this is before counting the various characters coming to the game via downloadable content, which will allow players to play as their favorite characters from the likes of The Mandalorian, Rogue One, Solo, The Bad Batch and more upon purchase. Word suggests that there are 20 purchase options set for the game, which does not necessarily translate to 20 character packs, but still suggests more options for players to potentially choose from than the initial seven packs that are said to be ready at launch.


    The game is also a bit of a departure from previous LEGO Star Wars titles in that a sizable portion of the game's story will be told outside of the main levels. For instance, while the first two levels of the original game had to do with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan's escape from the Trade Federation into the city of Otoh Gunga, all that will be playable in the open world, while the first official level of The Skywalker Saga will allow players to explore the trip into the planet core for the first time. Burgon explained that this change in style had to do with wanting to encourage separating open-world exploration with more action-driven sequences:

    Game design isn't the only thing that's changed between LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga and its predecessors - combat is now surprisingly intricate compared to previous installments, where it was largely a matter of knowing when to hit the attack button. Things have been reworked between melee and ranged combat, and that's one element that they're most excited for players to discover:


    There are other bits of details worth looking into in the original article, but one thing that we would like to single out is that the developers have realized that the development of the game has been a complicated process, and they're happy to soon have the finished product on the shelves to reward fans for their patience:

    We certainly won't have much longer to wait to see another update from the most ambitious LEGO Star Wars title to date, as it's been confirmed that The Skywalker Saga will have a presence at IGN Fan Fest 2022 later today.


    LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be released on April 5, 2022, on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 video game consoles, along with Microsoft Windows.
