Lego Star Wars: The Skyawlker Saga finally has a release window

After mysteriously disappearing for a full year, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga made a splash during this year’s Gamescom Opening Night Live show with news of a new trailer and a release window. The game, which will let players explore the entire Star Wars franchise through Lego, will launch in spring 2022.

The trailer for Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga also quickly set it apart from other Lego Star Wars games. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will instead go for a much more realistic and cinematic approach, while naturally keeping some of the franchise’s innate qualities, like its silly sense of humor.

Players will fill the roles of main, and at some points custom, characters throughout the game. Unlike previous entries, characters will also be voiced, so the game’s story will actually be told rather than simply shown. Combat in the game has also seemingly been revamped, with players now able to properly aim and take cover when using laser weapons. Lightsaber combat will also have a bit more depth.

However, the biggest change shown during the trailer was the addition of a galaxy map. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will apparently be open-world to some extent. The menu shown during the trailer includes various planets from the Star Wars universe like Geonosis, Tatooine, and Kamino, all of which the player can travel to at will. Once on a planet, players will seemingly be able to explore photorealistic environments, all as Lego versions of the franchise’s iconic characters.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is currently set to launch this upcoming Spring for PlayStation 4 and5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

Star Ocean: The Divine Force: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more

Aside from old-school JRPG fans, the mention of Star Ocean might not mean much. The series has always been two or three steps down in popularity from the likes of Final Fantasy or even Dragon Quest, but those who have dug into this slightly more obscure series are quick to sing its praises. First established in 1996, the Star Ocean games have come at an irregular pace, with only five total games in the mainline series released so far, the latest being Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness in 2016. That game, and the previous entry, were not all that well-received, leaving fans unsure about this smaller franchise's future.

Sony's October 2021 State of Play event wasn't full of many big surprises, but the announcement of Star Ocean: The Divine Force was one that meant a lot to fans of the series and also has made fans of JRPGs in general curious about this strange game that mixes fantasy elements into a sci-fi-inspired universe. The trailer we got was only a brief two and a half minutes, but more information has been trickling out. If you were intrigued by this unique-looking JRPG from the masters of the genre, Square Enix, here's everything we know about Star Ocean: The Divine Force.
