  • Genre : Action Adventure
  • Release date : 05. April 2022
  • Platforms : PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC

That’s why it’s : In Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker saga are the nine main films in the foreground. From a dark threat to ascent Sky walkers you can do the most important scenes from all episodes. But it will not just be a lot of lending of levels.

In addition, you can unlock 23 planets, which hide many other puzzles and secrets away from the main levels. In addition, over 300 characters and 100 vehicles can be found, as developers boarded us in the interview. Even on the gameplay, a lot will change, because the events will no longer be expired only from a kind of isometric perspective. You can also switch to a third-person view and so more precise the opponents shoot with the blasts.

Additional characters : Even if there are no levels and planets from the spin-off series and films, but at least characters from these are included – at least if you buy the DLC or the Deluxe Edition. Only for money can you play figures from The Mandalorian, Bad Batch, Rogue One and Solo. Whether with or without DLC, Skywalker Saga is the greatest LEGO game of all time, according to Traveler’s Tales.

Long shifts and crunch at Traveler’s Tales

The ambitions, which had the studio Traveler’s valley for the game, were probably too big. As Polygon reports now, there is a toxic crunch culture, which has provided for burned out employees.

The magazine has interviewed over 30 active and former employees of TT Games on the subject to find out more what happened behind the scenes and with all the shifts. So a person said:

There was a very softly mentioned bribery email. If people do not start running overtime, then there will be problems.

The experiences in the studio have left such a permanent damage that former members of the studio even describe it with their own term: PT TSD (word with based on the abbreviation of the studio (TT / Traveler’s valley) and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder)).

Broken Promise : The Skywalker saga should run much better, according to the management, as previous games. The speech was here of a longer development utility and a new engine. That should prevent the crunch. In the end, however, there was exactly the other way around and the new engine brought everything so much in arrears that in the end Crunch became a big topic in the studio.
