Collect your bricks and get ready to journey to a galaxy far, far away one more time in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Traveller’s Tales’ latest LEGO romp takes you through every mainline Star Wars film once more, with a host of added improvements and gameplay mechanics.
LEGO games have of course covered all of the Star Wars films up to this point already, but this single package has the whole collection, and it’s built on a brand new engine. So, when you’re out shuffling through the sands of Tatooine, you’ll notice every grain of sand and clay hut is rendered in the highest quality possible.
If you’ve never played a LEGO game before, welcome! Each iteration of the LEGO game series outdoes the previous one, and The Skywalker Saga is no different. If you think you might need a helping hand in navigating this massive game or its mechanics and content, you’ve come to the right place! This LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Beginner’s Guide has a few tips to help you get going.
As you play The Skywalker Saga, you might occasionally fall off platforms. It might not even be your fault, maybe you didn’t see the edge of the stage, and you just waltz right off. It’s ok, it’s just part of the LEGO games.
But, every time you fall, you’ll lose a set amount of studs before you respawn into the stage. A fall here or there won’t necessarily be an issue, but if you find yourself constantly falling off of Cloud City, you may want to take a look at the settings menu.
In that menu, there is an option called “Fall Recovery”. When you enable this, you will no longer lose studs from falling off of stages. It takes hardly any time, and it’ll get you well on your way to saving up studs for those big late-game purchases.
Veteran LEGO game players will already know this, and if you get dropped into this game, you might find yourself automatically doing it because it’s fun. But if you’re looking to stack up those studs, here’s the best tip I can give you: BREAK EVERY SINGLE OBJECT YOU SEE.
Just about the entire environment in every LEGO game is destructible, and destroying everything around you rewards you with bucket fulls of studs to add to your stash. It’ll make you richer, and it feels great to break things. A total win-win! Additionally, any important objects in each level will be able to be re-constructed, so don’t worry about breaking something important.
Complete Stories When You Start Them
There are a ton of things to do in The Skywalker Saga, between the main stories, side quests, and planet exploration. You might be tempted to jump from thing to thing, and that’s fine, but if you’re looking to unlock every character quickly, you should play through the main stories entirely first.
Finishing the main missions in each episode will unlock handfuls of characters at a time, whereas if you’re jumping from thing to thing it could take you much longer. After you’ve completed all of the stories, you can wander about to your heart’s content, and with a ton of different characters!
Talk to NPCs
Speaking of sidequests, you should take the time to speak to every NPC who has an exclamation point over their head. It’ll usually be a funny interaction, and sometimes they’ll give you optional sidequests that you can do to earn extra studs or other rewards.
It might seem a little tedious, but you can skip through all of the dialogue if you don’t care what they’re actually saying. The objectives they give you will be added to your list so you can reference them, whenever you need to.
Talking to NPCs can also help guide you towards secrets and collectible kyber bricks scattered throughout each stage, or give you hints for your current objectives. It’s always worth your time, so talk to NPCs as you come across them.
When playing as a Jedi or Sith, you’ll have extra powers that no other characters have. The game doesn’t explain this very well, but these extra powers are tied to a menu. To bring the menu up, you’ll need to hold the Y button on an Xbox controller, or the triangle button for PlayStation.
This will give you options to use special abilities like the Jedi mind trick. Other characters have ability menus as well for their own special abilities. Scavenger and Bounty Hunter characters can bring up their own menu with the B button on Xbox, or the circle button on PlayStation.
