Lego Star Wars: Skywalker Saga Preorder Guide: Exclusive Steelbook, Pricing, And More
The Deluxe edition of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is up for preorder, and you can get a cool steelbook with your order as well.
The Lego Star Wars series has been retelling the legendary story using the adorable building block franchise for years now, but Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be the biggest Lego Star Wars adventure yet. It spans all nine Skywalker saga films--including The Rise of Skywalker. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will release in Spring 2021, as announced during Gamescom Opening Night Live 2020, and it's up for preorder now, with a Deluxe edition available in addition to the standard version.
You'll probably want to place your order at Best Buy when you see the retailer's preorder bonus. (That said, Amazon is also offering a nice discount on preorders if you'd rather save some money.) Best Buy is offering an exclusive steelbook case with all console preorders of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. The silver hardcover case portrays Han Solo encased in carbonite, referencing the event in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The striking steelbook is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Xbox One versions of the game, the only difference being that the Nintendo Switch case has a thinner border.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga aims to cover a lot of ground, spanning nine films and packing in nearly 500 characters. Whether you've played older Lego Star Wars games or are new to the franchise, the Skywalker Saga will be the new definitive edition to own, as levels from older games have been completely redesigned.
The game itself is non-linear, taking an open-world (or open-galaxy) approach to the saga. That means you can start playing the game at any point in the saga; for example, you can choose to start playing from A New Hope, and the world in the game will exist as it did at that point in the story. Alternatively, you could jump straight into The Last Jedi or Rise of Skywalker, which will be appearing in Lego form for the first time. With new characters, cutscenes, and a new combo system for combat, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will be a brand-new experience for both longtime fans of the series and new players. Like all Lego games, it'll include couch co-op multiplayer that's family-friendly and accessible to new gamers.
If you're interested in preordering, read on for where to secure your copy of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC along with more information about the game's preorder bonuses.
As of right now, the only Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga preorder bonus we're seeing is the aforementioned steelbook available exclusively at Best Buy. These steelbooks usually have about a $10 value of their own, and they make nice collectible items to display on a shelf or near your gaming setup. Best Buy notes that quantities are limited, and we expect the steelbook may sell out before release due to its unique and eye-catching design.
Physical copies of the standard edition are available to preorder for $60 on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. You'll get any preorder bonuses along with the base game. Digital preorders haven't gone live yet, but you can check out the placeholder listings at the Xbox Store, Steam, and other PC game sites below.
Right now, the game is discounted to $49.94 on Amazon for Switch.
