Namely, it would seem that physical copies of LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga may have been shipped out early, with players getting them well ahead of the game's April 5th release date. Further, the lucky owner has gone on to explain that this isn't even the first time this has happened, meaning that gamers from a particular region may want to start preordering games once more.
Reddit user Frisby123 recently posted that they received their PlayStation 5 copy of LEGO Skywalker Saga in the mail a few days ahead of its actual release date. They were ordering the game via Amazon UK, which Frisby123 claims did something similar with their physical copy of Dying Light 2, as well. Curiously, this isn't the first leak this game's had, as the full list of playable Skywalker Saga characters got leaked online in late March.
After six years' worth of development time and allegations of excessive crunch while making The LEGO Skywalker Saga, it's not particularly strange to see TT Games' fans excited to finally be able to play a new LEGO game. Especially since this is the first time in years that there are substantial changes being made to a LEGO game's core gameplay loop, content progression, and feature set.
Though it's gaining plenty of features and content, the new LEGO Star Wars has no character customization, which some players may find disappointing. With over 300 characters already confirmed (and leaked) and at least seven unique post-launch DLC packs on the way, there should be no shortage of fun options to choose from, however. In general, a lack of content has never been a concern with TT Games productions, and it's unlikely this will change with The LEGO Skywalker Saga.
In fact, some may even say that the new LEGO Star Wars is a completionist's dream come true, given that it spans three entire trilogies' worth of content bundled into one game. Collectible bricks are a given, and now that there's a proper character progression/upgrade system available in the game, players should be more inclined to focus on this aspect of the game.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga launches on April 5th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
