LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga lets players experience battles like never before in a LEGO game as players can string different attacks together to form combo chains and fend off oncoming attacks. New blaster controls and mechanics allow players to aim with precision and take cover to plot their next move or utilize the skills of a Jedi by wielding a lightsaber and using the power of The Force.
 
Players can traverse space using the galaxy map on their holoprojector to chart their course through the saga, progressively unlocking planets to explore along the way.

During space travel, players may engage in heroic dog fights against enemy ships, piloting legendary vehicles like the Millennium Falcon™, Imperial TIE fighters™, Rebel X-wings™, and many more. Once reaching their destination, players can choose to either continue onwards through the main story or explore and discover exciting quests and puzzles within the galaxy.
 
Exploration rewards players as they uncover Kyber Bricks which unlock new features and upgraded abilities across a range of character classes, including Jedi, Hero, Dark Side, Villain, Scavenger, Scoundrel, Bounty Hunter, Astromech Droid, and Protocol Droid.

Play as iconic characters like Leia™, Yoda™, Boba Fett™, Darth Maul™, Poe™ and over three hundred more unlockable characters from across all nine films in free play mode to create fun, new adventures.

From the idyllic grassy hills of Naboo to the desert dunes of Jakku, the LEGO Star Wars galaxy is available to discover and play in.
 
The trailer also reveals LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga will feature Mumble Mode, an option that fans of the classic LEGO Star Wars games can toggle to replace all voices with mumbles!

Train2Game News FF7 Released In Europe & Asia

People in Europe and Asia have begun receiving their copy of the highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake.

This was a conscious decision from Square Enix due to disruptions from the Corona Virus.

A statement on Twitter reads:

‘We had some hard decisions to make during the final weeks before launch due to disruption to distribution channels caused by the spread of the Covid-19 virus,’

‘These unique circumstances have made it very difficult to align timing of our global shipping. Our highest priority is that all of you, including those who live in countries currently facing the biggest disruption, can play the game at launch, so we made the decision to ship the game far earlier than usual to Europe and Australia.’

For the rest of the world, with just one week  to go until the launch of Final Fantasy VII remake, SQUARE ENIX is making the digital pre-load available starting today on the PlayStation Store to ensure that players are ready to jump straight in to the streets of Midgar when the game releases worldwide on April 10.

In addition, SQUARE ENIX unveiled its Final Trailer from Japan, giving fans a glimpse into memorable narrative moments revealing familiar faces, new characters and epic scenes from late in the game.
