Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Will Offer Extra Characters as DLC
Character Packs will be available to purchase separately or as part of a Season Pass.
Ahead of the release of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on April 5, 2022, Warner Bros. Games, TT Games, and The Lego Group revealed details about downloadable content (DLC) that will be released for the game.
Players will have the option to purchase seven individual Character Packs that contain a variety of playable characters from the Star Wars universe. Or, if players don’t want to purchase packs individually, they’ll have the option to purchase every Character Pack at once by buying the game’s Season Pass, which will be called the “Character Collection.”
The game’s Character Pack DLCs will be released over a series of weeks, from April 5, 2022 to May 4, 2022. If players purchase the game’s Season Pass, they’ll receive access to all of the packs as they’re released.
Two Character Packs will be available to purchase at launch on April 5, 2022. Here are the characters that will be included in each pack:
- The Mandalorian Season 1 Character Pack - The Mandalorian with a non-playable Grogu, Greef Karga, Cara Dune, IG-11, and Kuiil
- Solo: A Star Wars Story Character Pack - Young Han Solo, Young Chewbacca, Young Lando Calrissian, Qi’ra, Tobias Beckett, and Enfys Nest
Two more Character Packs will also be available on April 5 for players who receive early access (more on that in a bit):
- The Classic Characters Character Pack - Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Lando Calrissian
- The Trooper Pack Character Pack - Death Trooper, Incinerator Trooper, Range Trooper, Imperial Shore Trooper, and Mimban Stormtrooper.
The Classic Characters Character Pack will be available at launch to players “who have early access from select retail partners.” It will be released for everyone to purchase (and for those who have purchased the Season Pass) on April 19.
Meanwhile, the Trooper Pack will be available at launch to players who pre-order the digital version of the game. It will be released for everyone to purchase (and for players who purchased the Season Pass) on May 4
The game’s fifth Character Pack will be released on April 19, 2022:
- Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Character Pack - Jyn Erso, Bodhi Rook, Cassian Andor, K-2SO, Chirrut Îmwe, Baze Malbu, and Director Krennic
Finally, the last two Character Packs will be released on May 4, 2022:
- The Mandalorian Season 2 Character Pack - Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett, Bo Katan, Fennec Shand, and Moff Gideon
- Star Wars: The Bad Batch Character Pack - Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo
