It’s a special day for the Star Wars community. Today is May 4, commonly referred to as May the Fourth, a pun referring to the iconic Star Wars Jedi quote, “May the Force be with you.” Now May 4 is known as Star Wars Day and it’s a celebration of all things Star Wars across film, television, toys, music, and video games. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is included in that Star Wars Day celebration. An impressive amount of new character DLC for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has been released just for Star Wars Day.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga developer TT Games previously announced that it had seven DLC packs full of new playable characters planned. The first of that DLC, including The Mandalorian Season 1 and the Solo: A Star Wars Story pack, arrived on launch day. The Classic Characters pack and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story then rolled out mid-April. That left three additional DLC packs, the Star Wars: The Bad Batch pack, the Trooper Pack, and The Mandalorian Season 2 pack, for Star Wars Day.
Altogether, there are now seven different Star Wars character DLCs available, with each stemming from some of the biggest Star Wars films and television shows to have been released. Fans of the animated TV show Star Wars: The Bad Batch, of Star Wars trooper armor, and of classic LEGO Star Wars figurines should be very excited for today’s new DLC.
While each DLC has a different number of characters included in the pack, the three new DLC offerings all have just five characters included. The Trooper Pack includes the Imperial Death Trooper, the Incinerator Stormtrooper, the Range Trooper, the Imperial Shoretrooper, and the Mimban Stormtrooper, The Mandalorian Season 2 pack includes Ahsoka Tano, Bo-Katan Kryze, Boba Fett (re-armored), Fennec Shand, and Moff Gideon, while the Star Wars: The Bad Batch pack includes Hunter, Echo, Wrecker, Tech, and Crosshair.
Pricing for each individual pack should be $2.99, which should be affordable enough for Star Wars fans to pick their favorites. Those wanting the full collection of new LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga DLC characters have an option, too. The LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Character Collection DLC is $14.99, a 20% discount versus buying all seven individually.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is already a massive game, filled with over 300 playable Star Wars characters. Today’s Star Wars Day DLC makes it that much larger with dozens more characters to choose from. It may not be free, but for fans of The Mandalorian, The Bad Batch, or the Star Wars spin-off movies, it’s a great opportunity to play as some excellent characters.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
