The world’s largest gaming event and video game trade fair, Gamescom, is right around the corner – and its opening night ceremony will include a new look at the game we’ve all been waiting for – LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
As announced by video game journalist and television presenter, Geoff Keighley, via his Twitter page, the game’s first-ever reveal will take place at Gamescom. Traditionally the event is an in-person one but has gone digital for the last two years, allowing fans from all around the world to enjoy the content.
The opening night live stream will start at 8 PM CEST / 7 PM BST / 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT on August 25th (or 2 AM NZST / 4 AM AEST on August 26th if you are in New Zealand or Australia), though exactly when the reveal will take place is unknown.
Fans have long suspected that the long-delayed game was getting closer to release – clues like the recent addition of the next-gen versions of the game pointed to something significant happening – and with this news, the hope that The Skywalker Saga will see the light of day before the year closes has been rekindled.
