LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga adds new Mandalorian & Bad Batch character DLC

To celebrate Star Wars Day, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is digging deep into the recent archives.


It's Star Wars Day and that means it's time to celebrate the franchise that George Lucas built across a variety of different media. The celebration, of course, extends into video games. Specifically, those who own LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga can now pick up a few new extra characters to further round out the playable roster. On Wednesday, WB Games announced new DLC packs featuring characters from the second season of The Mandalorian and animated Disney+ hit Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

Both of the new DLC packs for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga are part of the game's Character Collection Pack. For The Mandalorian: Season 2, players can find Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett, Bo Katan, Fennec Shand, and Moff Gideon. The Bad Batch DLC pack features the core members of the titular crew. That includes Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Echo, and also the traitorous Crosshair. Those who aren't looking to pick up the Character Collection Pack can also grab the DLC collections individually.

Despite numerous delays, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga released back in April and it looks to be pretty awesome. The critical and consumer acclaim for the open-world LEGO Star Wars experience has led to it setting records for the biggest LEGO game launch in the brick-building series' long-running history.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
