LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga Coming Today
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Feral Interactive is scheduled to release LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga for Mac users today.

Developed by TT Games and LucasArts, LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga uses LEGO bricks to recreate the scenes, characters and settings from all six Star Wars movies in a game universe spanning 36 levels. Players can take the roles of famous characters such as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO and R2-D2, as they play through scenes from the films. Along the way they will build objects out of LEGO bricks and collect LEGO studs to unlock new characters and content. The game will also feature enhanced multiplayer co-op abilities that allow a second player to join a game, dropping in at any time to help the first player complete missions or master tricky tasks.  

“The LEGO Star Wars games have a rare quality that appeals to players of all ages,” said David Stephen, Feral Interactive’s Managing Director. “We’re delighted to bring The Complete Saga to the Mac.”

Play through a fun Star Wars galaxy that combines the endless customization of LEGO with the epic story from all six episodes of Star Wars. This is the definitive LEGO Star Wars comprising the first two games and expanding them with new characters, enhanced visuals, and more bonus levels than you can shake a lightsaber at. LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga is a family-friendly game, which appeals to all ages. It is both funny and challenging: pick and choose your characters wisely to engage in combat, solve puzzles and work together as a team to defeat the dark side.

Key features:

  • Updated graphics mean LEGO Star Wars has never looked so good!
  • Unlock more than 160 characters from the Star Wars movies, including 10 characters never seen before in the LEGO Star Wars games.
  • 36 levels to explore.
  • Lots of surprises and funny moments, trademarks of developer TT Games’ LEGO titles.
  • New playable characters include Aayla Secura, Lama Su, Captain Tarpals, R2-Q5, Plo Koon, Dexter Jettster, Pit Droid, Zam Wessell and Watto.
  • Upgraded Character Customizer adds all “Prequel Trilogy” characters and expands customization options, so you can create cross-Trilogy “mashup” characters like Han Windu or Lando Amidala.
  • Enhanced Force powers for both Jedi and Sith characters, including “Force Throw” and “Force Push.”
  • New power-ups scattered throughout all levels of the game.
  • True co-operative multiplayer lets two players enjoy the fun together!

EVE Online Incursion Expansion Release Schedule Revealed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

CCP Games has posted a new dev blog explaining the company's plans for releasing Incursion, the next new expansion for all subscribers and trial users of EVE Online. Originally planned for a November release, the game will now be released in a series of patches beginning with the first patch on November 30th, a second near Christmas, and a final patch with key features in January 2011.

We imagine that you are starting to get excited over the Incursion expansion we've been working on for the past few months.

With all of the screenshots and videos of the new Incarna character creator we've seen filling up the intertubes, we can see that excitement is building for the upcoming Incursion expansion. The Sansha Incursion feature itself has had a lot of positive feedback through the mass tests we‘ve been running on Singularity and, with the host of smaller fixes (many requested directly by you!), this is going to be one epic expansion.

Based on a lot of great feedback we've gotten from the Singularity public test server, we see that both key features will benefit greatly from an additional level of polish.

We also want to do some usability changes to the Incarna character creator UI, and our artists are anxious to invest more time tweaking the assets you've been drooling over. For the Sansha Incursion feature there is some polish we want to get in, mostly on the socialization and UI front, but there is also some backend optimization that we want to do to get things to run more smoothly.

On top of that, we want to make sure our quality assurance department gets plenty of time with the more polished, final versions.

We discussed a few of the options we have with the CSM, and I think we‘re very unified that the best course of action is:

  1. Release a first-step patch with a collection of player requested improvements November 30th.
  2. Release a second-step patch before Christmas (Only Santa knows what will be in this patch!)
  3. Release key features of this expansion such as the Incarna Character Creator and Sansha Incursions in January 2011
