New ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Footage Surfaces from German Behind-the-Scenes Clip

New Obi-Wan Kenobi footage has surfaced from a German behind-the-scenes clip. It includes our first look at a new alien race in the show and brief making-of shots. Via r/StarWarsLeaks on Reddit, we’ve received 17 extra seconds of Obi-Wan Kenobi that show us the Inquisitors’ arrival on Tatooine, Reva Force-throwing a hooded man (who could be Benny Safdie’s character) against a wall, helmer Deborah Chow carefully directing a scene, some extra Inquisitors/Reva action sequences and stunts, and a previously unseen (and practical) mole-headed alien race. At the very end, we also get another look at the busy streets of Daiyu — mostly projected on the Volume — and the mysterious big android (?) that we had already seen shooting at and throwing stormtroopers around in other previews. Watch the f...

‘LEGO Star Wars’ Patch Fixes Bugs, Adds DLC

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has not only received a major patch fixing several glitches, but also adding new free roam content and side quests for players to enjoy. As it’s been made clear, The Skywalker Saga has had a rough development cycle thanks to difficulties working with a new engine, among other issues. While the game was ultimately satisfactory for a number of fans, players who encountered progress-halting bugs and other issues that caused a lot of frustration. A major patch has arrived to address these concerns, as three massive bugs that prevented players from advancing either in story campaigns or free play have now been fixed: Revenge of the Sith‘s fifth story mission, “The High Ground”, had a glitch where if you exited from the level, you may be unable to return to ...

Obi-Wan Kenobi Coming to Fortnite, Special Tournament Set for May 22

The rumors were true: legendary Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi will be joining Fortnite starting this Sunday. The official Fortnite channels made the announcement today, putting an end to weeks of rampant speculation and on-the-nose teases by the massive online shooter. He will pop up in the game’s in-game store on May 27, the same day the series will begin streaming on Disney Plus. As you can see in the first official look at the character (pictured above), Obi-Wan comes with a set of items inspired by the show, including a backpack prepared for Tatooine’s harsh environments, a pick-knife of sorts, a unique emote, and his iconic ETA-2 Actis-class light interceptor, a vehicle we weren’t expecting to see included in the series’ promotional material. Could it be a tease, or is it just a simpl...

‘Knights of the Old Republic’ Hires Saber Interactive

The highly-anticipated remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is expanding its horizons behind the scenes as Aspyr Media has hired Saber Interactive to assist in the development of the title. Push Square reports that, during a board meeting with Aspyr’s parent company Embracer Group, Saber CEO Matthew Karch has confirmed that his company will be collaborating with Aspyr on the project. Aspyr is no stranger to hiring new talent to help flesh out their first AAA original title, since the company also hired multiple people involved with the original Knights of the Old Republic games and the MMORPG spin-off The Old Republic. Here’s what Karch had to say with regard to his company’s involvement: “Aspyr has gone full in to make this the best game that they can make. When we acquired...
