Datacards in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga — why you need them and where they’re hiding


When you begin playing LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga for the first time, there’s one special game mode you can switch on immediately: Mumble Mode. Instead of the game’s many voice actors speaking their scripted lines, all dialogue becomes the signature series of mumbles that long-time LEGO Star Wars gamers might be more familiar with.

But if just one unique gameplay mode doesn’t satisfy you, you’re in luck. Thanks to the magic of datacards, there are actually over a dozen ways you can make your Skywalker Saga experience even more enjoyable.

The Skywalker Saga has 20 different “modes,” which are unlocked by finding and collecting datacards as you play. Each planet contains one datacard to be found, and once unlocked, allows players to fully experience the humor LEGO Star Wars games are known for. Fight with baguettes instead of lightsabers? Give every character a ginormous head? Translate alien languages into Basic? You’ll need datacards for all these things and so, so much more.

As long as you explore each map fully, you’ll have no trouble finding the datacards scattered across the game. If you’re just playing through the full story at the start, you might miss some along your journey. But one of many great things about The Skywalker Saga is that you can go back and replay levels to collect more items like datacards. For some players, completing the story might not even be the most fun part — and that’s how you know it’s a game plenty of fans, even those who don’t consider themselves hardcore gamers, can enjoy.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is available now on your favorite gaming platforms, including but not limited to PC, Xbox One and Series S/X, Playstation 4/5, and more.
