In addition, Sony revealed September’s PS Plus lineup, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga seems to have been delayed, and more. Here’s the video game news you might’ve missed on Aug. 26, 2020.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga Seems to Have Been Delayed to 2021
Earlier today, the official Lego website listed Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga as a 2021 game, shifting it from its original 2020 release window. However, this page has since been taken down and the game now reflects as “coming soon.” We’ll get a closer look at it during Geoff Keighley’s Gamescom: Opening Night Live showcase, in which TT Games will likely give an update on its new release window.

Fall Guys Is the Most Downloaded PS Plus Game in History
Speaking of Fall Guys, its momentum doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. Today, publisher Devolver Digital announced that Fall Guys has surpassed 7 million downloads on Steam and is the most downloaded PS Plus game of all time.
This is noteworthy since PS Plus has offered tremendous games like Rocket League, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, and The Last of Us Remastered. Tomorrow, as part of Gamescom: Opening Night Live, we’ll get a look at Fall Guys Season 2, which is due out sometime in the near future.
