Explore a mysterious new planet with friends in Lego Star Wars: Castaways. It will be the first social, action-adventure Lego Star Wars game, so it’ll offer chances to relive great moments from the movies or have dance parties.
The upcoming Gameloft title will be available only on Apple Arcade.
Lego Star Wars: Castaways is about fun and adventure
Apple’s gaming service already includes several Lego-themed games. It unveiled the next one on Tuesday via Twitter.

Players will start by building their own in-game Lego minifig. Then they can explore a secret world where there’s plenty to find. “Battle foes, solve puzzles, build your skills in battle arenas and learn to pilot your way through flight simulations,” said Gameloft, the developer. “Unearth mysteries and discover a growing threat to life on the planet.”
Part of the adventure will be playing through simulations of key Star Wars moments in iconic locations. But it’s not all action — players can throw a dance party for their friends.
And social interaction will be a big part of the fun. Lego Star Wars: Castaways will supports one to four players. They can cooperate to complete quests or battle it out in races in the Hippodrome.
An Apple Arcade exclusive
Lego Star Wars: Castaways from Gameloft will debut in the App Store on November 19, 2021. There will be versions for iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple TV — though the cooperative elements will obviously be more playable on a larger screen. No matter the platform, an external game controller is always an option.
Playing will require a $4.99-a-month subscription to Apple Arcade. And that comes with 200+ other games, including Lego Star Wars Battles, Lego Brawls and Lego Builder’s Journey. There are no additional costs as ads, in-app purchases and loot boxes are banned by the service.
May the Apple Arcade be with you.
