After your ship malfunctions, leaving you a castaway on a tropical world, you meet the custodian of an ancient observatory, who reveals that a disease called "the Corruption" threatens to overwhelm the area. By going on missions, you can destroy corruption nodes and help fight back against the growing threat.
By yourself or with up to 3 players online, you can go on missions to various locations from all 9 films in the Skywalker Saga, finding and destroying corruption nodes as you go. You can choose whether to be a trooper, a Jedi, or one of the other classes of characters, each with their own unique fighting styles, injecting a bit of strategy into the game.
In addition to these missions, you can also explore the main map, a large tropical resort where you can meet all the other online players, interact using emotes, compete in races and other minigames, and more.

Owing to its online nature, there are no difficulty settings, but the game is designed to be easy enough to be played by small children, so there are no particularly complex parts. There are, however, some parts in levels where being able to quickly respond to in-game events, quickly press buttons and more. In races, you need to be quicker than the other player.
The few parts of the game with dialogue are comprised of gibberish words with large and high contrast subtitles and the name of the speaker. While all the text throughout the game is of this same high contrast, there are many times when it can become quite small, making it somewhat difficult to read.
Levels are clearly navigable, owing to large arrows that point in the direction of corruption modes, and the level design is fairly linear.
