With Star Wars Celebration going on full swing, Star Wars news is coming out fast and hard this weekend. First, the reveal of Episode IX’s title and now, news about EA’s new Star Wars game; Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
While we’ve heard about it and even talked about it in the past, this is the first time that EA’s shown the world what the game even looks like.
Well…should look like we guess.
Instead of a gameplay trailer (we guess that’ll come in a few months at E3), all we get are cinematics. There might be snippets of in-game graphics in there (1.15 – 1.19 and 1.28 – 1.37 look like they might be in-game shots) but it’s not confirmed.
What we do know is that the game’s created by Respawn Entertainment, the guys behind the awesome Titanfall games. If anything, that’ll ensure at the very least wallrunning will be incredibly satisfying.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order stars Cal Kestis, a Padawan who survived Order 66 and the subsequent destruction of the Jedi Order. Cal’s hiding from the Empire, laying low and working as a salvager on the planet Braka (newly made just for the game). He’s accompanied by his droid, BD-1 and also an unnamed Jedi Knight, who serves as his mentor and confidant.
Inquisitors and Purge Troopers, from Rebels and Star Wars comics, seem to be some of the enemies you’ll fight in the game. Vader’s probably in there too, maybe even Boba Fett. Hell, at this point in the timeline, it’s not even unthinkable that we might even encounter characters from Star Wars Rebels.
The game will be a third person experience, focused solely on single player, with no multiplayer element or loot boxes. You’re probably right on target if you expect lots of lightsaber fights and usage of Force powers!
That’s definitely a relief for those who wanted another Force Unleashed/ Jedi Outcast instead of a The Old Republic MMO type of game.
More details will definitely be incoming ahead of the game’s November 15 2019 launch on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
