Electronic Arts is gearing up to reveal Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, its latest video game under its exclusive Star Wars license. Developed by Respawn Entertainment of Titanfall and Apex Legends fame, the highly-anticipated title is slated for a full unveiling during a Star Wars Celebration panel in Chicago on May 13.
Formal details on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order remain scarce, following its EA Play unveiling in June 2018. The story-driven experience bridges the events of Star Wars: Episode III and Episode IV, following a Padawan's journey after the execution of Order 66. And ahead of a full reveal, Respawn Entertainment co-founder, Vince Zampella, has provided a tease of good news to come.
Speaking during a Star Wars Celebration live stream, Zampella outlined the foundations for its coming title. In the words of the Respawn chief, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is "a single-player, story game," with "no multiplayer, no microtransactions."
Electronic Arts' rough timeline with the Star Wars license hasn't gone unnoticed, recently tainted by Star Wars Battlefront II's missteps in 2017. It's loot-box, microtransaction-riddled multiplayer kickstarted one of the largest backlashes in recent gaming history; with Visceral and EA Vancouver canceling Star Wars projects too. While many remain skeptical of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, hopes are high for a fresh take on the legendary franchise.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set for a 2:30 PM ET reveal on April 13, 2019.
