Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launches in November, story trailer revealed
It'll be just in time for the holidays.
Today during the Star Wars Celebration, EA finally unveiled Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to the world. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a story-driven third-person action game that Respawn Entertainment has been working on for many years now. The title is a single-player experience without any multiplayer component and, more importantly, microtransactions.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order should launch on November 15, starting at $60. However, there is a deluxe edition which should cost more. Currently, it seems like the title will only launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.
During a Star Wars Celebration panel, Respawn revealed that there are multiple planets in the game, as a part of an all-new story experience. With lightsaber in-hand, gameplay focuses on thoughtful melee-based combat. The trailer didn't showcase raw gameplay, but it did give a taste of the visuals, featuring in-game assets.
Players step into the shoes of Cal Kestis, a Jedi on the run with your droid BD-1, after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, when the Jedi have fallen. Cal has survived Order 66, the Emperor's secret decree to eliminate all Jedi. Players must pick up the pieces of Cal's shattered past to complete his training and master the art of the iconic lightsaber, all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors. You have access to Force powers, but throughout the campaign, you'll learn more and become a true master. You'll also team up with other characters like former Jedi Knights in order to survive. Players will also use traversal and other platforming abilities to overcome opponents and solve puzzles.
Respawn's Game Director Stig Asmussen said the following about the announcement.
Lucasfilm's Director of Franchise and Content Steve Blank added the following.
