Today's gameplay reveal for the highly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may be garnering the most attention, but we also got a few more details about how traveling from planet to planet will work in the upcoming game. Game Informer reports that players won't encounter loading screens when traveling on their ship, The Stinger Mantis. Rather, flights between planets will take place in real time, giving you a chance to check out different activities on board.
The Stinger Mantis will also feature a customizable exterior. The default look for the vessel is blue and silver, but players will be able to change up the look, in some capacity, as they please.
Importantly, the ship will feature different activities for players to take part in. EA didn't dive into what those might look like, presumably to save them for another reveal before the game's launch. However, they'll serve the purpose of giving players something to do as they move between planets.
Further, each planet, according to Game Informer, features a hub that players will land in with further activities to explore. These hubs are where you'll be able to rest, use skill points, save, and talk to other characters.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is expected to release on November 15, and you can preorder it now for $51 at Amazon.
