EA reveals Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a Single Player Only game

Over the weekend, EA officially unveiled Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new game which is coming from Respawn Entertainment, the creators of Apex Legends and Titanfall, later this year. 

Unlike previous Star Wars games from EA, Jedi: Fallen Order will be a single player only title, lacking both microtransactions and loot boxes, which were contentious additions to EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II.  

The game will be built using Unreal Engine 4 and follows a Jedi Padawan called Cal Kestis, who if voice acted by Cameron Monaghan. Fallen Order will be based after the fall of the Jedi in Star Wars: Episode III, taking place between episodes III and IV of the film series. 

Cal, like all surviving Jedi, is hiding from the emerging Galactic Empire; remaining out of sight while working as a salvager on a planet called Bracca alongside BD-1, his droid companion. By keeping his force sensitivity hidden and staying under the Empire’s radar he can remain safe, but given the fact that this is a game, you can guess that things eventually go wrong. 

Respawn promises an in-depth combat system within Fallen Order, one which will demand that players learn how to use all of Cal’s abilities to succeed. Purge Trooper have already been confirmed for the game, melee-focused troopers which are trained to hunt down surviving Jedi. 

Below is Respawn’s first trailer for Jedi: Fallen Order, which is fully pre-rendered. A full gameplay reveal is expected at E3 2019. 

 

Jedi: Fallen Order has been built using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4 and will release on November 15th 2019 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will likely be exclusive to EA’s Origin platform on PC, like other games created by the publisher.
