Jedi: Fallen Order will take players to many exotic planets like the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyk.
Since EA acquired the Star Wars license, single-player Star Wars games pretty much stopped coming out. Today, during EA Play 2019, we got our first in-depth look at the upcoming adventure game with an nearly 15-minute gameplay trailer.
Our hero Cal was charged with a mission to take his lightsaber and go save the Wookiees while the remainder of the Rebel group worked to disable a tree sap refinery. Environmental objects seem to be free game for throwing around as well.
There was one really nice sequence where Cal slowed time, pulled an enemy towards him, then threw him into his own laser beam.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the first Star Wars game since EA took over development of the universe that has a singleplayer focus, and it Respawn's first game that doesn't fall into the Titanfall lore they have spent three games developing.
The gameplay we saw showed wallrunning, lightsaber combat and force abilities being used in tandem with each other. A deliberate, precise Star Wars action game sounds like a victor to us. Also, shout-out to the Stormtrooper who says, "At least we have the high ground".
No Star Wars game would be complete without a good story, and Jedi: Fallen Order paints an interesting picture.
Fallen Order will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15.
During the stream, the studio noted that the combat isn't "scripted" - you've always got a lot of control over what main character Cal is doing. As a young Padawan on the run, the odds are against you-but the Force is with you. Cal's flight from the Empire is made even more risky as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire's elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi.
