EA has announced a release date and the first trailer for Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming title, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
According to EA, “The game will feature an authentic story set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith™, when the Jedi have fallen. Fans will play as a young Padawan named Cal Kestis, brought to life by Cameron Monaghan (Shameless, Gotham), who 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.”
The game will take place in a number of new locations including a brand-new Star Wars planet called Bracca, in which you’ll play as Cal as he hides from the Empire in plain sight and is forced to be on the run after he exposes his powers.
“Many Star Wars fans, ourselves included, are really interested in the dark times, so we wanted to explore that mysterious, dangerous period,” said Stig Asmussen, Game Director, Respawn Entertainment. “The team at Lucasfilm have been amazing collaborators, helping us explore and further develop this part of the timeline where the Empire is at the height of its power and any remaining Jedi are in hiding. Within this narrative, we’ve crafted a game with intense, yet thoughtful and fun melee combat using the lightsaber and Force powers, allowing anyone to fulfill their Jedi fantasy.”
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to release on November 15th, 2019 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC (via EA Origin). You can pre-order the game now.
