In April a reveal trailer was released for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which publisher Electronic Arts promised would be the single-player game fans have been begging for since EA scored a deal with Disney giving them the exclusive rights to develop Star Wars games back in 2013. It’s been over six years since that deal was signed, and only multiplayer shooters Battlefront and Battlefront II, as well as a mobile game, have been released. With this game EA was finally promising no multiplayer and no loot boxes, just a single-player adventure to enjoy.
At the time it was assumed that we might see more when E3 2019 rolled around. And with the gaming convention kicking off this weekend, EA did just that by holding their EA Play event. During the presentation the first gameplay from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is developed by Respawn Entertainment, was unveiled. The video runs nearly 14 minutes long, and you can find it below along with more info on the game.
A GALAXY UNDER IMPERIAL RULE
The Empire seeks to eradicate all Jedi after the execution of Order 66. You, a Jedi Padawan-turned-fugitive, must fight for your survival as you explore the mysteries of a long-extinct civilization in hopes of rebuilding the Jedi Order.
A JEDI ON THE RUN
After narrowly escaping the Jedi purge, you’re on a quest to rebuild your fallen Order. Pick up the pieces of your shattered past and complete your Jedi training, all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.
MASTER YOUR ABILITIES
Utilize your Jedi training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path.
THE GALAXY AWAITS
Use the Force to augment the way you explore, allowing you to traverse new paths and discover parts of locations you’ve been to before. Move quickly, though. The Empire is on your trail and won’t stop until every Jedi is exterminated.
HONE YOUR POWERS
Use the Force to manipulate your environment, destroy obstacles, and surprise unsuspecting foes. Move quickly, though—the Empire is on your tail.
MASTER LIGHTSABER COMBAT
You’ll need to be twice the fighter your enemies are to survive against the Empire. Parry incoming attacks, dodge out of danger, and finish the Empire’s forces before they finish you.
TRUST YOUR COMPANION
If there’s anyone in the galaxy you can count on, it’s BD-1. Use his abilities to search your environment, find the quickest path to safety, or recover from a fight.
MOVE LIKE A JEDI
Leap, climb, swim, dive, wall-run, and more as you explore dangerous terrain with your Force-enhanced reflexes and agility.
If you’d rather watch the full segment in which the gameplay was revealed, which includes a chat with game director Stig Asmussen and Respawn head Vince Zampella, I’ve included that video below as well.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is currently scheduled to be released on November 15th.
The Empire won’t stop until every Jedi is purged from the galaxy. As a young Padawan on the run, the odds are against you—but the Force is with you. Discover the Jedi abilities you must master to survive.
