EA and Respawn Entertainment debuted the story trailer for the upcoming single-player action adventure Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order over the weekend, and it looks really interesting. A single-player Star Wars game, the first since the LucasArts era, and one that follows the story of a Jedi in hiding after the events of Episode III.
Check it out.
Although no gameplay footage is shown we do get a few glimpses about what we might expect when it launches November 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Firstly it follows Cal Kestis, a survivor of the Jedi Order now in hiding - who naturally gets found. From the action we see, in gameplay terms there looks to be light-saber battles, force powers in the form of push and pull, and even wall-running. Which is also a fun nod to Respawn's Titanfall series.
“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.”
“When Respawn approached us with the idea for this game, we were immediately supportive. A single player, story-driven title in the Star Wars universe was exactly what we were looking for, and we know the fans have been eager for one, as well,” said Steve Blank, Director, Franchise Content & Strategy, Lucasfilm Story Group. “Focusing on Cal stepping back into the shoes of a Jedi post Order 66 opens up a lot of gameplay opportunities and rich story threads to develop for this new character and his backstory.”
As per the reveal both EA and Respawn have come out to note that it will be a single-player game. Focused on story, and one that won't feature any micro-transactions. After the cancellation of Viceral's Star Wars game and the Star Wars Battlefront II fiasco, it's a welcome shift.
