EA released a video today giving fans an extended look at the gameplay from the Respawn developed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The video shows 25-minutes of gameplay that was previously shown only to E3 2019 attendees. The trailer goes into details of the gameplay mechanics and gives fans an insight into the game’s combat and non-linear approach to level design. Each location will be open to new challenges and potential upgrades for the game’s protagonist, Cal Kestis. The developer also published a blog entry detailing their approach to developing this new adventure.
“We spent months going back and forth discussing the best strategy to release this content, and ultimately decided for the first-look, it was critical to present a focused 15 minutes of raw, in-game footage highlighting lightsaber gameplay that speaks to the Jedi fantasy in an empowering way. But it should not be mistaken that our combat is overpowered or easy. I promise there is considerable challenge and depth to be found within our combat system. The same can be said about our approach to level design, which is crafted in a non-linear way with heavy influences from games like Metroid, Castlevania, and the Souls series.”
tar Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set on a new planet as Cal is hiding from the Empire, but has been forced onto the run as he reveals his Force powers. To help him on the way is one of Cal’s companion’s Cere along with other familiar faces. Cal is also being pursued by the Second Sister, an elite Inquisitor of the Empire who seeks to hunt Cal down and eliminate him.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will not feature microtransactions and has been developed as a single play experience by the team at Respawn. Gameplay will feature force power action and lightsaber abilities which require some strategy during combat.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC-via Origin on November 15.
