EA and developer Respawn has revealed the long in developed Star Wars titled Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC-via Origin and will be a single player narrative-driven experience. Players will be able to play as a young Padawan named Cal Kestis who has survived the Emperor’s secret decree, Order 66, which aimed to destroy all Jedi. During the game, players will be able to experience moments of Cal’s past as they learn about his training and master the art of the Force as well as lightsaber skills.
“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.”
Star 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.
