Today on April 13th 2019 it was finally time for Apex Legends and Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment to shine with a brand new reveal of the next EA Star Wars game: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
A title so open it could mean anything between is this placed when there was no hope anymore and before Episide IV of the movies or is it even closer before the Rogue One event? Well, the reveal trailer certainly does give us a vague glimpse into what world we will jump in coming November 15th 2019 when the game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and PC via Origin™. The official press release from EA tells us though the game lets us “Play as a Jedi Padawan on the Run After the Events of Star Wars™: Revenge of the Sith™” well alright then.
Here’s the reveal trailer for your enjoyment
Now what do you think about this trailer? To me this looks like Respawn Entertainment has also been using the Frostbite Engine for this project, but that’s just a guess from my side. (UPDATE: In the reveal trailer it was shown on the last screen that in fact Epic’s Unreal Engine is used for Jedi: Fallen Order!) We also got to see some concept art in the live panel at which the game was revealed. These images have been posted by @PartWelsh who is an EA community manager based in the UK.
Here are the images in full resolution:
About the Hero: Cal Kestis
The story of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be centered around the young padawan named Cal Kestis. He survived the Order 66 purge in which all Jedi have been killed on order of Senator Palpatin or as he was since then known as Darth Sidious. Cal Kestis will be brought to life by Cameron Monaghan who we also know from Shameless and Gotham TV series. As the player will progress through the story of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, your goal will be to complete your Jedi training and to bring together the shattered past of our hero.
On his journey we will also meet new characters and known characters from the Star Wars universe. One such character will be the mysterious companion Cere and also by his side will be his faithful droid BD-1. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will also play on new planets, such as Bracca and several other new locations that are going to be introduced in the game.
The antagonists of Fallen Order
The Antagonist: Second Sister, is an elite inquisitor, a female lightsaber user who is leading the purge squad on as their leader. The lightsaber in particular is the iconic double sided red lightsaber which was already wielded by Darth Maul who we know from the Episode 1 Star Wars movie.
How the story will unfold will be seen as the game will release on November 15th, 2019 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and on PC via the EA owned Origin game launcher.
