Following on from the Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker reveal, Respawn Entertainment has dropped the first look at its upcoming game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Set shortly after the events of Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be available November 15, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Star Wars fans play as Cal Kestis, a young padawan who survived Order 66, the Emperor’s secret decree to eliminate all Jedi. Players will dive into Cal’s shattered past to complete his Jedi training and master the art of the lightsaber, all while staying ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors. Cal Ketsis is brought to live by Cameron Monaghan, the actor best known for his work on Shameless and as the Joker in TV’s Gotham.
Jedi: Fallen Order kicks-off with Cal hiding out on the planet Bracca, until he is forced to run after exposing his force powers. Accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1, Cal makes new friends like the mysterious Cere, as well as encountering some familiar faces. He is pursued by one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors known as the Second Sister and a platoon of Imperial Purge Troopers.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order aims to deliver the kind of intense lightsaber battles seen in the films. Brought to life by Respawn, the studio behind the widely popular battle royale Apex Legends, players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and force abilities.
There are also platforming sections and puzzles to solve in this galaxy-spanning adventure. Star Wars fans will recognise iconic locations, weapons, gear, and enemies, while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries.
“When Respawn approached us with the idea for this game, we were immediately supportive,” said Steve Blank, Director, Franchise Content & Strategy, Lucasfilm Story Group.
“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.”
