After a couple of teases, EA and Respawn Entertainment have finally revealed the first details about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, including its release date and on what platforms players can expect it. Cal, a Padawan in training, goes into hiding and ends up working with a clan of scrappers, who salvage valuable materials from decommissioned capital ships.
Narratively, the game focuses on concealing your powers and waiting for the right moment to strike.
Originally created by modder Serenity and then further expanded by modder JaceSolaris, SerenityJediEngine2019 is a rebuild of the released 2015 SerenityJediEngine, featuring many code fixes and additional features, and supporting both single and multiplayer.
The game has been in development since 2015 at Respawn Entertainment. From the look of things, however, the actor isn't quite done with the role and may be causing some trouble in the Star Wars universe one last time.
Fallen Order winds back the clock to when the Jedi, once the Republic's most powerful defenders, became an endangered species. "They're basically kinda born out of the stormtrooper", director Stig Asmussen said, but "the game is not a button-masher". "Staff from Uncharted, Batman, Metal Gear and Call of Duty". According to Respawn, the combat system is easy to pick up but takes some practice to master. Cal is portrayed by Cameron Monaghan (Joker from the TV show Gotham). He works on derelict ships on Braka, keeping his head down.
All we can do is trust in the Force... By using excised information and unused concept art from The Force Awakens, it's able to shed some light on what our heroes might be doing returning to the remains. There's also an appearance by what appears to be game's antagonist, the black-masked Second Sister Inquisitor.
It looks like Cal is joined by a robot companion named BD-1. Has lights and other things that can be upgraded. It was described at one point as a boy and his dog relationship. But the old Jedi Knight games always allowed the player - and bosses - to have some degree of sponginess. She's joined by new Purge Troopers, Inquisitorium soldiers specially-trained to fight and kill Jedi. In one of the most perplexing questions that the trailer raises, this excellent video tries to give some context on what this might imply for the plot of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
As for the lightsaber, it will "change and evolve" during the story, but that's about all the panelists could say. He happens to be white, and a number of fans weren't taking it too kindly.
"We have not announced any specific plans for movies thereafter", Iger told Bloomberg Thursday.
