Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order | Looming in the Dark

EA kicked off their big E3 conference this year with a fifteen-minute preview of the upcoming title, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the much hyped upcoming single player game, canon to the Star Wars universe by Respawn Entertainment. From what can be parsed from the showcase it seems like a blend of the old Force Unleashed games and something like Uncharted or Assassin’s Creed.

The game takes place after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Order 66, in which all the Jedi were killed off by the Empire, or at least that was the plan. Of course some Jedi survived like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and our protagonist, Cel Kestis.

The gameplay showcased at the event opens on Kashyyyk, the Wookiee planet. Cel must infiltrate a tree sap extracting facility to free some imprisoned Wookiees, which is a sentence I just typed. Along the way we see some familiar faces like Saw Gerrera and K2-S0 (or at least a droid of the same model) from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as well as what I think was Chewbacca, although I suppose it could have been any other Wookiee.

Beyond the gameplay preview there wasn’t a whole lot of further detail given regarding the game, but the team seems excited to be bringing players a thrilling single player experience that is actually canon to the overall Star Wars universe. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will released November 15th of this year on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
