New Star Wars Game Announced and Coming Out this Year
So, if you are a Star Wars fan, there is no doubt that youve been watching, or attending, the Star Wars Celebration that took place in Chicago in the last few days. During this celebration of everything Star Wars, the upcoming game from EA and Respawn Entertainment, that takes place in the Star Wars universe was announced. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a new third-person action adventure game and will launch on November 15, 2019 on various platforms, including the Xbox One.
The game is said to feature an authentic story set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith,when the Jedi have fallen. Fans will play as a young Padawan named Cal Kestis, brought to life by Cameron Monaghan (Shameless, Gotham), who has survived Order 66, the Emperors secret decree to eliminate all Jedi. Players must pick up the pieces of Cal’s shattered past to complete his training and master the art of the iconic lightsaber - all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.
Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand-new Star Wars planet and one of several new locations introduced in the game. Cal is hiding from the Empire in plain sight but is forced to go on the run when he exposes his Force powers. Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, as well as run into some familiar faces, all while being accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1.
Cal’s flight from the Empire is made even more dangerous as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi. Assisting the Second Sister are the terrifying Purge Troopers, special Imperial forces trained to seek out Jedi and aid the Inquisitors in their dastardly work.
Respawn and EA say that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is designed with gameplay as a top priority in order to deliver the kind of intense Star Wars lightsaber battles that are seen in the films. Brought to life by Respawn, players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities. Players will also use traversal and other platforming abilities to strategically overcome opponents and solve puzzles in their path across this galaxy-spanning adventure. Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear, and enemies, while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars.
We know a ton of Star Wars fans are excited for this game, as are we, but we have to be cautious given that this game has seen delays and reboots over the past few years. We have a lot of hope, something that is always highlighted in the Star Wars universe, and its this hope we are living on for this game.
