Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment announced at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago a new third-person action adventure game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on November 15.

View the reveal trailer below:


Here is an overview of the game:

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will 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 (ShamelessGotham), who has survived Order 66, the Emperor’s 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.

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, a studio known for high-quality games that are both visually beautiful and technically masterful, 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.

I know I shouldn't get my hopes up given EA's recent track record, but wow.

I want it.

Its sad to know that there are idiots out there that will still preorder this...

I feel like the setting they chose for this game is kinda limited. No matter how cool the Inquisitors and other Jedi hunters may look, in reality they're all garbage-tier compared to Vader and Palpatine and obviously nothing can happen to either of them due to the canon of the movies. Had they made this game anywhere in the Old Republic's timeline, you could've faced real Sith Lords who can rival a Jedi.

I think you are overestimating the common Jedis. Yes, the likes of Anakin, Obi Wan and Mace Windu were capable of putting up a fight against a Sith Lord, but the common Jedis didn't stand a chance. I mean, we actually saw Assaj Ventress, General Grievous and Savage Opress (none of which were actually Sith) killing multiple Jedis (sometimes even at the same time).

@chakkra I get what you're saying but since this new Jedi character will be the hero of the game, I think it's fair to believe he will be considerably strong thus the Inquisitors will be kinda garbage in comparison. Maybe he won't be as strong as Starkiller from The Force Unleashed games, but still. Both Assaj and Grievous weren't Sith Lords and killed Jedi, true, but they were both trained by Dooku who was one of the most formidable Jedi Masters of his time who could fight in equal terms with Yoda. Both Grievous and Assaj are definitely a lot stronger than any Inquisitor during the Empire era. I can't speak about Savage Opress since I'm not interested in the Clone Wars CG show.

Whether it's good or not will depend entirely on how much of an involvement EA has in all this.


Azzanation (on 13 April 2019)

Looks promising, lets hope the same strategy applies to this game and that's EA staying out of it.
