Respawn Entertainment (developer of Titanfall, owned by EA) finally revealed a trailer for the upcoming Star Wars Game Jedi: Fallen Order, in which you play an Order 66 survivor, a young male Padawan named Cal Kestis, who tries to blend in. Barriss Offee is supposed to be featured in the game as well. It was already revealed yesterday that the game will be single player only and that there won’t be any microtransactions. So fans of story based games may finally get something from EA. The game has a release date of November 15th. There’s one thing however which raises eyebrows. Respawn merely released a story trailer, no actual gameplay footage was shown. Mere seven months before release you would think they have at least something to show. That they didn’t present any gameplay at all should make fans somewhat wary.
Maybe the game will once more be developed in typical EA fashion: big crunch time towards the end where the devs will code 24/7, six months straight, with the game still not really finished on release date and needing several patches post release. Let’s hope the game will actually be finished and more or less bug-free when it is released in November!
Also revealed earlier today on the Star Wars Show Live (around the 5 hour 4 minute mark) was the following: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will have NO microtransactions and NO multiplayer, it will strictly be a story focused single player game. The statement was made by Vince Zampalla, head of Respawn Entertainment, who develop the game. I suppose this news is something that should elate all gamers who have been asking for something like that for years now. Maybe EA have learned their lesson not just with Battlefront II, but also with missteps like Anthem. More details about Fallen Order will be revealed on Saturday, so stay tuned! But this news alone makes me a lot more excited for it.
In case you’ve forgotten it, this year we’ll not only get a new Star Wars movie, but there’s also a new Star Wars game in development, which is supposed to be released in late 2019. EA is not the most popular video game company (and I am being nice here), but after several cancelled story based Star Wars games “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” will most likely see the light of day. Amazon is already listing “The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” book on their page. And they even updated the page and added a cover graphic for the book. So what you see below is apparently the official logo of the game. It’s in line with the movies and previous EA games. However, this will be the first Star Wars game developed by EA which actually focuses on story. You will play as an Order 66 survivor, a few years after the events of Revenge of the Sith. And remember, the game will be canon. I am curious what they come up with and somewhat excited for this game. Let’s hope it will give us a worthy successor to games like KOTOR and won’t be yet another cash grab and lootbox travesty. EA needs some good press for a change, especially following games such as Anthem.
