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.
