Jedi: Fallen Order Officially Revealed at Star Wars Celebration

The Rise Of Skywalker

At Star Wars Celebration, Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm revealed several details about Star War Jedi: Fallen Order along with a trailer.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15, 2019. We know the game is coming out in Fall 2019, so that rumor sounds like a large possibility with it being so close to Christmas and the release of the newly titled Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Iger says that the company has made a decision to hold off on confirming and setting release dates for future films.

The game will star Cameron Monaghan as Cal Kestis, a Jedi Padawan who survived Order 66 and the destruction of the Jedi Order. There, Cal is attempting to hide from the Empire in plain sight, but after exposing his Force powers ends up on the run again. You can see in the trailer above that Cal works on a scrapper on a planet named Bracca.

Though it was good news to hear that Leia's presence would continue in Star Wars 9 via footage of Fisher herself, it's not surprising to hear that her role will be limited. The little droid was featured in a piece of Jedi Fallen Order artwork that was leaked by Amazon. Posing a bigger threat, however, is the Inquisitor, Second Sister, is a familiar enemy to fans of Star Wars Rebel.

What we know for sure is that Fallen Order will be a singleplayer experience, Respawn having previous confirmed this.

Respawn CEO, Vince Zampella, reiterated that this is a single-player, narrative-driven game featuring no multiplayer and no microtransactions, much to the excitement the audience at the Celebration Stage. According to EA, "players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities".

If fans weren't already excited about the long-awaited Star Wars; The Rise of Skywalker, the first trailer dropping yesterday certainly sparked that anticipation, but what some fans may not be prepared for is that the next installment is also the finale for the primary saga, and though J.J. Abrams brought the sequel trilogy to life in exhilarating fashion in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he looked to someone from the past to help bring the saga to a close: franchise creator himself, George Lucas.

More recently, EA pulled the plug on another singleplayer Star Wars title that was in development at Visceral Games.

Earlier this week, Fallen Order received its first major teaser image.
