Respawn boss Vince Zampella has confirmed that Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is a single player only game, there are no microtransactions or multiplayer. It’s completely opposite of what Star Wars Battlefront 2 was.
Zampella confirmed it during Star Wars Celebration day 1 stream. He said “Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player story game… No multiplayer, no microtransactions. It’s a story game.” His words were met with applause and cheers from the audience.
After that, other developer took it to Twitter to confirm what he said. Producer Blair Brown on Twitter: So happy to be working on a single player story-focused game again.”
The developer’s decision to make it a single player focused game aligns with the previous statement from the game’s writer Chris Avellone when he said that the story is very important to Respawn Entertainment.
Vince Zampella then went on to talk about the game’s story. He told the audience that you will play as a Padawan who has survived the Order 66.
The game takes place during “the time after the fall of the Jedi Order” following Episode 3. That’s pretty much it but we will know more about the game during a panel today at Star Wars Celebration event.
Apart from the story, it’s also confirmed that the game is being developed using the Unreal Engine 4 instead of Frostbite which is used by every EA-owned studios.
It was reported by Kotaku’s Jason Schreier and later by an EA community manager on Reddit. It was expected to happen since Respawn is using modified source engine for its successful battle royale game Apex Legends and Titanfall 2.
That is great news since Electronic Art’s recently published Anthem was developed with Frostbite Engine. The game turned out to be nothing but a failure for the company and huge disappointment for gamers.
One of the reasons for such issues was Frostbite itself as the engine isn’t developed for RPG games. This means that Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order won’t be full of problems, glitches, bugs, and like Anthem.
There are also various leaks about the game and its story. Jedi Fallen Order’s gameplay is also being compared to Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Interested folks can read the leaked information here (spoiler alert).
