We might finally be getting exactly what we wanted in a modern Star Wars video game, thanks to Respawn Entertainment, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is nearly within our grasp.
Here’s everything we know so far about the Fallen Order release date, latest Fallen Order news, and general Fallen Order gameplay details revealed so far.
What Is Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Release Date?
First of all, let’s get the most important thing out of the way. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order release date is set for November 15th, 2019. That’s later this year so not a very long wait ahead before we can get our hands on the game.
As for the Fallen Order gameplay, we haven’t seen a gameplay trailer just yet. Respawn Entertainment has shared details here and there of what to expect though. Jedi Fallen Order is now available to pre-order on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Will Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Have Multiplayer?
One important thing to address since this is EA after all is that the Jedi Fallen Order won’t have any form of multiplayer. It won’t have any microtransactions either. The only exclusivity is in the form of some pre-order cosmetics.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order will also not be in an open-world setting. Respawn Entertainment did clarify that the game won’t be very linear either. It’ll be a more exploration emphasized route with a sandbox feel to it.
The combat of Jedi Fallen Order has been compared to Sekiro Shadows Die Twice and Respawn Entertainment themselves have stated that the game will be very melee oriented. Star Wars Fallen Order will heavily cater to fans of lightsaber fights.
What Do We Know About Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Gameplay?
The story trailer we were shown was running in-engine and while it wasn’t representative of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order gameplay, there were hints and points to go on.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order gameplay design allows players to traverse the environment and use a wide variety of move mix-ups with their lightsabers. The goal with its gameplay is to make you feel like a Jedi. This means you’ll go through puzzles, tough enemies, and melee combats.
Jedi Fallen Order has a growth system that affects both your character as well as your lightsaber. Perhaps this is similar to how you were able to get crystals and customize your saber in the Force Unleashed? For the character, it’s easy enough to guess a skill tree or some similar form of progression.
What Do We Know About Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Story and Setting?
The story of the game is set after the events of Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. Players will be in the shoes of Cal Estis, a young Jedi Padawan who managed to survive the initial onslaught of Order 66. He’s now on the run in plain sight and after an unintentional use of the Force, has made himself shown on the Imperial radar.
Because of this, you will be hunted throughout the game by a lethal inquisitor. Facing her in different parts of the story will be the most fun parts of the game no doubt. Word of advice though, don’t walk into the game expecting a happy ending. We all know that the Jedi were eventually wiped out, so Cal might not be riding into the double sunset once we’re done.
Will There Be Companions In Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order?
We can also expect a load of classic Star Wars content like a droid companion named BD-1 and a wide cast of unique characters. Furthermore, there will be new planets introduced to the lore such as Bracca.
Jedi Fallen Order gameplay may not feature an open-world, but we do know that it will be a galaxy-spanning adventure. It will include a heavy emphasis on using both your lightsaber as well as the force to overcome your obstacles.
More details may surface as we approach the Jedi Fallen Order release date. We have the trailer to keep rewatching until then. Expect a gameplay trailer soon as well.
Will There Be DLC For Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order?
According to EA and Respawn Entertainment, there won’t be any Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order DLC. The base game will conclude the story and while there may be plans for a sequel, there doesn’t seem to be anything on the cards for Jedi Fallen Order DLC. Developers seem to be following in the footsteps of Sony Santa Monica, the studio that never released God of War DLC even after fan-demand. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order DLC won’t be happening but of course, developers may change their minds about the DLC in the future.
