According to Stig Asmussen, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s story length is not going to be short. Asmussen has also mentioned that the game’s story is going to be a quality experience. This information was revealed in a recent interview.
The game is confirmed to be single player only and will not feature any microtransactions, making players suspect that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will not feature a lengthy campaign or story. That said, the game’s creative director, Stig Asmussen has now confirmed that Star Wards Jedi Fallen’s Order 66 plot will not be a short experience.
In terms of timeframe, it’s not going to be a short game. I’ve read some stuff. Comments like, ‘Oh, it’s going to be a five-hour game,’ after Vince [Zampella] announced that we’re going to be single-player only, and no microtransactions, and that kind of stuff. It’s going to be a quality experience, said Asmussen.
Unfortunately, the game director didn’t discuss how long it is going to be. If we are to assume, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s gameplay length is going to be somewhere between 8-12 hours. Respawn Entertainment is not ready to talk about it in details yet but that’s likely to change at E3 2019.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is based on the events that took place after Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, during which the players will have to take the role of a padawan who survived the Order 66. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s focus on Cal Kestis after the initiation of Order 66 “opens up a lot of gameplay opportunities and rich story threads” according to Respawn founder Vince Zampella.
Due to the aforementioned events, Cal will be chased throughout the story by a lethal inquisitor. As for the game’s combat, Zampella is calling it “thoughtful” as you’ll have to examine the enemies and find their weaknesses to defeat them.
Apart from the story, it’s confirmed that the game is being developed using the Unreal Engine 4 instead of Frostbite which is used in most games published by EA.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is currently in development for Sony’s PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One and PC. The game will launch on PC via Electronic Arts’ Origin service. EA has also confirmed that there will be no Collector’s Edition for the upcoming Star Wars game. There also no DLC plans for the game yet.
