A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (or in a conference hall in Los Angeles), EA unveiled gameplay footage of their new Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order game.
The gameplay was shown at the EA Play 2019 event and featured former Jedi padawan Cal Kestis allied with guerrilla fighter Saw Gererra, as the two plot to take down imperial forces on the Wookie-inhabited planet of Kashyyyk.
The player is tasked with breaking into a refinery, where he encounters stormtroopers. Using his force abilities alongside his trusty lightsaber, Cal creates all sorts of havoc. Working alongside Cal is his droid BD-1, who can help break into different locked areas and provide schematics for the budding Jedi.
The gameplay seems to be a mixture of other Star Wars games like Force Unleashed alongside environmental traversing titles like Uncharted. One interesting sequence showed Cal pulling a stormtrooper to him, where he was then impaled through the chest with a blue lightsaber.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is set to launch on November 15th, 2019 and will be a single player campaign title available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is set after the events of Star Wars Episode III and sees Cal trying to remain undercover as Imperial forces continue their purge of all things Jedi.
The title has generated a lot of hype, which is sorely needed after the disappointments of the recent Star Wars Battlefront series.
