Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – release date, trailers and news

Hold on to your lightsabers: there's a new Star Wars game in development, and it's called Jedi: Fallen Order.

The reveal came in a surprisingly low-key fashion during EA's conference at E3 2018, during an off-the-cuff interview with Vince Zambella, co-founder of Respawn Entertainment (of Titanfall fame). And, thanks to the 2019 Star Wars Celebration weekend, we've now got our first look at the game, too.

We've been treated to a teaser trailer, which you can see below. This isn't actual gameplay, but it gives you a flavor of the story. Players take on the role of Jedi-in-hiding Cal Kestis, EA and Respawn Entertainment revealed at the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago.

While fans of the galactic franchise have seen official tie-ins in the form of Star Wars Battlefront I and II, the new entry takes on a different tack, focusing on a single-player experience more in line with 2008's The Force Unleashed – and we have all the concrete news and wild speculation you could want below.

Cut to the chaseWhat is it? A new single-player Star Wars game from the creators of TitanfallWhat can I play it on? PS4, Xbox One, and PCWhen can I play it? November 15 2019Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order release date

EA has now confirmed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will release on November 15, 2019, just in time for Christmas and the long-awaited release of Star Wars Episode IX: Rise of Skywalker.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order trailers

At the time of writing, we have a teaser trailer, which we've posted above. It doesn't show any actual gameplay, but it fills in the story, and it's better than nothing.

You'll take the role of Cal Kestis, a former Jedi padawan (AKA, a student of the Force). The game appears to be set in the period following Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith – the fateful time when the evil Emperor Palpatine executed Order 66, which saw the Jedi ambushed and killed by their own supporting Clone Trooper soldiers. Few survived and were forced into hiding.

And that seems to include Cal! A youngster only partially through his training, Cal has been forced into hiding, working construction sites and trying to keep a low-profile as the Jedi-hunting Imperial Inquisition continues to track down any remaining survivors.

The story trailer shows Cal having to use his Force powers to defend himself against rogue troopers, and to save a friend from falling from an accident. The trailer suggests the game will have some lavish set-pieces and environments, and hinted at a very-story-driven experience to enjoy.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order news and rumors

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was livestreamed – check it outWe already know that on April 13 we got our first proper look at Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, as part of the annual Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago.

But luckily for fans that couldn't make the trek to the event, EA livestreamed it.

Check out EA's announcement tweet below for a chance to replay it:

"Join the head of Respawn Entertainment, @VinceZampella, and Game Director, Stig Asmussen [...] to be the first to learn about this holiday’s highly anticipated action adventure game, #StarWarsJediFallenOrder."1:30 PM CT on April 13th! And yes, there will be a livestream. https://t.co/tLPDJVZ7WfMarch 22, 2019

The galaxy-wide premiere saw the head of Respawn Entertainment, Vince Zampella, and game director, Stig Asmussen (whose previous work includes God of War 3), revealing the much-anticipated details of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order toysDisney has announced that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order merchandise will become available in October 2019 suggesting, not only that the game will release around that time, but that the company expects it to be a title (or series) with a long life-span within Star Wars fandom.

Development is well underway"It’s very far along in development, and having spent time with it recently myself, it plays spectacularly well," EA CEO Andrew Wilson revealed during a quarterly earnings call (via Seeking Alpha). "This game truly captures the fantasy of becoming a Jedi, and we will have a lot more to share soon."

We will start seeing more soon"You'll start to see in the next few months glimpses of the Star Wars game and I think you'll be blown away by what you see," said EA CFO Blake Jorgensen during a quarterly earnings call (via Seeking Alpha). "We've played 20 plus minutes of it last week and it is exceptional in terms of its like level of polish depth and what living inside of the Star Wars world is a Jedi and I think people will be blown away by."

A Padawan called Cal? ConfirmedAccording to rumored information from a Star Wars marketing day (which obviously made its way to Reddit) the story will take place roughly five years after Revenge of the Sith and will follow surviving Padawan Cal (via GamesRadar). This rumor also states that one of the game's main plot points will revolve around Cal's mentor figure - a woman named Ceres. Both these names are now confirmed.

It's set after Revenge of the SithWe don't know the specific time in which the game is set, but we've heard that it will take place at some point between Episodes 3 and 4, after the end of Revenge of the Sith but before Luke Skywalker's appearance in A New Hope.

This places it after the Galactic Empire hunted the 10,000-strong Jedi Order practically to extinction, leaving only a small fraction of Jedi alive (aka Order 66). With the promise that the game will be set 'in the dark times', it sounds like our Jedi protagonist may be more the hunted than the hunter.

Could famous Jedi appear?Playing as "a surviving Padawan", technically meaning a Jedi apprentice rather than a fully-fledged master of the Force, Cal could do with some extra training. Given the dearth of living mentors left to train you, it's possible Obi-Wan Kenobi or Yoda – or some less high-profile Jedi, like Quinlan Vos – will appear in a supporting role. 

The single-player mode comes first – and there will be no microtransactionsRespawn co-founder Vince Zambella tweeted about the upcoming game, describing it as an 'SP' (single-player) story. 

It looks like a multiplayer component won't be available at all in the game – surprising given EA's focus in recent years on games that extend beyond a single play session. Even more surprising is the fact that there will be no microtransactions at all, ever, in Fallen Jedi. It's great news considering the industry falls over itself to offer chunks of games piecemeal these days – but don't be surprised if that means there will be an aggressive DLC system instead.

I find your lack of faith disturbingIt's been a bit of a fallow year for Star Wars, with Star Wars: A Solo Story struggling in cinemas and the negative player response to EA Dice's Star Wars: Battlefront 2 – largely in reaction to its prevalent use of microtransactions – still in recent memory.

Jedi: Fallen Order has been handed to a different studio, albeit one that's still a subsidiary of EA. But Respawn has garnered a lot of respect as the studio behind Titanfall and Titanfall 2, two critically acclaimed sci-fi action games that pit players against each other in giant mechanized suits, and which both came with strong single-player and multiplayer offerings. 

So, while we haven't heard much about Fallen Order so far, it looks like the game is in safe hands.
