Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order — Bringing Star Wars into the Dark Ages


The first trailer for the Star Wars Jedi: Fall Order game released at Star Wars Celebration.

During the second day of Star Wars Celebration, the crowd was treated to a first trailer and glimpse into the upcoming game by Respawn Entertainment and EA entitled, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Star Wars fans have been somewhat hesitant regarding the outcome of this game.

After what happened with Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2, as well as EA canceling an open world Star Wars game that was seven months in development, many Star Wars fans were left indifferent and unsure of this game potential. It is up to Respawn and Star Wars to ease their fears.

The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order portion of Star Wars celebration began with a crisp and emotional story trailer about the characters, world, and story of Fallen Order. Immediately Vince Zampella, the head of Respawn Entertainment, the and the game director of Fallen Order were both sure to note that the trailer was specifically created in game to show the story, not necessarily the gameplay. That spoke volumes.

Whether during E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) or other game announcements, game developers and studio leads will parade finely detailed CGI footage to the audience of gamers, only to churn out several gameplay videos months later that look nowhere near the product they were shown beforehand (ie. Star Wars The Old Republic). Developers willing to be honest at the forefront is a refreshing step for both all the parties involved.

After the trailer, the developers went into depth about the story and the characters seen in Jedi Fallen Order. This game takes place during the height of the Galactic Empire seen in cinemas near the end of Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith. The main character will see the outcome of Order 66, a decree from Chancellor Palpatine that ordered the hunt and subsequent execution of every Jedi alive in the galaxy by any means necessary. While using the newly acquired stormtroopers, the Empire also employed Inquisitors, as seen in the popular television show Star Wars: Rebels. These dark lords were given free rein to specifically hunt any Jedi or force wielding users.

The playable main character of this story is Cal Kestis, a Jedi Padawan who must hide in plain sight to escape Chancellor Palpatine’s decree and trust in the force to master its ways in hopes of survival. This character is brand new within the Star Wars universe canon and was brought to life with help from writers previously attached to the Star Wars Clone Wars television series as well as Star Wars Rebels. Cal must overcome his instinct to stay unattached and fight with the force to survive. Cal Kestis is performance captured by rising actor Cameron Monaghan (Shameless and Gotham).

This story, as explained by the developers, is a dark tale. Focusing on the “dark times” is something that has not been previously portrayed on screen, whether on tv or on the big screen, and a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order also is a single-player story with no multiplayer focus, will have no micro-transactions, something EA in particular is notorious for, and will release on Nov. 15, 2019, on PS4, Xbox, and PC.
