With the release window officially confirmed by EA for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, it’s time to gather what little information is available out there about Respawn Entertainment’s foray into the Star Wars series. This game is shrouded in mystery, much like the Sith order, but the hints are there if you know where to look for them. This guide will go over the release date, any official confirmations about the game, and an intriguing rumour about more specific details.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order release date
It’s been confirmed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released in Autumn 2019, alongside a bunch of other EA games, though they’re not Star Wars related.
Surprisingly, no game footage has been shown so far. That said, it’s highly likely that we’ll be seeing more of it during EA’s own event that they traditionally have around E3 time. Some information was posted in a blog post by game direcotr Stig Asmussen (formerly of SCE Santa Monica – the developers behind God of War), in which he confirms it is a third-person game that’s single player only. There will also be lightsaber duels, which will surprise nobody – it’s practically a prerequisite.
The official website also mentions that the game will be set “after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith”, focusing on one of the “younglings” Padawan missed when he went on his killing spree. Presumably, the Padawan grows up in exile from the Jedi order, since they’d probably be dead otherwise.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Reddit rumour
A couple of months ago, a reddit user by the name of “Xyzsvtabc” posted some more potential details about the game. According to the leak:
They said this is coming out in November. It takes place about 5 years after Revenge of the Sith and follows the main character whose name is Cal (I forget his last name). He’s was a [padawan] that survived the efforts to kill all of the remaining jedi. Not a ton of gameplay info but some of the other story lines are that he has a mentor figure who is a woman named Ceres. The only other thing I remember is them talking about other characters they would come across from some of the comics. The mentioned the 9th sister and 2nd sister? Something about Inquisitors? I wish I could remember more about this. They showed a ton of artwork.
And seriously, that’s all we know so far. Details about this game are currently very light, but we will be back with more information, trailers, screenshots, and whatever else is released by EA between now and the Autumn release day.
