Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Box Art
Just below, you can check out the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order box art. The reveal came just before E3 2019, where Fallen Order is due to be shown in greater detail.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Gameplay
Just below, you can catch the debut gameplay footage for Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. This took place on June 8, when Respawn debuted the Jedi Fallen Order gameplay for the first time.
And now in the list below, we'll be recapping all the new gameplay details from the Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order gameplay:
- There's a little bit of wall-running sprinkled in for good measure.
- We'll be visiting Kashykk, home of the Wookies.
- There's a little robot accompanying Cal, that rides around on his back, known as 'BD'.
- Cal uses force powers to traverse the environment, pushing objects over to create new paths.
- You can throw your lightsaber in combat for ranged attacks.
- Cal has an ability that temporarily slows down time in combat.
- Every enemy has a health bar above their heads.
- There's a 'stun' meter on enemies, that you wear down to pull off dramatic finsher attacks.
- The gameplay looked to be running at 60FPS, although the demo could have been running on a high-end PC.
- Cal has a double jump, which will likely factor into platforming.
- Dodging and rolling plays a huge role in the combat of Fallen Order.
- Likewise, it seems like you can parry to deflect ranged attacks with your lightsaber.
- There are multiple planets to visit, half new, half known.
Respawn also revealed that there'll be skill points in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. You can then take and spend these skill points on upgrading your force abilities, which include the force 'push' and 'pull' abilities that you can see the demo above.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Saw Gerrera
During the EA Play event on June 8, a bunch of gameplay footage was shown for Jedi: Fallen Order. Saw Gerrera was featured in the trailer, the very same character from Rogue One. Forest Whittaker reprises his role here, voicing Saw and providing his likeness.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Trailer
The debut Jedi: Fallen Order trailer was finally revealed on April 13. In the trailer, which you can see just below, we see Star Wars newcomer Cal Ketsis living a solitary life in hiding, as a Jedi that originally survived the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.
The new Jedi Fallen Order trailer certainly sets up Cal for multiple clashes with The Empire. Fans have speculated that Iden Versio, protagonist of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and played by Janina Gavankar, will be one of the many antagonists of the game, but we'll have to wait and see to find out for sure.
So far, there aren't any established Star Wars characters confirmed for Jedi: Fallen Order. Don't expect to see the likes of Obi Wan or Vader making an appearance, because this seems like an entirely original story from Respawn.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Setting
At the debut reveal event for Jedi: Fallen Order all the way back at E3 2018, the setting for the game was revealed. Vince Zampella stated that the game would be set in between Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, and Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope.
"It's a time where the Jedi are being hunted," Zampella said. The title of the game definitely alludes to the fact that Jedi: Fallen Order takes place during or immediately after the downfall of the Jedi Order, as seen back in Revenge of the Sith. The debut trailer for the game, which you can see above, confirmed the time period.
