Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Promises "No Microtransactions" as Release Date Leaks

Respawn Entertainment is offering big promises for its first Star Wars game.

Yesterday Star Wars Celebration in Chicago played host to the full teaser trailer of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but today is all about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment. EA's use of the Star Wars license has been shoddy at best and folks are looking to Respawn, fresh off the launch of Apex Legends, to turn us back to the Light Side of the Force.

Prior to today's panel at Star Wars Celebration (on Twitch at 2:30pm ET/11:30am PT), we're already getting news about Jedi: Fallen Order. One fan over at the Fallen Order subreddit scored some pins from the event, showing a Purge Trooper, and BD-1, the tiny robot companion shown in the first teaser images. On the back of these pins is the proposed release date for Jedi: Fallen Order: November 15, 2019. The original posters didn't have a full picture of the back of the pins, which was later provided by internet tipster Nibel.

Ahead of the panel, EA and Respawn have been teasing the game. They've shown concept art with a lone Jedi with a Venator-class Star Destroyer crashed in the background, a broken lightsaber, and a brief clip of our hero cutting open a door. The images come with several taglines, pointing to a Jedi in hiding: "Accept the past. Don't stand out. Trust no one."

The official EA Star Wars account also promised to avoid some of the pitfalls that have tripped up EA's previous Star Wars games. "No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won't be adding them. A single-player Star Wars story for those of you who are ready to become a Jedi," said the official account.

Today's panel at Star Wars Celebration is scheduled to last an hour, with Respawn Entertainment co-founder Vince Zampella and director Stig Asmussen in attendance. It'll be streaming on Twitch, starting at 2:30pm ET/11:30am PT.
