Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order First Ever Gameplay Will Premiere at EA Play During E3

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order First Ever Gameplay Will Premiere at EA Play During E3

We know when we're going to get Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay.

Tomorrow is May 4th, meaning it's time for everyone's favorite Star Wars-related celebration day based on a pun. To celebrate EA has announced that the first-ever gameplay look for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will premiere at EA Play.

EA, which currently holds an exclusive license to develop Star Wars games, has announced that gameplay for Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order, will be showcased at EA's annual EA Play event. EA Play takes place the weekend before E3 and will begin on June 7.

Jedi: Fallen Order was unveiled earlier this year at the Star Wars Celebration. But only a cinematic trailer was revealed, which outlined the game's plot and main character. Taking place after the Jedi extermination Order 66, Jedi: Fallen Order stars Cal Kestis, a former Jedi Padawan whose master was killed by the Empire.

Kestis lives his life hiding his past and Jedi abilities, until the day he doesn't and the Empire begins hunting him down again. Respawn, previously known for first-person shooters like Titanfall, is developing Fallen Order with an emphasis on purposeful lightsaber combat.

EA Play is EA's unique event hosted during E3. Technically it's a separate event, but it's basically where EA makes its E3 announcements. This year, the company says it's skipping a stage presentation in favor of straight gameplay and livestreams hosted by famous streamers.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is coming out on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15. Check out our Jedi: Fallen Order guide for more of our coverage on Respawn's Star Wars game.
