Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Unveils First Trailer and Release Date

Here's when you'll get your hands on Respawn's Star Wars game.

Respawn's upcoming Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order, now has a trailer, release date, and new details following its official reveal today at the Star Wars Celebration. Jedi: Fallen Order is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15, 2019.

Like the leaks suggested, Jedi: Fallen Order stars Cal Kestis, a former Padawan who survived the Jedi purge of Order 66. Now he's hiding from the Empire and keeping his Jedi powers hidden, only obviously things don't go according to plan.

Prior to the reveal, Respawn tweeted that Jedi: Fallen Order would be a single-player experience with no microtransactions and no loot boxes. This is a big change compared to EA's previous Star Wars games like Star Wars Battlefront 2, which garnered controversy for its microtransactions.

One of the big things about Jedi: Fallen Order is that it's officially part of Star Wars canon. One of the main antagonists in Jedi: Fallen Order is the Second Sister, a force-wielding assassin working for the Empire. Cal's robot companion BD-1 is even "voiced" by Ben Burtt, who created the sound of Star Wars' most famous characters, including R2-D2.

The single-player focus is a big change from EA's recent games and could suggest that the company isn't writing off the genre, especially for its Star Wars games. There's now a chance that EA Vancouver's "smaller" Star Wars game could also be single-player, now.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is coming out on November 15 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Check out our Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order guide for more info.
