EA Confirms Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Will Not Have a Season Pass

No DLC or microtransactions either.

We already know that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be a single-player affair, absent of the multiplayer and live-service elements that have driven recent EA-published games. But this single-player goal extends to DLC as well, as EA Star Wars community manager Jay Ingram confirms there are no plans for DLC, season passes, or microtransactions.

EA is taking a new approach with Jedi: Fallen Order, moving away from live-service games with long lifespans, in favor of a self-contained single-player adventure. Players familiar with EA's preference for live-service games are somewhat skeptical and EA has acknowledged their skepticism.

"['Angry' Joe Vargas is] understandably skeptical and there's nothing wrong with that. It's on us to win back players," Ingram says in response to one popular critic's reactions to the new Jedi: Fallen Order will be single-player only.

To be fair, news of a single-player Star Wars game is hard to imagine considering EA's previous two Star Wars games, Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2, have been online, live-service games. EA also canceled Amy Hennig's planned single-player Star Wars game and moved the project to EA Vancouver where it could be more future-forward (read: live-service).

So, it's news that all the official EA channels for Jedi: Fallen Order are reinforcing the fact that the upcoming action game from Respawn really won't include any live-service elements, microtransactions, or even DLC.

I still believe that plans for the latter could change depending on how well Jedi: Fallen Order performs. After all, single-player games like Insomniac's Spider-Man got a limited set of narrative DLC.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is coming to PC, Ps4, and Xbox One on November 15. Check out our Jedi: Fallen Order guide for more of our coverage.
