Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's Full E3 Demo Released, Shows Exploration and Crew Interactions

The longer cut gives a glimpse at how you'll tackle the story at large.

While everyone at home saw a small portion of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, those at EA Play got to see a longer cut behind closed doors that showed off more of the game's exploration and out-of-combat moments. Well, now that portion is public.

Posted to the EA Star Wars YouTube, you can see the full behind closed doors gameplay demo that EA Play attendees saw. It runs close to half an hour long, but it gives a much broader view of what Fallen Order will be, beyond just the lightsaber combat.

This is the same demo we saw at EA Play 2019, and it's still pretty rad, especially the parts where Cal is climbing up the side of the AT-AT and commandeering it. We also see some of the interesting ways that you can take side paths or diverge from the main route. As developers later told me, you can approach the planets in your own order, heading where you think is most important like Kingdom Hearts. You can also chat with your crew to get their take on the current mission and characters you're interacting with, even getting some dialogue options.

While you won't be slicing off any Stormtrooper limbs with your lightsaber due to Disney and Lucasfilm guidelines, the combat from both the demo and our own hands-on at E3 2019 is surprisingly solid.

It feels almost Souls-like, an influence the developers proudly wore on their shoulders when I talked to them at EA Play. In an effort to make the lightsaber problem work in a video game setting, the team looked to previous work by FromSoftware and ended up designing a system surprisingly akin to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

You'll be able to play the whole game on November 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. If you want to catch up on what we know so far or rewatch old trailers, you can head over to our need-to-know guide for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
