Electronic Arts gaming conference was scheduled for last Saturday, and it didn’t disappoint. The game that opened the event could be no other than Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and we got to watch fourteen minutes of amazing gameplay footage that showed the protagonist of the game Cal Kestis fighting against several creatures and imperial soldiers as he progresses through an industrial area in the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk. Cal is a young padawan that has managed to escape alive from the execution of Order 66 that implies the extermination of all Jedis.

As you can see in the trailer, Cal is accompanied by his trusty droid, and despite he is not a fully trained Jedi yet, he can make use of several Force abilities to push and pull enemies and even “slow time.” He also wields a lightsaber that can be used both offensively and defensively to deflect blaster shots. Since he will start as an untrained padawan, we can assume that the footage in the video shows an advanced part of the storyline in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It definitely represents quite well the capabilities of a Jedi and delivers a feeling of being epic that many players have been missing quite a lot in other games of the Star Wars franchise.

Cal Kestis and his droid

According to Respawn, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is exactly what the video shows, a great story with platform and puzzle action that puts a heavy emphasis on melee combat.

“Players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities. Players will also use traversal and other platforming abilities to strategically overcome opponents and solve puzzles in their path across this galaxy-spanning adventure.”

We also learned a few interesting things about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during the conference. The game is to be played solo, exclusively, and that definitely helps to focus on the story. We will follow the growth of Cal Kestis as he becomes a full-fledged Jedi through the game. It’s not an open-world game, but as stated above, it features limited exploration and puzzles. Cal ship will serve as a hub as you travel to different planets and you will be able to save your game in certain checkpoints where you can also refill the healing capabilities of your droid.

Another thing that we discovered this weekend is the box art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, that was published on Respawn Entertainment Twitter account.

Developers have decided to deliver an epic story with what looks like very solid gameplay, and we should be grateful for it, as it will shed some light to one of the darkest periods in the Star Wars storyline. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will launch on November 15, 2019, on PC. PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
