Star Wars Celebration Chicago: Jedi: Fallen Order looks dynamite

Star Wars Celebration Chicago: Jedi: Fallen Order looks dynamite

Respawn Entertainment Co-Founder Vince Zampella says that there will be no microtransactions or multiplayer in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. After the issues with Star Wars Battlefront II, that was a welcome announcement to the crowd at the Celebration Stage.

Abrams said writers met with Star Wars creator George Lucas before they started to script the final chapter in one of the world's most-celebrated movie franchises.

Again this information hasn't been verified though it sounds like an exciting, if predictable, approach to unearthing this lost chapter in the Star Wars saga. Cal must learn to survive while hiding his Jedi identity from Imperial soldiers looking to hunt down any survivors. The character appeared to die in 1983's Return of the Jedi.

Actor Cameron Monaghan is playing Cal, and he spoke about how much he's been a fan of Star Wars since childhood.


The footage reveal came as part of the Jedi: Fallen Order panel on Saturday, April 13, when the studios also announced a release date for and several details about the game.

A pair of Purge Troopers and the Second Sister. "Within this narrative, we've crafted a game with intense, yet thoughtful and fun melee combat using the lightsaber and Force powers, allowing anyone to fulfill their Jedi fantasy", he said. The game also features a new flavor of Stormtroopers dubbed Purgetroopers, who look as menacing as their name suggests thanks to their imposing black armor and heavy weapons.

What we know for sure is that Fallen Order will be a singleplayer experience, Respawn having previous confirmed this. Rian Johnson, who wrote and directed The Last Jedi, chose to go this route after JJ Abrams set up the mystery surrounding Rey's parents in The Force Awakens. And I think it's more effective to have people who have more of a history with Han Solo witness his dead, and be unable to stop it - his wife, the mother of his child, his best friend - instead of two characters who have known him what, 20 minutes? It is assumed that this will be an adventure game from a team led by Stig Asmussen (Stig Asmussen), the former game director of God of War 3 at Sony Santa Monica.
