Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order features "cinematic" and immersive combat

16 April 2019

EA revealed the game's trailer during Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, alongside a panel with Respawn founder Vince Zampella. A slip of the tongue from General Grievous voice actor and Skywalker Sound editor Matthew Wood, along with sources for Eurogamer, indicate that a new game is indeed in development.

Disney also released new images featuring Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef, a new pic of Pedro Pascal and the official logo.

The Mandalorian is written and executive produced by Jon Favreau, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode and serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Admitting her view on why EA changed its stance on single-player only games is speculation, she said "I don't know why the change of heart happened, because that was very clearly not an acceptable plan when we were working on Ragtag!". While no gameplay has been shown, we know the third-person action will include intense lightsaber battles, melee and Force abilities, platforming, and puzzle-solving. "They're working very closely with Rian". We're looking at: "What is the next decade of storytelling?"

Johnson helmed The Last Jedi, in 2017, and he was quickly signed to develop a new trilogy.

"As they finish Game of Thrones, they're going to segue into Star Wars", Kennedy said.

More details will certainly be revealed as the release date draws closer, but in the meantime, you can catch up on all the confirmed details about Jedi Fallen Order with our guide. Johnson, Benioff and Weiss are all great storytellers who have a tremendous passion for the fantasy genre and Star Wars in particular. "I had to take what I'd figured out [for Uncharted] in terms of deconstructing pulp adventure, and say alright, Star Wars is also in that category, but it has certain things that are distinct, or at least distinct from our core inspiration which was of course Indiana Jones". "We're looking at whether we can move massively in one direction of the other". She would add, "I think this is a huge opportunity to step into the galaxy in a little bit different part of the timeline". Do you think this is a good strategy to map out the saga instead of ruing what appears to be a patched together trilogy?
