Jedi: Fallen Order Impressions
Today, EA Play rolled out footage of some of their upcoming releases including the highly anticipated ‘Star Wars JEDI : Fallen Order’ which, based upon the few minutes of footage I had the good fortune to see, is going to be well worth the wait.
Set for a November 15th release date, ‘Star Wars JEDI:Fallen Order’ is a single-player third-person action adventure game being developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts. The game will be available for PlayStation 4, XBOX One, and Microsoft Windows.
Directed by Stig Asmussen (known for his work on the God Of War series), ‘Fallen Order’ is set to take place after Order 66, leading to the slaughter of Jedi throughout the galaxy and the events following Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith. The player will assume the identity of Padawan Cal Kestis (voiced by Cameron Monaghan). One of the few remaining Jedi on the run and fighting to survive while on the run from the Galactic Empire.
Judging from the several minutes of footage I had the good fortune to view, its clear that they took full advantage of the Unreal Engine 4 with the creation of the game. The visuals were absolutely brilliant and the movement was clear and slick. The segment they presented at EA Play showed Cal Kestis on a Wookie planet attempting to free some of the imprisoned Wookies from an Empire stronghold which is robbing the world of every natural resource they can get their hands on.
It’s safe to say that the 2019 holiday will clearly belong to Star Wars fans this year with ‘Fallen Order’ in November and the Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker the following month so if I was a Star Wars fan, I’d buckle up and prepare for one heck of an adventure .
