When is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order released?
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released on 15th November, 2019. The game will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox. You can already pre-order it on the EA website as well as Amazon. There’s also a Deluxe Edition which includes a director’s cut suite with behind-the-scenes features.
The story picks up after Episode III. The official summary reads: “From Respawn comes a brand-new action-adventure game which tells an original Star Wars story around a surviving Padawan set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith.”
The main character is Cal Kestis who survived when the Emperor activated Order 66 ordering Stormtroopers to kill all Jedi. Cal has been hiding since then – between the Episode III and Episode IV films. The idea is for Cal to find new allies during the game.
The trailer teases Saw’s role, lightsaber fights, and a few other characters as well as the ‘thoughtful combat’ style, which basically means you have to size up opponents and made decisions as to what’s the best way to beat them.
