Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the newest game inspired by the legendary film franchise, and it’s taking the lore in a bold and unexplored direction. The video game portion of the Star Wars story hasn’t really ventured into much territory after the fall of the Galactic Republic. The rise of the Galactic Empire was a tumultuous time not only for the Jedi, who had fallen victim to the machinations of the dark side and the fallout from the Palpatine’s Order 66, but for the galaxy as a whole. This period of strife is defined by the Galactic Civil War and the attempts by the Emperor to hunt down the remnants of the Jedi.
The game follows the journey of a young Jedi, Cal as he attempts to use his skills to undermine the Empire. There is not really a ton that we know about Cal though, as he’s a new character within the canon. Being a Jedi though, he will have a lot of enemies to deal with. The Imperial Inquisition, using dangerous hunters like the Purge Trooper, will be hounding Cal throughout the game. And that’s without even mentioning the thousands of environmental hazards that dot the vast expanse of the galaxy.
It’s not known how far across the galactic plane Cal’s journey will take him, but given the breadth of material in the Star Wars canon, there’s a lot of stuff to dig into. And judging from the newest trailer released for the game, there’s some new and old stuff being pushed in this new video game.
Check it out in the trailer down below. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is due to bring Star Wars back into your life once again when it launches on November 15th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
