Respawn and Electronic Arts are finally showing off some details of the highly anticipated new Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
The newest entry into the sprawling and varied list of Star Wars games is set to be a return to the epic singleplayer experiences that fans have been pinning over for years now. And now, fans can get excited about some other news as well, namely that this game will not include any sort of microtransactions. So it looks like Fallen Order will avoid the trap that games like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey fell into with XP boosts and other nonsense. The new action adventure title will also make use of the impressive Unreal Engine 4, offering plenty of flexibility and some really impressive visuals on the final product. So graphics lovers will have plenty to gawk at with this game.
It’s hard to know what the game will look like, or how it will play, this early in the press cycle, EA did promise that we would see more impressive information, and possibly some gameplay, this month. So we’re probably getting a better picture later today when some of the team leads behind the project reveal some things about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order via a live panel.
As much was revealed by Blair Brown, the game’s producer, on Twitter this week:
So along with that good bit of news, Respawn is offering just the slightest bit of a teaser that may have revealed the release date as well. According to an alleged leak involving some promotional art, the new title could be slated for release this November. According to the source Tweet, some promotional art for the game features the date November 15th, leading to speculation that this is in fact the launch date for the game.
Respawn’s Vince Zampella and game director Stig Asmussen are set to host a panel on the game in just a few hours, so we could see a confirmation of this new leaked information then, who knows though.
