Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's 'Thoughtful' Lightsaber Combat Unveiled

Watch the EA Play E3 2019 press conference live stream right here

Jedi: Fallen Order is developed by Respawn Entertainment, the people behind the well-received Apex: Legends. Shishido recounts numerous iterations that didn't feel right for the game - including a single-eyed droid that nearly made the cut, but fit one of Disney's other properties better than the Star Wars universe.

The single-play Star Wars adventure centers on Cal Kestis, which managed to escape Order 66 (as portrayed in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith) and is now on the run from The Empire's Second Sister and a band of Purge Troopers. Fallen Order has plenty of Jedi action - like Force pushing a hapless R2 droid into a Stormtrooper for an explosive start to a fight. The gameplay took place about three hours into the game on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. Apparently, Cal is aligned with Saw and his Partisans. "We wanted him to be able to run around, and jump on Cal's shoulders". In one encounter, Cal pulls a trooper who had been firing at him forward, and then pushes him back, into the trooper's own blaster bolt. Luckily, Shishido promises: "BD-1 will always be with you". The game releases in just a few short months, so fans don't have too much longer to wait, but only time will tell if it lives up to the Star Wars audience's massive expectations.
