Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order revealed - watch 14 minutes of gameplay right nowPlatforms: Microsoft Xbox One | Sony PlayStation 4 | PC
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order saw a full reveal at EA Play during E3 2019, with developer Respawn showing off 14 minutes of thrilling gameplay.
The gameplay reveal showed off protagonist Cal Kestis engaging in plenty of force and lightsaber combat. Lightsaber combat is clearly inspired by FromSoftware's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Dark Souls and Bloodbourne titles, with combat more considered and "thoughtful". Dodging is a major part of the game, with enemies seemingly not simply being cannon fodder to mow down.
Force powers came into play frequently during the demo, being used to open doors, clear paths, and affect Cal's combat strategy. In combat, players can transition into a slow-motion state, so, for example, the demo showed a Stormtrooper shooting at Cal, he then slowed time, force pulled the Stormtrooper towards him, then moved the enemy into their own laser shot. It's very cool.
Traversal is also clearly a big focus, a lot of the gameplay was very Uncharted-esque. The wall-running clip from the first trailer in April was not just for cinematic purposes, today's demo confirmed that wall-running (a Respawn speciality) will feature heavily in Fallen Order.
Following the reveal, Respawn confirmed that the game is canon and Cal Kestis would in fact be returning in "other places". With that in mind, it's worth mentioning that Rogue One characters, K-2SO and Saw Gerrera are heavily involved in the game's narrative. The developers also confirmed that there would be system that allows you to become more 'dark-side' or more 'light-side'.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15th.
