With Respawn always on the continued success of Apex LegendsToday, the developer has finally unveiled its long-awaited Star wars game with a number of details and the first appropriate trailer. Star Wars: Fallen Order will be released on November 15 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
The game takes place after the events of The revenge of the Sith when the universe is largely devoid of Jedi and the developer says the game will be "one player, one story-based title" with a strong focus on lightsaber combat and Force abilities . The game will feature a young Padawan named Cal Kestis who managed to escape the Jedi Slaughter and tries to stay alive while completing his training.

Here is the basic configuration:
Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand new Star wars Planet and one of the many new locations introduced into the game. Cal is hiding from the Empire in plain sight of all but is forced to run away when he exposes his powers to the Force. Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, and meet familiar faces, while being accompanied by his trusty BD-1 droid. Cal's escape from the Empire is made even more dangerous by the second sister, one of the elite inquisitors of the Empire, who seeks to chase Cal and extinguish this surviving Jedi. The terrible soldiers of the Purge, imperial special forces trained to search for the Jedi and help the inquisitors in their heinous work, help the second sister.
Given the bumpy course of Star wars end games – which includes several canceled games and the many struggles of the Battlefront series – anticipation for the new game is high. Much of this is up to the developer. Respawn stands out from the hit of the surprise royal battle Apex Legendswho managed to hold strong against Fortnite with the excellent Titanfall 2, which featured one of the best first-person shooter campaigns in recent years. Fallen Order is also barred by God of War III director Stig Asmussen.
"A lot Star wars The fans, including ourselves, are really interested in the dark times, so we wanted to explore this mysterious and dangerous time, "Asmussen said in a statement. "Lucasfilm's team has been great collaborators, allowing us to explore and further develop that part of the timeline where the empire is at the height of its power and where all the remaining Jedi are hiding. In this story, we have created an intense, thoughtful and fun melee combat game that uses the lightsaber and the powers of the Force, allowing everyone to realize their Jedi fantasy. "
The developer says that Fallen Order was designed for "gameplay as a top priority" and "players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force capabilities". Given Respawn's fame for action games, that sounds great.
It's a long time coming for the good revelation of Order fallen. We first learned that Respawn was exploring Star wars in 2016, and we did not even learn the title of the game until last year. The wait will be over relatively soon, though.
