By Jonathon Dornbush
After some teasing, EA and Respawn Entertainment finally unveiled the first details about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, including the release date and platforms that players can expect.
EA has awarded Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order a release date of November 15, 2019, which will be released on Xbox One, PS4 and PC via EA Origin. As Respawn, the studio behind Titanfall and Apex Legends, and EA announced in the hours leading up to the panel, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player game that contains no multiplayer elements or microtransactions.
Watch the full trailer of the story of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order below.
The Jedi Story: Fallen Order is part of the Star Wars canon timeline shortly after Star Wars: Sith Revenge. EA had previously revealed that the story would focus on a young Padawan, but Respawn today confirmed that this character is Cal Kestis, who will be performed by Shameless and Cameron Monaghan of Gotham. Here's all we learned about the game with the Star Wars Celebration 2019 panel.
Star Wars Jedi: Falling Orders History
Cal survived Order 66, the emperor's decree to eliminate the Jedi. According to EA and Respawn, "Players must recover fragments of Cal's broken past to complete his training and master the iconic lightsaber art – while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly inquisitors."
Jedi: Fallen Order will feature new venues in the Star Wars universe, including Bracca, where Cal's story begins. Respawn confirmed that Jedi: Fallen Oder will also feature iconic Star Wars venues, in addition to his equipment, weapons and enemies.

He hides but is forced to run after his Force powers are exposed. A trailer of the story, visible above, shows a little about Cal's journey, his efforts to stay quiet and what happens when his powers are discovered. The trailer also confirmed that Cal would, at some point, have a blue lightsaber.
The rest of the description of the official Jedi story: Fallen Order, officially released by EA, reads as follows:
"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 vile work, help the second sister. "
