After all of yesterday’s excitement about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, today has brought another big trailer reveal from Star Wars Celebration as EA has officially unveiled Respawn Entertainment’s long-gestating video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Taking place after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, the game will put players into the shoes of Cal Kestis (portrayed by Gotham star Cameron Monaghan), a Jedi Padawan who survived the initial slaughter of Order 66 and now finds himself pursued by the Empire and the Inquisitors.
Here’s the official description, followed by the reveal trailer…
Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand-new Star Wars planet and one of several new locations introduced in the game. Cal is hiding from the Empire in plain sight but is forced to go on the run when he exposes his Force powers. Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, as well as run into some familiar faces, all while being accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1. Cal’s flight from the Empire is made even more dangerous as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi. Assisting the Second Sister are the terrifying Purge Troopers, special Imperial forces trained to seek out Jedi and aid the Inquisitors in their dastardly work.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set for release on November 15th 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
