At the EA Play press conference at E3 2018, Respawn founder Vince Zampella revealed that the studio is working on a new Star Wars game called Jedi: Fallen Order. The game will take place during the era between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, a time when the remaining Jedi in the galaxy are being hunted down by the Empire.
You play as Cal Kestis, a padawan who wasn’t able to complete his training before the Emperor initiated Order 66. During his adventures, Kestis will master the ways of the Force as well refine his skills with a lightsaber. But none of this will be easy, as he’ll be on the run from the Empire and the Second Sister, an Inquisitor hell-bent on hunting every last Jedi down.
The game is billed as a single-player action-adventure game. Stig Asmussen, former God of War III creative director, is leading development on Jedi: Fallen Order.
Asmussen wrote in an announcement on the official Respawn website that, “We promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times, a fact that will be constantly reinforced and honored as a central game design tenet. Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio’s dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics.”

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay
The game is single-player and story-focused. On display during this year’s EA Play was the game’s particular brand of Jedi action. Like the Jedi Knight and The Force Unleashed series before it, Jedi: Fallen Order features a mix of platforming, lightsaber dueling, and Force power physics, as Cal unleashes his Jedi training on unsuspecting stormtroopers. The trailers above showcase a bit of that gameplay.
