Jedi: Fallen Order will take players to many exotic planets like the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyk.

The game is being made by Apex Legends and Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment and offers players a third-person, single player, story-driven Star Wars game set in a post Episode III world.


The gameplay demo provided 15 minutes of uncut footage, showing off Uncharted-esque wall-climbing across Kashyyyk coupled with lightsaber-tinged combat. You play as Cal Kestis, a Jedi on the run, who takes on the Empire with the aid of his Force powers and some unexpected allies. What's most notable is how you need to vary your tactics for different enemy types, akin to God of War, and you can even use foes against each other e.g. force dragging a trooper toward you, then shooting him toward an incoming spider like a projectile - there seems little sign of combat getting repetitive. "And it was like, well, we got to have the Star Wars wipe, like, you gotta have it". We play some tiresome lad who looks like a photofit of a minor member of the English royal family, which I suppose is to be expected, but our Jedi-in-training also has a diddy droid pal who rides on his back and has wobbly chicken legs and a View-Master for a head and makes good beeps. Jedi Fallen Order releases on November 15 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Early in the footage, we got to see one of Rogue One's major characters, Saw Gererra, who was played by Forest Whitaker, seemingly reprise his role in Jedi Fallen Order. Ian Higton has noticed 11 things in the new Fallen Order gameplay reveal and he's chose to Force Share them with you. Players will need to approach enemies strategically, sizing up strengths and weaknesses while cleverly utilizing your Jedi training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path. As part of this authentic Star Wars story, fans will delve into a galaxy recently seized by the Empire. "Discover the Jedi abilities you must master to survive". Cal dispatches a rooftop guard with his force push ability, and jumps inside the AT-AT. In the dark half, the villainous, Jedi-hunting Second Sister holds her double-bladed lightsaber, leading the red-visor-sporting purge troopers, while AT-STs stalk below. You don't just mash through foes like potatoes, but have to use parrying, evasion and force powers to wear them down.
