In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Order 66 survivor Padawan Cal Kestis strikes back. And based on a new look at the game, it’s going to be fantastic.
This weekend at E3 [EA Play 2019] during Microsoft’s press conference, a new trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order made its debut, showing some of the title’s kinetic action along with several character beats. The trailer reveals moments of intense fights, stunning visuals, and even a sense of humor.

Dan gave his top five highlights:
1. AT-AT climbing.
2. “I’m here on Jedi business.”
3. Saying hello to the wyyyshock spider.
4. BD-1 is the best.
5. “Hope is not lost.”

Jedi Fallen Order: Gameplay
StarWars.com’s Kristen Baver broke also down the game’s story and gameplay:
On the planet of Kashyyyk, you are now part of an important mission to help the Wookiee natives.
As Cal Kestis, the protagonist in the forthcoming console game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, players must be prepared to emerge from hiding and wield a lightsaber and the power of the Force to help the galaxy and potentially rebuild the fallen Jedi.
During an exclusive panel at EA Play earlier today, game makers from Respawn — Vince Zampella, head of Respawn, and Stig Asmussen, the game’s director — introduced the world to the first few minutes of real-time game-play of the former Jedi Padawan Cal on a mission to the familiar forest planet.
The gameplay trailer is below:
“Stig and his team have done an amazing job,” Zampella said after the extended peek at gameplay was played. The unedited footage featured Cal traversing the Kashyyyk level with his diminutive and faithful droid companion BD-1. Although uniquely suited to introduce fans to a new cast of characters in an era that’s gone largely unexplored in the past, creators said there will be some familiar places and faces, including guerrilla rebel Saw Gerrera voiced by Forest Whitaker reprising the role, as well as new planets to explore and never-before-seen characters to meet.

For my money, and let’s face it — EA and Lucasfilm will get my money — Saw Gerrera is the reason to pick this one up. I am VERY interested in learning more about his saga-spanning backstory. But what about you? Are you interested in playing? Let us know in the comments.
