Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's 'Thoughtful' Lightsaber Combat Unveiled

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's 'Thoughtful' Lightsaber Combat Unveiled

But in the end, there'll be proper screen wipes in Jedi: Fallen Order.

Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment debuted 14 minutes of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay at EA Play 2019 in Hollywood. Cal's Force powers were also revealed, showing how the young Jedi takes on the Stormtroopers following the rise of the Sith prior to the events of A New Hope. Alongside his droid companion, BD-1, who acts as the game's HUD, the two will hop from planet to planet to hopefully restore order to the galaxy. The game takes place after the fall of the Jedi Order, putting players in the shoes of Cal Kestis, one of the Order's last surviving Padawans. A deliberate, precise Star Wars action game sounds like a victor to us. We don't know exactly how many abilities you'll unlock, but the upgrade path stretched outward as far as we could see.

In terms of other monetization or game modes, EA has promised that Fallen Order won't feature a multiplayer component or any form of microtransactions - good news for those who have become disillusioned with the company's post-Battlefront II business practices.

It seems like a versatile approach to combat is given to the player.

Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear and enemies while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars.

One of the biggest technical challenges Respawn faced when creating Jedi: Fallen Order was not, apparently, rendering its star's head of well-conditioned hair.

Combat seemed to center around the idea of trying to make a Jedi's abilities practical. Explore and overcome a wide range of challenges focused on combat, exploration and puzzle-solving.

One of the most notable force abilities used in the demo was the ability to manipulate time, and damn.
