New Jedi: Fallen Order trailer opens up with Padawan Cal Kestis crossing paths with Ninth Sister, an Inquisitor member trained by Darth Vader. She presents an imminent threat to him and attacks using her double-bladed red lightsaber.

Then Cal is shown to battle shock troopers, taking fire from AT-AT walkers, doing traversal using wires and some hyperspace jumping. More in-game footage shows previously revealed scenes with Second Sister presented in a new light.

Fallen Order takes place following a galaxy-wide Jedi purge initiated by "Order 66" during events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and few remaining survivors who ran from Galactic Empire were being hunted down.

After years of hiding in shadows, Cal was ousted to Empire when he is caught saving his friend using the Force and became a target for Second Sister. He found a new ally in Cere Junda, who becomes a mentor figure to him and guides him through.

Despite many players are still hesitant to trust EA because of their past attempt to include loot boxes and pay-to-win mechanics in Star Wars Battlefront II back in 2017, Respawn has worked really hard to deliver a great Star Wars game for fans.

Electronic Arts can finally win over fans with release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order next month as it has every potential to become a great single-player experience that players has been asking for years, minus any shoddy micro-transactions.

Padawan Cal Kestis sets out for a galactic adventure in story preview trailer of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

We are only months away from developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts to release their upcoming action-adventure Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on November 15, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In opening scene, Jedi hero Cal Kestis is seen to have his butt kicked by an Inquisitor known as Second Sister, apprentice of Darth Vader.Then help came in form of a woman who starts firing her blaster at his enemy so Cal can get up and run.

The woman, named Cere Junda would become a mentor figure to Cal and was a padawan once. His rescuers would become allies since they both are hunted by Imperial enemies and working towards a common goal of taking down the Empire.

Apparently, he is looking for something ancient, which is very precious to Empire as well. Cal bands together with his newfound friends along with BD-1 buddy droid and travel to places to continue his journey of restoring Jedi Order.

Fallen Order is a single-player experience featuring actor Cameron Monaghan (Gotham, Shameless) in lead role. It took place five years after execution of "Order 66" took place during Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

Following Star Wars Battlefront II micro-transaction outrage, fans have given up on EA to do justice to any Star Wars game due to their focus on multiplayer components instead of a solid story-focused campaign mode with new characters.

Despite some skepticism, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has managed to draw attention from fans due to developer studio like Respawn being involved, who has a solid reputation for working on games like Apex Legends and Titanfall.

Jedi: Fallen Order is Very Similar to Sekiro

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order combat system is "very similar" to From Software's latest title Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

After much anticipation, fans got their long-awaited reveal of single-player action-adventure game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts at E3 2019, which is set within Star Wars franchise.

Also, a 26-minute long gameplay walkthrough was presented to audience that involves using The Force and lightsaber. Respawn recently confirms to have drawn inspiration for its combat mechanics from Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Although gameplay demo shown at E3 only gives an idea of how things will play out but not much on how things would feel. Then upon reveal of an extended clip, people started comparing it to From Software's latest release.

Then in a recent interview with Edge Magazine, lead combat designer Jason De Heras stated what Respawn is designing for Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay is very similar to what Sekiro allowed players to do, which was inspiring.

RELATED: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Demo

About combat flow in the game, De Heras had the following to say about Fallen Order in his lengthy interview.

They let you attack, they let you roll, they do all this for free – and then the AI will tell you if you’re doing the correct thing. It just confirmed to us that you don’t have to limit everything the player does; let them have a little more agency, and then let the AI give them a slap on the wrist or a punch in the face. It was a positive thing for us to know there was a game that was similar to ours. Very similar.

RELATED: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Extended Gameplay Demo

Sekiro is known for its punishing difficulty so much so than typical From Software games; it eventually sparked debate among critics, developers and players about whether or not it is keeping people from entirely enjoying the game.

However, it turns out to be less difficult than previous titles by same developer and gotten rid of stamina bar from Dark Souls series, which actually used to put a limit to how many actions player could perform before they need to take a break.

RELATED: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Teaser Poster Leaked

From Software made it so that players could block and slash as much as they want in Sekiro or traverse relentlessly using grappling hook device without ever having to worry about a stamina gauge that would ran out and slow them down.

There are many games out there that tried and mostly failed at mimicking what developers have accomplished with Dark Souls series. Respawn is not looking to copy anything in particular but to take lessons and improvise on it.

To make players feel powerful enough when wielding a lightsaber as Jedi Cal Kestis but still make things challenging for him, developers decided to add fodder enemies that will go down in a single hit, like blaster carrying basic Stormtroopers.

Then there are some baddies who can outright block your strikes and fight back pretty well, notably the Purge Troopers we have seen in demo. They will scale up in-game difficulty of facing enemies and will do better than regular troopers.

RELATED: Origin Access Adds 12 EA Star Wars Games

De Heras continues saying, every enemy that you come across in Fallen Order that are capable of blocking has a guard meter, which is similar to Sekiro's guard system and once you manage to break it, you are in for an instant kill with a single hit.

Game director Stig Asmussen of Jedi: Fallen Order has also expressed his appreciation for From Software games even before from the days of making Demon's Souls and especially noting of his all-time personal favorite King's Field II.

Here is a key-part of Jason De Heras talking about Fallen Order combat system with Game Informer.

Despite drawing inspiration from and being "very similar" to Sekiro for having almost same-styled posture system, Fallen Order would not likely to be as tough as the former and even casual players will probably be able to have a good time.

Respawn Entertainment is eyeing towards releasing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order later this year during holiday season and is currently scheduled to launch on November 15, 2019 worldwide for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Extended Gameplay Demo

Respawn reveals an extended version of E3 2019 gameplay demo video for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Though first gameplay footage for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been revealed earlier at E3 2019 event, developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts actually showed an extended cut to press behind closed doors.

Now that E3 press conference is finally wrapped up, Respawn decides to showcase that lengthy segment of Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay walkthrough to public with a 26-minute long video to offer a more in-depth look at challenges and combat system.

Ride along with lone Jedi Cal Kestis in this newly released Fallen Order gameplay video in his war against Galactic Empire.




RELATED: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Revealed

Instead of starting his journey by meeting with rebel extremist Saw Gerrera (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), we see protagonist Cal Kestis emerging from a swamp-like location of Kashyyyk after his buddy droid BD-1 sweeps their surrounding for trouble.

He manages to climb his way up on top of an AT-AT walker and after its Stormtrooper guard is blown out, he gets into the combat vehicle. Inside he peeps on a few guards that he dispatched shortly using The Force and his lightsaber.

He sneaks into main cockpit and took control after knocking the pilots unconscious and then we see some vehicle combat mechanics in action. Cal then blasts off another AT-AT by surprise and rain on heavy fire on nearby Imperial establishment.

He eventually met Saw Gerrera after his vehicle crashes and a cut-scene starts where they exchange about why they are on Kashyyyk. Cal came looking for Wookiee general Tarfful and Saw is here to disrupt supply runs of The Empire.

Soon, his mentor Cere Junda and companion Greez Dritus joins them but Saw is skeptical about his claim of being a Jedi. However, they proceed on how to rescue a group of slave Wookiees from that Imperial refinery and campaign is resumed.

Looking for a power source, he came across a giant spider-like creature and a couple of Flame Beetles that was been dealt with. It was from here when we step into E3 2019 demo footage and rest of it just continues as shown earlier.

Considering everything they revealed so far are from alpha stage of development, Fallen Order looks impressive and perhaps one of the best in prospect of other Star Wars games EA made so far upon acquiring franchise license from Disney.

Of course any fans can't help but notice some close similarities gameplay drawn from games like Shadow of the Colossus and Uncharted at times but all are hoping that it somehow works and not become another generic title for cheap cash grab.

Set in Star Wars universe, Jedi: Fallen Order takes place following events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, right after executing "Order 66" to purge Jedi order and features actor Cameron Monaghan (Gotham, Shameless) in role of  Cal Kestis.

Upcoming single-player action-adventure game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is one of the most-anticipated games this year for fans, which is currently scheduled to arrive on November 15, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platform.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Demo

EA and Respawn shows off first official gameplay demo video of upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Kicking off their presence in E3 2019, developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts dropped a much anticipated gameplay trailer for upcoming Star Wars action-adventure game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

People were concerned about its gameplay ever since the game was officially revealed months ago. Showcased today during EA Play live-stream, Fallen Order is heading towards PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms on November 15, 2019.

In his quest to become a Jedi, Cal Kestis reaches on Wookiee planet Kashyyyk with his Buddy Droid-1 to meet with rebel extremist Saw Gerrera (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and takes on a mission to rescue a group of Wookiees.

Set in third-person perspective, he immediately is on his way by Force-pull a metal door and engages Imperial Stormtroopers nearby with his lightsaber. Cal can perform double-jump, use Force to push or pull enemies and objects to his will.

RELATED: Baldur's Gate 3 Announced

He pulled a Stormtrooper from his position to impale with lightsaber and then threw it like a projectile that came bouncing back like a boomerang. Cal even came across what seems as an Inquisitor, who probably served as a sub-boss character.

Apparently, lightsabers are used for couple of tricks and they are used more efficiently for melee combat. Players can unlock newer abilities through an experience system and skill tree aside from often being assisted by companion droid BD-1.

Fallen Order takes place during a dark period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, where any surviving Jedi were being hunt down and being killed by forces of Empire but Padawan Cal Kestis managed to escape their grasp.

EA shows off gameplay footage of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from alpha stage of development and it clearly means that there are rooms for changes and improvements, which they would be wise to make according to fan feedback.

Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Will Be Revealed at EA Play and E3

Respawn will reveal gameplay video of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at EA Play and E3 2019 on next month.

After making its most anticipating reveal back at Star Wars Celebration 2019, developer Respawn Entertainment announced upcoming single-player Star Wars action-adventure game Jedi: Fallen Order will be out on November 15, 2019.

Although fan-response towards Fallen Order was quite positive in general, no gameplay footage has been shown in the reveal trailer and CEO Vince Zampella recently announced to showcase more of the game at EA Play and E3 2019.

Despite publisher Electronic Arts telling everyone that they would not feature any loot boxes or micro-transactions and entire game will be focused on a single player campaign, people simply can't take their word at face value given their past records.

Since publisher EA has horribly failed to meet expectation with Star Wars Battlefront II and then cancelled development for Star Wars game titled "Project Ragtag" in past, all are anticipating for Jedi: Fallen Order with high hopes.

By next month, eager fans and players would all have their much expected exclusive first-look at some actual gameplay to get hyped for and Respawn has confirmed showing up at two events then in a post on Twitter.

EA Play event usually kicks-off with video presentation and just before E3 each year but EA has decided to do things a bit differently in 2019 and getting rid of their presentation part to replace it with live-stream showcase from June 7-9.

Set right after the tragic events of Order 66 that purged almost every Jedi member throughout the galaxy except lone Padawan Cal Kestis, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be launched in late 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Origin Access Adds 12 EA Star Wars Games

Since fans were not quite happy with how EA was rolling out Star Wars games in recent year, at least it was a slightly wise move to let people have a chance to go back to glory days for having fun with classic titles that defined the series.

Pretty much every old-school fans with Origin Access would love to indulge themselves with original Battlefront II, Jedi Academy and Republic Commando. If not, there are still more than 100 titles for members to try out and keep them busy for a while.

After their disastrous run with Star Wars Battlefront II in 2017 and cancelled game "Project Ragtag" under Visceral Games that was under development, EA has lost their credibility of producing decent Star Wars titles to fans.

Upon revealing of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at Star Wars Celebration last month, many are willing to give them one last chance. An official gameplay showcase for Fallen Order is announced to be taken place at EA Play and E3 2019 next month.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Revealed

Trust only in the Force because Respawn Entertainment and EA have officially revealed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Even though we all got an early look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order teaser poster via a leak on Amazon listing, no one is any bit of less hyped about what developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts would have unveiled today.

Aside from an anticipated wait for title reveal of Star Wars: Episode IX movie from sequel trilogy, Fallen Order remains to be one of the most anticipated parts of Star Wars Celebration 2019 and a teaser is finally revealed via a Twitch live-stream.

Witness how Cal Kestis adapts into a galaxy dominated by Galactic Empire on the first official reveal trailer of Jedi: Fallen Order.

Chronicling an aftermath of tragic Jedi purge throughout the galaxy, a lone Padawan makes it out and tries his best to blend within society and he is trying to survive by abiding to certain rules while surrounded by enemies everywhere.

He somehow finds something similar to a ship behind a hidden bunker like place; most probably by climbing on to the cliff side he was scaling previously seen in leaked teaser poster and it probably has some message for him or any survivors.

Keeping a low profile, Cal socializes and avoids detection from scouting Stormtroopers but life eventually brings him to a situation where he had to choose between saving a life by using the Force and blow up his cover or letting someone he know, die.

Inadvertently, he crosses paths with Second Sister Inquisitor and tried to run unsuccessfully as we see him being chased down Imperial army. Although help came along as some rebel force and he picks up a broken lightsaber seen from first teaser image.

So far, Fallen Order looks pretty impressive but we still have to look at some gameplay footage as we simply cannot trust EA after Battlefront II. Though ahead of reveal, EA did confirm that there would be no micro-transactions in their upcoming Star Wars game.

Respawn has already proven their worth to video gamers by delivering massively popular game series like Apex Legends and Titanfall, which is the only reason players have been waiting to see this single-player story come to life.

Another Tweeter user Nibel has posted out an image earlier before official announcement that stated the game will become available on November 15 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which eventually turned out to be true.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order casts actor Cameron Monaghan (Gotham, Shameless) to portray Cal Kestis in a post-Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith period where Empire Palpatine has wiped off most of Jedi members by executing "Order 66".
