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.

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".

EA Cancelled BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic Sequel

BioWare has repeatedly tried to revive Knights of the Old Republic series and failed to do so because of EA.

Based on the mythos of Star Wars fantasy universe, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was a joint effort of making a role-playing game by developer BioWare and publisher Lucas Arts back in 2003 that many fans cherishes till date.

This critically acclaimed title received a sequel next year from Obsidian Entertainment and multiple attempts from the original developer to bring a third game was unsuccessful because apparently, Electronic Arts will not allow that to happen anytime soon.

Of course, KOTOR didn't have high quality graphics like any of the modern day titles nor had exquisite multiplayer features, the RPG offered people to make plot decisions. Most importantly, it was free from the corporate greed that players know as micro-transactions.

The game took place 4,000 years before the formation of Galactic Empire where you, as a Jedi would venture through galaxy to defeat an assembled Sith army of Darth Malak while also choosing an alignment with light or dark side of the Force.

Both of these titles were not part of Star Wars canon anymore when Disney took over the franchise but later, Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels animated series made the lore relevant again by making reference of events taking place during KOTOR.

BioWare later released an MMORPG titled Star Wars: The Old Republic in 2011 to continue the series and fans have heard about a lot of rumor from 2017 of rebooting the series but all of them were eventually shot down with no hopes for revival.

In response to a fan hoping for a reboot or sequel, renowned video game journalist Jason Schreier revealed the true scenario in a Tweet.



RELATED: Star Wars Battlefront II Micro-Transactions Outrage

Although EA has exclusive rights to publish Star Wars games after they made a deal with Disney, all they did for the last few years is cancelled more games than they released. In their latest venture, they managed to heavily enrage the fans with Star Wars Battlefront II loot box controversy.

When they recently cancelled an open-world game code-named "Ragtag" being developed under Visceral Games, Rogue One co-writer Gary Whitta simply states that Disney should pull the plug on their Star Wars license deal with EA and be done with it.

RELATED: Rogue One Writer Wants Disney to Replace EA for Star Wars Games

According to Schreier, EA has shot down multiple attempts from the developers of Knights of the Old Republic to revive the series aside from canning several other Star Wars projects from some of their acquired studios to rush other games.

With their current development philosophy and games-as-service approach, EA is burning cash and shoving beloved game franchises to drain for no good reason. Seeing their recent behavior, we have good reasons to believe that they have been corrupted by the Dark Side.

Rogue One Writer Wants Disney to Replace EA for Star Wars Games

Co-writer of Rogue One, Gary Whitta believes Disney should pull the plug on their Star Wars license deal with Electronic Arts.

Fans of Star Wars franchise doesn't take any mishandling to their beloved franchise kindly and the way video game publisher Electronic Arts has been treating the licensed properties they received rights to from Disney are absolutely infuriating for anyone who loves them.

Avid video game fan and screenwriter Gary Whitta (After Earth, The Book of Eli), who is widely known for his involvement in story development for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story joins host Greg Miller in the daily podcast of Kinda Funny Games to talk about that.

Following Disney and EA making a decade-long deal that gave the latter exclusive rights to publish Star Wars games, fans have had a lot of expectation for the upcoming years to get some super exciting titles set in the fictional universe created by George Lucas.

The studio even acquired Battlefield series creator DICE, Titanfall development studio Respawn Entertainment and even Visceral Games who were responsible for the Dead Space trilogy but what they have done so far is not looking very good.

RELATED: Reddit Bashed EA Over Battlefront II Loot Boxes

We are in 2019 and by now, all we have so far is just two installments out of their Star Wars Battlefront series. What we should also take to account is that their greedy approach to include loot boxes within the game has caused major backlash for Star Wars Battlefront II.

In their next insane move, EA went ahead and cancelled an ongoing project code-named "Ragtag" by Visceral, an open-world game from the known franchise. Seeing all these catastrophic action, we have a bad feeling about the fate of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Like any other rational fans of Star Wars, Gary Whitta thinks this is embarrassing and Disney should pull the plug on their deal to take away their license from EA if there is any way for them even though they are only half-way through.

Although he has faith on the upcoming third-person Star Wars game that Respawn has been working on, he really cannot rely on their decision making process after seeing them cancelling project Ragtag that was essentially a "Star Wars Uncharted" game.

For those who are interested in checking out the full video where Gary Whitta expresses his passion for games and Star Wars, the entire conversation is right below.

Of course Whitta doesn't voice his concern about the situation from a position of power, neither does he takes business decisions for them but his obvious frustration over their repeated failure is something that the fans can clearly relate to.

As a media giant, Disney should care for the franchise by cutting all ties to the publisher and explore other options for the sake of their own reputation. Obviously, there are many other established and indie studios capable of doing justice to Star Wars.
