After the cancellation of Star Wars 1313, it seemed all hope was lost in getting a single player game set in the Star Wars universe. Enter Respawnâ€™s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. EA has revealed 15-minutes of gameplay (approximately 3-hours into the campaign) at EA Play to give us a look into the Star Wars Universe after Order 66.
The gameplay segments span various locations and gives a taste at how free-flowing you can be with the lightsaber combat. It feels like a mix of The Force Unleashed with the storytelling and locomotion bits of the Uncharted franchise. Some well-known characters and droids make an appearance in the 15-minute segment. Thereâ€™s no doubt that the game has the feel of Star Wars, but my only concern lies in how easy it looks. If the difficulty is there, and Iâ€™m not saying it has to be FromSoftware difficult, but there has to be a challenge to encourage lightsaber creativity.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to release Nov. 15, 2019 on PS4, XBOX One and PC.
