Respawn showed off Fallen Order's first trailer during the trailer, which introduces the game's story and its protagonist, Cal Kestis. Specifically, those dark times fallen between the first two Star Wars trilogies, following Order 66 when the Jedi were branded as traitors to the Republic. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities and master the art of the iconic lightsaber - all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors. Cal will also have a former Jedi Knight as his mentor and friend.
More recently, EA pulled the plug on another singleplayer Star Wars title that was in development at Visceral Games.
Following the release of the teaser of the movie Star Wars: Episode IX - Rise of Skywalker a day before, we finally have a trailer for the upcoming Star Wars game. After the issues with Star Wars Battlefront II, that was a welcome announcement to the crowd at the Celebration Stage.
He's hiding out there, but forced to go on the run after his Force powers are exposed. Cal has a droid buddy, who is described as his equal, named BD-1. Towards the end, we also get to see Cal lifting a lightsaber with a damaged hilt. EA hasn't shown off what these cosmetic upgrades will look like, so players will have to pre-order on faith for the time being. Brought to life by Respawn, a studio known for high-quality games that are both visually attractive and technically masterful, players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities. You can preorder the $60 standard edition and $70 deluxe edition now. The fact that EA is apparently acknowledging that these practices aren't viewed favourably, and using their absence as a selling point is a scenario that is causing much merriment on Twitter, mostly because it seems like a load of old bollocks.
