EA reveals Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a Single Player Only game

Over the weekend, EA officially unveiled Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new game which is coming from Respawn Entertainment, the creators of Apex Legends and Titanfall, later this year. 

Unlike previous Star Wars games from EA, Jedi: Fallen Order will be a single player only title, lacking both microtransactions and loot boxes, which were contentious additions to EA's Star Wars Battlefront II.  

The game will be built using Unreal Engine 4 and follows a Jedi Padawan called Cal Kestis, who if voice acted by Cameron Monaghan. Fallen Order will be based after the fall of the Jedi in Star Wars: Episode III, taking place between episodes III and IV of the film series. 

Cal, like all surviving Jedi, is hiding from the emerging Galactic Empire; remaining out of sight while working as a salvager on a planet called Bracca alongside BD-1, his droid companion. By keeping his force sensitivity hidden and staying under the Empire's radar he can remain safe, but given the fact that this is a game, you can guess that things eventually go wrong. 

Respawn promises an in-depth combat system within Fallen Order, one which will demand that players learn how to use all of Cal's abilities to succeed. Purge Trooper have already been confirmed for the game, melee-focused troopers which are trained to hunt down surviving Jedi. 

Below is Respawn's first trailer for Jedi: Fallen Order, which is fully pre-rendered. A full gameplay reveal is expected at E3 2019. 

 

Jedi: Fallen Order has been built using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 4 and will release on November 15th 2019 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will likely be exclusive to EA's Origin platform on PC, like other games created by the publisher.

I hope this is a blinding success, just to set an example that when we have something without loot boxes or MT, we are willing to praise EA for a good product.Quote

I'm trying not to get hyped. My guess will be that if there are Microtransactions and not loot boxes we'll get 33% of a game with the remainder being DLC. EA have not suddenly had a change of heart here, theres still plenty of cash to be had from that cow just gotta change the label from Loot box to DLCQuote

Well I am trying to be positive. We are so quick to slam repeat offenders these days that we instantly think the worst every time. Ubisoft still provide products with MT but, imo they have drastically turned around their portfolio.
They had disaster after disaster with bugs and issues (AC Unity and the skeletal faces) but now we see more open betas, more testing and more success (AC Origin, Division 2, Anno xxxx).

Dragon Age Inquisition had a lengthy single player campaign and successful DLC which imo were valued purchases and not something I would expect in the main content Day 1 purchase.

If we get something along those lines, I will be happy.Quote

Agreed, though I don't think that we have had an EA release since then that hasn't had the microtransactions/ Lootboxes. This is also on Unreal engine so they got that overhead to pay where DAO was on the frostbite engine.
The way things have been in gaming the last 5 years have left me a bit cynical and I expect a very hazy line in the terms Microtransaction and DLC in a "No this pack of different coloured lightsabers are not microtransactions they are DLC" kinda wayQuote
