Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Gameplay Reveal Date Confirmed

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order gameplay reveal date is April 13

Highlights
  • The game is out during the holiday season of this year
  • A full reveal is expected on April 13
  • It won't be using Source or Frostbite

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is the next Star Wars game from EA. Slated for a holiday 2019 release date, EA teased the Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order reveal would take place during Star Wars Celebration Chicago. This would put the Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order gameplay reveal date as April 13. The company claims that you'll be able to "see the game for the first time" it's safe to say that we should get our first glimpse of Star War Jedi Fallen Order's gameplay at the very least if not story details and modes like multiplayer. Developed by Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends creator Respawn Entertainment, it takes place five years after the Revenge of the Sith, set between Episodes III and IV. Its protagonist is Cal, a padawan who survived Order 66. His mentor is a woman named Ceres as per past leaks.

That said, a handy list on popular gaming forum ResetEra has emerged, chronicling everything we know about the game so far.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order: everything we know so far

  • Third-person, action adventure
  • Single player
  • Being developed in Unreal Engine 4 instead of the modified Source Engine used in Apex and Titanfall
  • Stig Asmussen (Director of God of War 3) is leading the team as game director
  • Chris Avellone (KotOR2, Fallout 2, Fallout: New Vegas) did some story work, story/character reviews, and wrote cinematic scripts for the game
  • Jason de Heras is the Lead Combat Designer (Senior Combat Designer on God of War 3 and Ascension)
  • Canon to the Star Wars universe
  • Will be like "Force Unleashed without the Mountain Dew qualities"
  • Game has a "dark" tone and vibe to it
  • Narrative lead is Aaaron Contreras who was the lead narrative designer on Mafia 3 and narrative designer on Far Cry 3

That said, it would be interesting to see how monetisation would work in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order in the wake of Star Wars Battlefront 2's many issues. Given how well Respawn's last game, Titanfall 2 managed micro-transactions, it's safe to say it would be a cosmetic-only affair.
