New game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will let you play a Jedi

Titanfall developer Respawn’s Vince Zampella gave us a small teaser during today’s EA conference at E3, and while there aren’t many details yet, what we know so far sounds juicy. Yes, there’s a new Star Wars game dropping holiday 2019 called Jedi: Fallen Order, and it’s being made by the people behind one of the best shooters of this generation, Titanfall 2.

According to the game’s website, Jedi: Fallen Order will take place during the period shortly after Revenge of the Sith, following a “surviving Padawan” during the dark times of the franchise when the Jedi are being hunted down. Zampella said on Twitter that it’ll be a single-player story game that’s dark and gritty.

That’s not much to got on, as Respawn didn’t release a trailer, key art, or anything else, but Zampella did note that you’ll get to wield a lightsaber. Given that Respawn is behind the game, there’s plenty of reason to be excited.

Update 4:40PM ET: Added detail from Vince Zampella tweet.

If it’s anything like the Jedi Knight games then sign me up.

Jedi outcast is such a great game!

I’d love that, but emphasis on "Dark and Gritty" makes it sound more like 2018’s generic grey and brown than a Masterpiece like that series.

I can hope, but this is EA, so….

Jedi Knight was dark and gritty in that so bad it’s good 90s dark and gritty. You have him all snarky and edgy to Luke and one of the endings has him kill Jan

but will it be canon?

Yeah: all of the books, comics, and games are coordinated and are part of the same, overarching story.

Yup, Battlefront is 100% canon

Disney canon, so no.

Oooh, what an edgy, worthwhile take. Glad to know you hate Disney like all the other cool kids!

There’s definitely two different universes now, how can you deny that? But whatever, if you enjoy Disney’s ideas for Star Wars that’s cool too.

That’s not what was said. They said Disney canon isn’t canon.

Except there aren’t. You can have fan fiction, and that’s all fine and well, and some of it is amazing, but it’s still just fan fiction. The content creator, now Disney, gets to decide what is part of the real story and what isn’t. If the OP doesn’t like it, then don’t watch it, but it doesn’t diminish the fact that there is only one official universe, and that is whatever Disney says it is.

Single player. I’m in.

I’d rather play as the Sith hunting the Jedi down.

Always pick the dark path my friend.

I’ll fly around as a Mynock looking for power cables as long as it’s single player.

It’s weird this was my fav part of the conference. Give me more Jedi games!

I mean, you can play as Jedi in both Battlefront 1 and 2 as well, so I don’t see that as a selling point.

Respawn developing it is, though.

Kanan Jarrus?
