Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Releases New Tease Ahead of its Star Wars Celebration Reveal
This weekend is going to be an important one nerf herders the world over, as Lucasfilm will be holding their annual Star Wars Celebration in Chicago from April 11 to April 16. Expect plenty of big announcements, including a first-ever look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order! The game was announced back at the EA Play press conference prior to E3 2018, but we’ve yet to actually see it in action. Heck, we haven’t even got a teaser, logo, or anything to chew on. Well, that’s now changed, as the official Star Wars Twitter account just posted this…
Become a Jedi. Tune-in for first look at #StarWarsJediFallenOrder this Saturday, at 1:30pm CDT from #StarWarsCelebration. Watch live at https://t.co/iI4qodqiOf, stay up to-date with the latest from Celebration at https://t.co/mVXi17qoJk. @EAStarWars pic.twitter.com/3B3bR3XDmn

Okay, I’ll admit, I’m no Star Wars lore expert, so I’m not exactly sure what kind of lightsaber that is, or what those runes behind it mean, but I’m sure the ultra-hardcore fans will have plenty to pick over. You can get a better look at the broken lightsaber hilt in the image below (click the image for full resolution).
The Star Wars Jedi panel will take place on Saturday, April 13. Here’s what to expect from it:
In a special panel on Saturday, April 13, EA and Respawn will pull back the curtain on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, in which gamers will meet a Padawan who survived Order 66 and explore the galaxy in the time after the fall of the Jedi Order. The discussion will feature never-before-released details about the game.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be a third-person action-adventure, in which players primarily wield lightsabers, rather than guns/blasters. Beyond that, and the basic story synopsis above, we don’t know all that much about the game. That said, there’s reason to be excited, as the game is said to play “spectacularly well,” and developer Respawn Entertainment has an impressive track record – Titanfall 2 was hugely underappreciated and Apex Legends is killing it right now. Oh, and Chris Avellone (writer of Fallout 2, Neverwinter Nights 2, Knights of the Old Republic 2, and Fallout: New Vegas, just to name a few) also worked on the game.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is scheduled to launch sometime in late 2019. Excited to see what Respawn has been cooking up?
