E3 2019 EA Play — Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Features Saw Gerrera

EA may have left the circuit of several press conferences that precede E3, but it’s still a part of the show with EA Play. E3 2019 is no different, and EA has kicked off its annual show with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, providing the first official look at its gameplay and “thoughtful” lightsaber combat. Trailers also revealed how Fallen Order will tie back into the greater Star Wars universe, showcasing a few familiar faces.

Particularly, Saw Gerrera made an appearance early in the gameplay reveal and is working alongside Jedi Fallen Order’s protagonist Cal Kestis. Saw is leading a charge to free Wookies on Kashyyyk which is under control of the Empire. Saw gives Cal a map to pursue this mission.

Saw first made his appearance in Star Wars lore with The Clone Wars animated series, and was an important character in the movie Star Wars: Rogue One where he was portrayed by actor Forest Whitaker.

Also of note was a droid resembling another Rogue One character, K-2SO, although this appears to be a different version.

Developed by Respawn–also responsible for Titanfall, Titanfall 2, and Apex Legends–Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an entirely single-player game with no microtransactions–pretty surprising for an EA title, but a welcome one. Respawn is also working on a Titanfall project but that’s been delayed to 2020 at the earliest so that 2019’s focus remains on Fallen Order and Apex Legends.

Fallen Order is the story of Cal Kestis, a Jedi padawan that never finished his training and became a Knight. The story takes place right after Order 66 is declared, putting it between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Cal hides from the Empire as a salvager on the Outer Rim, until he’s discovered as a Force user. Now on the run, Cal needs to rely on his minimalistic training to escape from the masked Second Sister–one of Darth Vader’s skilled Jedi-hunting Inquisitors–and the Purge Troopers. He won’t be completely alone though, as Cal’s journey across the galaxy sees him discovering a surviving Jedi Knight.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is releasing on November 15 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
