Despite the lack of a gameplay trailer, fans are pretty pumped up for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Granted, fans are still pretty skeptic since EA is working on it but Respawn have proven to be fairly good developers as Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends have shown so it’s easy to see why people want to like the game. The story is being kept under wraps for now, aside from the fact that it’s set after Revenge of The Sith, but we were given some clues.
According to director Stig Asmussen, the game will only have a few main characters since this is meant to be a smaller story. It’s not just Cal Kestis vs The Empire, but the Jedi will also have to contend with the elements of various planets.
Here is Asmussen’s full explanation (via Gaming Bolt):
“We do have more characters to reveal. The trailer showed Cere. We knew we weren’t going to be able to make a game that has huge crowds in it. I don’t want to worry about things like creating crowd tech. We decided to make a story that’s more ‘man versus wild.’ That allowed us range to go to different places and explore different places. It’s not just Cal versus the environment, but also Cal versus the elements. To a certain extent, the Empire versus the elements as well.”
It seems like Cal will be able to use nature against The Empire, which is always nice to see. Since the game will supposedly be more Dark Souls-like, it will be fun to see how nature is incorporated in the game, likely through The Force.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is coming out on November 15 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
