EA Games had learned their lesson with Star Wars Battlefront II and their follow-up game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a huge success. Respawn Entertainment is now hard at work on the sequel, and just now they’ve announced that they’re looking for new combat designers for the game.
We're looking for a highly-skilled Combat Designer to join our Star Wars team. Our ideal candidate is well-versed in the areas of hero control/mechanics, enemy design, AI behaviors, combat/weapons, class design, skills/progression, story, and boss encounters. Reporting to the Design Director, our Combat Designers focus on delivering stellar gameplay combat experiences that feel good to play at every level. We’re picturing someone with strong design sensibilities and a passion for combat systems, who will embrace our philosophy and share their hard earned expertise to create an incredible experience for our players.
If there was anything that people loved about Fallen Order, it was the lightsaber combat. While previous games like The Force Unleashed have admittedly made lightsabers kind of OP, Fallen Order decided to go the Dark Souls path and offer more challenging combat that punishes careless players.
While the gameplay isn’t perfect, there is definitely a lot of room for improvement. Hopefully this sequel won’t be as buggy as the original game when it first came out. I’m also hoping for some more variety when it comes to platforming because I’m sure the game wouldn’t have stood out as much if it wasn’t Star Wars.

No release date has been set for the Star Wars Jedi sequel, but Fallen Order is now playable for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
