Whereas followers of the galactic franchise have seen official tie-ins within the type of Star Wars Battlefront I and II, the brand new entry appears to be taking a distinct tack, probably specializing in a single-player expertise extra in keeping with 2008’s The Pressure Unleashed – however we’ve all of the concrete information and wild hypothesis you may need beneath.
Reduce to the chase
- What’s it? A brand new single-player Star Wars sport from the creators of Titanfall
- What can I play it on? It is all however sure we’ll see it on PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Jedi: Fallen Order launch date
Jedi: Fallen Order has been confirmed for launch in time for the 2019 vacation season within the US, so we anticipate to see it a while across the finish of subsequent 12 months, in time for Christmas.
Star Wars Battlefront I and II have been each launched on November 17, in 2015 and 2017 respectively, so it is probably Fallen Order will fall on the identical date. Given the two-year home windows between every sport, although, this may occasionally imply a 3rd Battlefront sport is a good distance off.
Jedi: Fallen Order trailers

Jedi: Fallen Order information and rumors
It is set after Revenge of the Sith
We do not know the precise time through which the sport is about, however we have heard that it’ll happen in some unspecified time in the future between Episodes three and 4, after the top of Revenge of the Sith however earlier than Luke Skywalker’s look in A New Hope.
This locations it after the Galactic Empire hunted the 10,000-strong Jedi Order virtually to extinction, leaving solely a small fraction of Jedi alive. With the promise that the sport shall be set ‘in the dead of night instances’, it seems like our Jedi protagonist could also be extra the hunted than the hunter.
You may play as a younger padawan
EA’s official webpage for Fallen Order specifies you may play “a surviving Padawan”, technically which means a Jedi apprentice slightly than a fully-fledged grasp of the Pressure. Given the dearth of dwelling mentors left to coach you, it is doable Obi-Wan Kenobi or Yoda – or some much less high-profile Jedi, like Quinlan Vos – will seem in a supporting position.
The only-player mode comes first
Respawn co-founder Vince Zambella tweeted concerning the upcoming sport, describing it as an ‘SP’ (single-player) story. Whereas a multiplayer element appears probably, given each Respawn’s strengths within the space and EA’s give attention to on-line play, it seems like the first focus this time may very well be on a well-delivered single-player expertise.
I discover your lack of religion disturbing
It has been a little bit of a fallow 12 months for Star Wars, with Star Wars: A Solo Story struggling in cinemas and the unfavorable participant response to EA Cube’s Star Wars: Battlefront 2 – largely in response to its prevalent use of microtransactions – nonetheless in current reminiscence.
Jedi: Fallen Order has been handed to a distinct studio, albeit one which’s nonetheless a subsidiary of EA. However Respawn has garnered quite a lot of respect because the studio behind Titanfall and Titanfall 2, two critically acclaimed sci-fi motion video games that pit gamers towards one another in big mechanized fits, and which each got here with robust single-player and multiplayer choices.
So, whereas we have not heard a lot about Fallen Order thus far, it appears like the sport is in secure fingers.
