Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (11/15/2019: PC, PS4, XB1)

...led by Stig Asmussen of God of War fame. From the horse's mouth:

At EA right now, we have multiple studios building a variety of great Star Wars games spanning different genres. We are all united by our teams’ passion for Star Wars™ stories, characters, and adventures.

Today, I’m thrilled to be able to announce that EA and the talented team at Respawn Entertainment have expanded our relationship to include the development of an all-new 3rd person action adventure game set in the Star Wars universe. They join our other great studios – Visceral Games, DICE, Capital Games, BioWare, Motive and more – who are currently working on Star Wars projects. If you’re interested in joining us on this adventure, you can visit our Careers page – we have openings at Visceral and Motive and will be sharing more on these experiences soon.

Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with Vince Zampella and his group. Their obsession with making games that feel amazing has helped make Titanfall one of the most successful new game launches of this generation. And now, with a new team led by Stig Asmussen, we get to see what they can do when you combine that great attention to gameplay with the power of Star Wars.

There’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan. The passion we’re seeing for Star Wars from gamers – whether they’ve been along for the ride since Star Wars™: Episode IV: A New Hope™, or were introduced to the magic of Star Wars with Star Wars™: The Force Awakens™ – is fueling our development teams and our partners to create unique interactive extensions of this deep, meaningful universe. As a game maker, nothing is more exciting.

Thank you and May the Fourth be with you,

Patrick
We don't know too much yet. Unreal Engine 4. Third-person action-adventure.

I'm looking forward to what else Respawn can do with Star Wars. Outside of Bioware, i'm probably the most interesting in what they can do.

So this came out of an earnings call for EA:

They also revealed that developer Respawn’s upcoming action title based in the “Star Wars” universe will hit late 2019/early 2020 which suggests it will take the slot “Star Wars Battlefield 3” would have taken if the sequel had been a success.

I would not be surprised if BattleFRONT3 (why did they say Battlefield?) isn't a real thing. How much more could they add in terms of ingenuity short of new maps and skins? We could get that with DLC. Hopefully Respawn doesn't given us some half-assed game like The Force Unleashed... I'd really like to see a KOTOR type game.

Great studio. I'm glad to see it's not being cannibalized by other EA offshoots. It's still a shame that Titanfall 2 got sent out to die. It had a great campaign and very solid MP.

Might as well bump this thread up to make it the official one. Here's 13 mins of gameplay just released

Looks good. Thoughts:

I guess Respawn really likes their wall running mechanic.

Looks like the early comparisons to Dark Souls combat we’re pretty accurate.

I hope the powers are more more varied than push/pull/stasis.

The healing animation is great.

Yeah the first minute, reminded me of Titanfall 2 story mode. Looks real good.

They have the look, sound and music down....The Lightsaber is dead on. I'm glad they've gone back to a central character and story. Combat & Powers were really good....in the immortal words of Darth....'Impressive...quite impressive"

re: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (11/15/2019: PC, PS4, XB1)

that looked damn good right? i have the last one SW game that came out, Battlefront 2, i think, (haven't played through yet) but this looks like all the SW goodness with some Prince of Persia like gameplay. i'm ordering. i'll be damned if they don't come out with a great SW game we've (me) have longed for. this could be it...

On paper, this is checking all the right boxes (combat, exploration, etc.), and I like pretty much everything I've seen so far, but I'm trying to stay cautious about getting too carried away. Too many games show really well in trailers and demos, but end up shitting the bed once released.

I don’t know what it is about this game, but I don’t find the graphics terribly impressive. Maybe it’s the animation style but it feels like it could look better (the characters especially). Gameplay looks good though and the storyline should be good.

I'm the same way. Nothing that I've seen of this game excites me, and I love just about everything Respawn has done.

The main character reminds me of Rusty from National Lampoon's European Vacation.

I think it looks fantastic. Love the slightly more cartoony style instead of ultra realistic.

I don’t necessarily like ultra realistic but just wish it wasn’t quite as animated. As much the game isn’t the best I think visually Battlefront II is a better looking game.

I liked it from first trailer. I dropped the latest (SW: Battleground 2 or whatever for one reason or another. Liked it, but since the first trailer I saw of this, it looks like the Star Wars game I always wanted to play...

No multi-player... I don't know if that is new news or I missed it from the get-go. Either way, I'm disappointed. I hope the game brings enough to the table to keep it engaging for 20+ hours.

I hardly ever do multi-player, so this sounds right up my alley.

Re: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (11/15/2019: PC, PS4, XB1)

I for one am glad that Respawn focused this Star Wars game on single player...there's countless other MP & PvP games out there dime-a-dozen including Apex Legends from Respawn....and a lot out there it seems are also perfectly happy with finally getting a SP Base Game after getting SW Battlefront I & II...shades of Jedi Knight: Outcast......

...but who knows what they might end up doing...heck they added a sort of Horde/Defend Mode in Titanfall II that's just fun as heck to play. I wouldn't mind seeing something like that or maybe a 2 Player Co-op mode with some small missions. But PvP...nope....there was Battlefront 1 & 2 and now there is Apex, COD, Destiny, Overwatch, Ghost Recon, Red Dead, The Division 2, Fortnight and of course Fallout 76 which everyone knows just how great that PvP w/PvE mix worked out....
