EA Play 2019 - Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Gameplay Demo

Adjust Comment Print

Ours in Jedi: Fallen Order is nothing like that, but it was a good exercise to go through. Electronic Arts' (EA) conference, EA Play, took place today, and the company revealed 15 minutes of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay right at the start. In the bottom middle part of the screen, a force meter depletes and refills anytime Cal uses Jedi abilities.

Traversing the environment was similar to many other games of the genre whether it was swinging from vines or climbing up walls. The gameplay took place about three hours into the game on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. We also saw lightsaber combat (which looks absolutely incredible) as well as usage of force abilities. We've only gotten a tiny glimpse of the game in action thanks to a teaser tweet (which you can see below), so we have little sense for how it will play out or what the "thoughtful combat" that developer Respawn has touted means.

A New Jedi Story Begins - As a former Padawan on the run from the Empire, you must complete your training before Imperial Inquisitors discover your plan to revive the Jedi Order. While we doubt that we've seen everything it has to offer, it does look decent, opting for a dynamic system that's actually quite open ended.

It comes as some Western countries, led by the USA , have blocked the Chinese firm on concerns it poses a national security risk. The deal was signed Wednesday in Moscow , as Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin looked on.

We already knew that story would play a big role in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but the newly-released video also shed light on the game's platforming and combat. The demo showcased combinations of abilities like freezing an enemy, pulling him toward you, then using him as a human shield as his bullet flies into his back. Titanfall 2 had one of the better first-person shooter campaigns of the decade, and I'm hopeful that Fallen Order is just as compelling.
