During EA’s E3 conference, we learned of a new Star Wars adventure game. Respawn Entertainment and EA are teaming up for a game set in-between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope. As of now, it’s slated for a 2019 holiday release. Here’s an official statement from Star Wars’ website.
“Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment revealed some major new details about their previously announced Star Wars game, including its name and release date: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, set to arrive during the 2019 holiday season. Respawn’s Vince Zampella disclosed the new information during an audience interview at today’s press conference and also relayed that the game will be a single-player, action-adventure title that tells a new story set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Zampella confirmed that Respawn is collaborating very closely with Lucasfilm on the project.”
Unfortunately, we don’t have much to go on, but thought of a single-player Star Wars adventure is enough to get us excited.
That wasn’t the only Star Wars announcement of the day. We also got news on Star Wars Battlefront II. In the coming months, Battlefront will add characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Soon players will be able to use Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, General Grievous, and Count Dooku.
We’ll be back with more E3 coverage in the coming days.
