Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order finally has platforms and a release date: it is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15, 2019, developer Respawn Entertainment has announced. The date was revealed during the game's panel at this year's Star Wars Celebration event, where it was also confirmed that the PC version would be exclusively available through publisher EA's Origin service. We also got a look at a trailer, although there was unfortunately no gameplay (and few details to be had in general).
We now know that players will take control of a young Padawan that escaped Order 66, the Emperor's decree to wipe out all Jedi--even the younglings in training. You can read more about Jedi Fallen Order's story here. A day before the panel, Respawn confirmed Jedi Fallen Order has no microtranactions and is single-player only.
Although Respawn is known primarily for developing first-person shooters such as the Titanfall series and, more recently, the battle royale hit Apex Legends, Jedi Fallen Order is a is more focused on melee combat. In 2014, God of War 3 director Stig Asmussen joined Respawn, bringing some third-person action expertise to the studio.
Jedi Fallen Order was officially confirmed during E3 2018, when Respawn's Vince Zampella revealed the title and teased that it would be set between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope.
Prior to the reveal at Star Wars Celebration, artwork for Jedi Fallen Order was leaked by Amazon. The retailer listed a t-shirt which featured an image of the main character wielding a blue lightsaber and his droid companion. In the was a downed vessel that looks to be a Republic-era Star Destroyer.
Star Wars Celebration also yielded a new trailer for the next movie in the beloved franchise. During the show it was confirmed to be called Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, and you can watch the first trailer here.
