EA Announces Star Wars: Jedi -- Fallen Order, Set Between Episodes III & IV


The game will be set in the years in between cinematic Episodes III and IV, while the title implies sometime after the Jedi massacre of Order 66. We're also going to be scouring E3 and the internet for breaking stories, interesting tidbits, and rumours of what is still to be announced. Fans should expect the exemplary level of quality first established at Respawn with Titanfall, a game that epitomizes our studio's dedication to slick, larger-than-life action and fun, groundbreaking mechanics. While exact gameplay details weren't shared just yet, Zampella did say that you will get to play as the Jedi, in some capacity, though we'll surely get more specific details on the game as it gets closer to release. Aside from that, all we know is that the game will drop sometime during the 2019 holiday season.

Respawn Entertainment teased its Star Wars game today during EA Play 2018 at E3.
