EA has announced we’ll get our first ever look at Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago.
Star Wars Celebration Chicago takes place from April 11th-15th and there’ll be a special panel on Saturday, April 13th, dedicated to revealing what Respawn has been working on alongside Apex Legends.
Players will finally see who the mysterious Padawan is who survived Order 66 (the extermination of all Jedi) in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. They’ll be the playable protagonist in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, taking part in a galaxy-trotting adventure set between the events of Star Wars Episode III & IV: A New Hope.
EA has also reconfirmed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is on track for a fall 2019 release and that we can expect plenty of details during the Star Wars Celebration event.
It’s been so long since we’ve had a genuinely great Star Wars game that I think there’s a real opportunity to knock it out the park here with Fallen Order. We know Respawn has the shooter chops thanks to Titanfall and Apex, and now we just want to see that turned toward a meaty single-player Star Wars experience.
We’ll bring you more details of SWJ: Fallen Order just as soon as we hear it.
