Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an upcoming single-player action-adventure video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, set in the Star Wars universe shortly after Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. It was announced during E3 2018 and a more detailed reveal took place at the Star Wars Celebration in April 2019. The game will be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15, 2019.

Premise[edit]

Taking place after Order 66, which started the galaxy-wide purge of the Jedi Order, players take control of Padawan Cal Kestis (portrayed by Cameron Monaghan), one of the last surviving Jedi.[2]

Development[edit]

Stig Asmussen joined Respawn Entertainment in 2014 as the studio's game director, leading the studio's second development team.[3] The project was later revealed to be a third-person action-adventure game set in the Star Wars universe in May 2018.[4] Aaron Contreras, who wrote the story of Mafia III, led the game's narrative team, which included Chris Avellone and four other writers.[5] The studio also collaborated with Lucasfilm to create new characters and locations.[6]

The game was created with Unreal Engine 4.[7]

Marketing and release[edit]

Publisher Electronic Arts announced the game at E3 2018.[8] It is set to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15, 2019, a month before the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.[9]
