Respawn announces Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order for Xbox One and PC

The new Star Wars video game will let players control a surviving Jedi Padawan after Emperor Palpatine has executed Order 66, commanding his new clone army to kill any surviving Jedi in the galaxy, allowing him to take over without interference. Jedi Fallen Order will not be available this year sadly, and is targeting a Holiday 2019 release date. Did Revenge of the Sith only give you a just a small taste? According to the website, the story turns around a Padawan (a trainee Jedi, and nearly certainly the player character) who survives Order 66 (the aforementioned liquidation of the Jedi).

Something to look forward to: Respawn is one of several studios with Star Wars games in the works. Darth Vader? Maybe the game will feature some other famous Star Wars faces. Much of the outcry came from Reddit before the game was even out, with most people too busy shouting about how they thought the loot crates worked to actually play the game.

Said EA Executive VP Patrick Soderlund in a 2016 blog post, "Over the past few years, I've had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with [Respawn founder] Vince Zampella and his group". There is no word yet on who players will be controlling in the game, but fingers crossed we'll see some familiar faces like Obi-Wan Kenobi (mainly so we can get a Ewan McGregor voice cameo). We know that one of their titles is a VR project that Respawn was contracted by Oculus to make.

In a recent news announcement from Electronic Arts, (EA) the company officially unveiled plans for an upcoming Star Wars game.
