Original article: Today’s the day we learn more about the mysterious Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from Respawn Entertainment. Electronic Arts via their Twitter have revealed that the game will make an appearance at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, 11:30 am Pacific / 2:30 pm Eastern. But as the celebration is not quite here yet, let’s check out the little crumbs of info Internet managed to gather!
Respawn’s Vince Zampella has confirmed that Fallen Order will not have microtransactions or multiplayer. The game utilizes Unreal 4 Engine and will have Deluxe Editions. VG247 had a chance to sit down with RPG writer Chris Avellone, during which they tried their best to learn Fallen Order’s secrets. Avellone revealed that the game will have a big focus on story, with six narrative designers working on the title.
“I hope [the six writers] are listed in the reveal because I accidentally said ‘I’ve wrapped this up’, but there are other writers and I’m not even the lead guy,” Avellone explained. “Story was very important to Respawn. I think they do a good job of introducing various narrative layers into their games already, but they think story is an important part of what they perceive to be a Star Wars game. That’s one of the reasons I like Respawn, because when they tackle something like that, they understand what the important points are.”
And finally, the last but not the least, there has been a supposed leak of the game-themed merchandise. Both the Reddit thread and the picture from DTF.ru speak of November 15, 2019 release date, aligning with EA’s previous words that the game will release this year.
