Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

This is why I’m not fully hyped yet.

If this game plays like Force Unleashed, KotoR, Jedi Academy or Battlefront… I’m all in on the Hyperdrive Train™ though.


  • Cinematic, Immersive Combat – Jedi: Fallen Order delivers the fantasy of becoming a Jedi through its innovative lightsaber combat system – striking, parrying, dodging - partnered with a suite of powerful Force abilities you’ll need to leverage to overcome obstacles that stand in your way. This combat system is intuitive to pick up, but takes training and practice to fully master its nuances as you gain new powers and abilities along your adventure.
  • A New Jedi Story Begins - As a former Padawan on the run from the Empire, you must complete your training before Imperial Inquisitors discover your plan to revive the Jedi Order. Aided by a former Jedi Knight, a cantankerous pilot, and a fearless droid, you must escape the evil machinations of the Empire in a story-driven adventure. Explore and overcome a wide range of challenges focused on combat, exploration, and puzzle-solving.
  • The Galaxy Awaits - Ancient forests, windswept rock faces, and haunted jungles are all unique biomes you’ll explore in Jedi: Fallen Order, with the freedom to decide when and where you go next. As you unlock new powers and abilities, opportunities open up to re-traverse maps in new ways; leveraging the Force to augment the way you explore. Move quickly, however, as the Empire is actively hunting your every step in their effort to exterminate all remnants of the Jedi Order.

Great interview. Adds some detail, but still no hints on gameplay.

Rebels influenced…will skip this one.

I mean, Chris only touches briefly on Rebels and how they introduced the ways various races used the Force. He spent way more time talking about how great Clone Wars was.

Can we just call it Force Unleashed 3? This is suuuuuuch a safe title and a reminder that EA is mishandling the license. I’ll wait for it to go on sale.

Setting the demo video at 1.25x - 1.5x playback speed makes the combat and traversal look better.

Still not great, but better.

I loved the first Force Unleashed, so I am all in on this.

The fuck…why not show that?

Here’s the private demo that was shown.

Still looks super safe and boring.

From a combat standpoint I agree 100%. You mean to tell me those Scout Troopers just so happen to all be wielding shock batons and positioned as if they know you’re coming?

The Trooper at the 23 minute mark doesn’t even notice his buddy do a 360° spin-to-belly-flop right next to him.

Intrigue just went up to the level of maybe buying this on black friday.
