Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order was today detailed by Respawn and EA at Star Wars Celebration, and we’ve all you need to know, including the game’s release date, setting, characters and a look at some new screenshots and a trailer.
Setting and characters
We already knew that Jedi Fallen Order was set between Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, but now we know who we’re playing as: Padawan Jedi Cal Kestis (Cameron Monaghan from Gotham, Shameless).
Cal has survived the Emperor’s Order 66, in which all Jedi were to be eliminated, and lives his life in secrecy. After being found out, he sets off on the run from enemies called Purge Troopers and their leader, the electrostaff wielding Inquisitor, Second Sister.
“On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities, and master the art of the iconic lightsaber – all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors,” EA said in its own description.
While Cal is new to Star Wars lore and canon, Second Sister is related to Star Wars Rebels‘ Seventh Sister, an Inquisitor herself.
