Become a Jedi in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order



Respawn Entertainment, the EA studio behind Titanfall and Apex Legends, is determined to rinse away any residual bitter aftertaste, following stablemate Dice's Star Wars: Battlefront II microtransactions debacle, with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for PS4 and Xbox One this November.



An official reveal trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was shown during Star Wars Celebration Chicago. The canon single-player video game is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and you play as Padawan Cal Kestis, played by Cameron Monaghan (Gotham), as he's pursued by the Empire lead by the Second Sister.



EA took to Twitter to assuage Star Wars fans' concerns regarding microtransactions and loot boxes being added post-launch.

"No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won't be adding them," EA said. "A single-player Star Wars story for those of you who are ready to become a Jedi."

The thought of playing as a Padawan on the run, in the wake of Order 66, is too compelling to resist a month before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is released in cinemas. I'll be picking this up day-one for Xbox One X.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available for pre-order (affiliate link).

So, what do you think? Is the promise of no microtransactions enough? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Dream come true. However, I feel Disney have said to EA "make this work and please the fans or else." Basically, this has to work and has to be successful otherwise the single player triple A game will be even more in danger. It has to work!

    1. Agreed! Goodwill is paramount ahead of the final instalment in the Skywalker saga this holiday season. No disintegrations.
