Will Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Answer the Call of Gamers?

The gaming industry for the past decade has been primarily centered around multiplayer-focused titles. As with most industries – times change. For years now, gamers have been making calls for developers to create more single-player, story-driven experiences rather than churning out online multiplayer titles year after year. Those calls have mostly fallen upon deaf ears, however. Why? Well, mostly because multiplayer games rake in huge money and keep player bases active for longer. Nevertheless, some developers are finally starting to see that narrative-heavy, non-multiplayer pieces have a good market as well. Respawn Interactive is delivering one in particular soon that has gamers hyped-up big time – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Fallen Order is set a few years beyond Revenge of the Sith. The protagonist, Cal Kestis, is a previous Padawan currently on the run from the Empire after Order 66 was enacted. With the powers-that-be of the Dark Side…

Why Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Won’t Allow Dismemberment Too Often

Despite the fact that every true Star Wars fan knows and respects the limb-slicing capabilities of a lightsaber – we really haven’t seen much of it in the franchise’s video games. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order isn’t going to break the cycle either, says Aaron Contreras, the narrative lead at Respawn Entertainment. While the developers recognize that players would love to have the ability to chop off arms and other body parts – Respawn states that they prefer to save this gruesome display of power for pivotal moments in the story itself. A sentiment that they believe follows the same climatic experiences of the Star Wars movies. Star Wars games have, for the most part, been pretty conservative when it comes to gore and extreme violence. A few key moments in campaigns feature some brutal lightsaber action, but not much else. There have been titles where the gore levels were…

Why EA Shifted to Single-Player with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade it’s probably challenging to understand how Electronic Arts (EA), a company that seems to know nothing but multiplayer titles and bad press, has made the decision to publish a game the likes of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. A single-player experience with no opportunities for season passes or loot boxes? Something seems off. That is EA’s modus operandi, after all. How did EA of all companies wind up making the decision to shift to a single-player, campaign-driven title? To be fair, they do have a few titles with great stories behind them. This still is, however, the company that has produced a couple Star Wars games already that have practically ZERO narrative and are solely focused on multiplayer (yes, we’re referring to the Battlefront games). Nevertheless, here we are – with Electronic Arts being the publisher putting out Star…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Developer Interview Digs Into Decision of Going the Single-Player Route

A single-player, narrative-based Star Wars title has been a rarity in the gaming industry for the better part of 10 years now. The last true story-drive game within the franchise prior to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II which made its debut in 2008. The announcement of a new single-player title in the Star Wars universe was a surprise on its own. Combine that with the fact that it’s being published by none other than EA and you’d probably think the news were a farce had we not gotten a concrete launch date, trailers, and more at this point. Electronic Arts isn’t exactly known for having a great public image with gamers these days. Plus, they’re notorious for putting out nothing but multiplayer titles riddled with microtransactions (up until Battlefront 2, at least). So, what made EA of all publishers decide to take up…

Why Fallen Order is Set Shortly After Revenge of the Sith When asked about the timeline of the game, Contreras stated that the Respawn team decided to roll with a period just a few years past Revenge of the Sith because they found it to be one of the most intriguing ages in the Star Wars franchise. Aaron went on to say that due to the Empire having immense power throughout the galaxy during this time and Order 66 being in place, this period paved the way for a story based on an emerging hero – one that has to stay off the Empire’s radar and fighting to flee persecution.
