EA revealed a lot of new details about the hotly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last night at their E3 2019 conference, including a 13 minute gameplay trailer, and boy does it look great.
One of the tidbits we learned last night was that the game would feature characters from Rogue One, including Forest Whitaker's Saw Gerrera, among other characters from the Disney era movies. The KX droids from Rogue One will also feature, as seen in the gameplay trailer.
Also worth noting was that the game will feature similar gameplay mechanics and systems to Metroid Prime, with the upgrade system and overall game structure being heavily inspired by that game, and Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, with, for example, health canisters for your droid filling in the role of the Estus Flasks from Dark Souls. There's some control similarities, too, for example parry is mapped to the left bumper, as in Sekiro.
Players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities. Players will also use traversal and other platforming abilities to strategically overcome opponents and solve puzzles in their path across this galaxy-spanning adventure.
The gameplay footage speaks for itself, and I for one am super excited for this one. The game is due to be released on the 15th of November this year.
