E3 2018 got its unofficial kickoff on Saturday with the EA Play press conference, where the publisher finally unwrapped the future of one of its Star Wars games currently in development, Jedi Fallen Order. Although there wasn't any video or gameplay footage, Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella was able to offer a few details on the new game in production at his studio, which is best known for the Titanfall series.

Respawn's new Star Wars game is titled Jedi Fallen Order. It will be set between Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope, during a period of time when the galaxy was plagued by darkness and the Jedi were being hunted. There are few details on who the protagonist is, but players will assume the role of a surviving Padawan, meaning you'll get to wield a lightsaber. The game is scheduled for release during the holiday season in 2019, but unfortunately we don't have any more ideas about what will set this game apart from.

Late last year, EA shut down Visceral Games and said it would be revamping the single-player Star Wars game it was working on. An open-world game is also planned. No new details on those were shared during EA Play, nor do we know exactly when either one will be released. As for Respawn's other teams, it has two more games in the works, but again, those were not showcased during EA Play.

E3 will continue along tomorrow with press conferences from Microsoft and Bethesda, and then even more to follow on Monday and Tuesday. Follow along with our full schedule to plan your viewing.
