Now Playing: Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order — Official Story Reveal Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

The first gameplay reveal for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to occur during EA Play 2019. The event is scheduled for next month, in the week prior to E3 2019.

This year, EA's annual EA Play event will be separated into multiple livestreams that air during the week prior to E3, and the company is not holding a press conference during E3. The first day of EA Play will occur on Friday, June 7 and the event will continue until Tuesday, June 11. EA Play is scheduled to take place at the Hollywood Palladium, and attendees will be able to watch presentations and play unreleased games. Whether Jedi: Fallen Order is one of them has yet to be revealed.

Last year, EA used EA Play to show off gameplay for Anthem, BioWare's ambitious if troubled loot-shooter, as well as detail its future plans for Battlefield V and announce several new EA Original titles, such as Sea of Solitude. Some of the games shown off at EA Play, like Sea of Solitude, have still not yet released, so there's a chance we'll hear more details or see new trailers for these titles at the event this year.

Jedi: Fallen Order was revealed at E3 2018, with the first major details and story trailer released during this year's Star Wars Celebration. One of the six writers for Jedi: Fallen Order, Chris Avellone, said that story is "very important" to developer Respawn. "I think they do a good job of introducing various narrative layers into their games already, but they think the story is an important part of what they perceive to be a Star Wars game," Avellone continued. "That's one of the reasons I like Respawn, because when they tackle something like that, they understand what the important points are."

Scheduled to release November 15 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order takes place in the aftermath of Revenge of the Sith. The game puts you in the role of Cal Kestis, a Jedi padawan who escaped Order 66 and is now living in hiding from the Galactic Empire. However, he can't remain hidden forever, and eventually the Empire sends one of its Jedi-hunting Inquisitors, the Second Sister, and Purge Troopers after him. Neither EA or Respawn has revealed much about Jedi: Fallen Order other than that, but there are quite a few people and places we hope we get to see in the game.

In honor of Star Wars Day (May 4), several movies, games, toys, and collectibles are also on sale.

I miss Lucas Arts so much..

The Golden Era- Jedi Knight games(Academy,Outcast) KOTOR,Empire@War,Force Unleashed 1 was good & under todays progression system would be amazing.

SW deserves so much more then Disney/EA..

Thanks a lot George!

Still trying to wrap my head around this no micro transaction EA game, it just doesn’t sound right

There has gotta be a catch

@fulcrvm:

I suspect it's either:
- The game is very linear and barren of content, takes only 5-6 hours to finish, meaning that they are just rushing the product out for cash before they go on to another game.

or

- They mask mtx as something else, either slicing the game up in DLCs, make it a season pass exclusive thing. Perhaps they, like Gearbox, think cosmetics only are not mtx, so there'll be tons of that. The final, unheard of, alternative is that they actually have a decent, quality game with no extra transactions. If so, that's like the first sign of the apocalypse.

@grandtheftaugust: It wouldn't surprise me if it was a combination of both of those possibilities.

What will the transaction fees be to view each of the livestreams?
