New Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Trailer Focuses On The Villains
Cal has his work cut out for him if he wants to stand against the Second Sister.
A brand-new trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order provides a better sense of the places that protagonist Cal Kestis will visit, as well as the type of threats he'll have to battle and overcome on his journey. After watching the trailer, which is embedded above, be sure to check out our breakdown for a more in-depth analysis of the characters, places, and creatures.
The trailer begins with Cal racing to escape the Second Sister, an Imperial Inquisitor and the main antagonist of Fallen Order. Despite being a Jedi, Cal is clearly outmatched and just barely manages to escape with the help of Cere and Greez. The experience leaves the young Jedi shaken. However, instead of returning to a life of anonymity, he decides to join his new allies in their search for a way to bring back the Jedi Order and stop the Empire for good.
In the remaining scenes of the trailer, we see brief flashes of both gameplay and cinematic cutscenes. There are moments when Cal is exploring what appears to be an ancient Jedi Temple as well as snippets of battles between the young Jedi and different Stormtroopers, Purge Troopers, Imperial Inquisitors, and violent wildlife. Cal's adventures take him to several different planets, all of which seem fairly distinct. In the trailer's final moments, Cal faces off against the Second Sister and her aggressive attacks prove too overwhelming for the young Jedi. She is one terrifying antagonist.
Fallen Order takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, during one of the darkest periods in the Star Wars timeline. Developed by Respawn--a studio also responsible for Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends--Fallen Order is a Souls-like action RPG that utilizes a combat system similar to the one found in From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. In terms of exploration, Respawn took inspiration from Metroid Prime, constructing multiple worlds that you will have to revisit once you unlock additional upgrades if you want to fully explore each environment.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is scheduled to release for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 15.
