6 Comments

As Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order continues to win critics over with its excellent genre-blending, developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts has announced that the third-person action-adventure title is doing well on the market. Jedi Fallen Order has become the fastest-selling digital launch for a Star Wars game in its first two weeks and EA's top-selling PC Star Wars game in its initial launch window.

EA delivered the news in a press release, where the company said Jedi Fallen Order is "the highest-rated Star Wars game of this console generation." For comparison, GameSpot sister site Metacritic says Star Wars Battlefront has a 73 average score, Star Wars Battlefront II is scored at about 66, and LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens hovers around 75. Jedi Fallen Order averages 81 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Respawn studio head Vince Zampella thanked everyone for their support and said Star Wars fans have a lot to look forward to. "Telling a story in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true and the reception from the fans has been incredible," Zampella said in the press release. "With the launch of the game, the debut of The Mandalorian and the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it's a great time to be a Star Wars fan!"

EA acquired the Star Wars license near the beginning of the decade, when the company and Disney signed a 10-year deal in 2013 for EA to develop games within the Star Wars universe. EA has only released a handful of Star Wars titles: 2011's Star Wars: The Old Republic, 2015's Star Wars Battlefront I and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, 2017's Star Wars Battlefront II, and this year's Jedi Fallen Order. While Battlefront I and II are both on PC via Origin and Steam, The Old Republic is the only PC-exclusive Star Wars title by EA and it holds an 85 Metacritic score.

In our Jedi Fallen Order review, we said, "But especially as it wears on, Fallen Order becomes perhaps the strongest conception of what playing as a Jedi Knight ought to really be like. Even with some rough edges, Fallen Order represents one of the most compelling game additions to the Star Wars franchise in years."

With Black Friday steadily approaching, now's a great time to pick up Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. There are a plethora of discounts on the game right now, from straight game deals to console bundles from retailers Best Buy and Target.
