Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Teased Ahead Of Reveal
So be it, Jedi.
Our first look at Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is days away, with an official reveal planned for Star Wars Celebration. The Celebration panel will take place on April 13, but ahead of that big event the studio and EA have updated the official site with a new look at the game's logo. It also updated its social media channel with a scintillating hint at what's to come this weekend.
[Update: The Star Wars Celebration panel has concluded and we've gotten loads of details about Respawn's single-player, no-microtransactions Star Wars game. Original story follows.]
The most intriguing look comes from the EA Star Wars Twitter, which appears to show an image of a shrouded lightsaber accompanied by the phrase "Don't stand out." In the story of Jedi Fallen Order, those who survived the Emperor's purge have gone into hiding, so this may be a reference to that narrative backdrop. We don't have a name or other identifying information about the protagonist, so it's difficult to say yet how this new story will tie into the main narrative of the saga.
The company also debuted the logo for the game, and as you might expect, it puts a heavy emphasis on the word "Jedi." One of the few details we know about Jedi Fallen Order is that you play as a Padawan--essentially a rookie Jedi--and the warrior monks are among the most enduring parts of the Star Wars legacy.
Respawn's Star Wars game is one of the last remaining in production that we know of from EA, after the publisher canceled Amy Hennig's Star Wars game and then shuttering an open-world Star Wars project. Respawn itself is having a big year, not only with Jedi Fallen Order slated for this holiday season, but also with the surprise-hit Apex Legends.
