Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's Stormtroopers Have Their Own Personalities
No names though. Not yet anyway.
When designing the enemy Stormtroopers you'll fight in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn crafted individual personalities for each one. So even if you're fighting a whole squad, individual troopers will behave and act differently.
"Under the helmet they have personalities, and so we've kind of given them nicknames and call signs," Fallen Order narrative lead Aaron Contreras said, according to PC Gamer. "So it looks like a horde of faceless grunts. And they are because they're Stormtroopers, but they each have a specific personality and they'll interact with each other in ways that are specific to their personality. [So] when one's left alone, it could be the guy who's terrified or it could [be] a guy who's super gung-ho and he's like, 'Now it's my time to shine and take out a Jedi!'"

Individual Stormtroopers will also act differently depending on the make-up of a fight as well. The more observant among the group may inform their peers of their lack of ranged support if they notice you've cut down all of the snipers first. For the most part, Stormtroopers will also stay out of the way of the Purge Troopers if one is in their midst, allowing you to duel with the alpha killer. Of course, defeating said leader will cause the Stormtroopers to react, and those reactions will depend on their prewritten personalities.
Though each Stormtrooper has a call sign and personality, their individuality stops there. Fallen Order lead level designer Jeff Magers said that each trooper does not have their own individual name. Though Contreras did add, "Not yet," so there may still be a possibility that some troopers get even more individuality between now and Fallen Order's launch. As seen in The Last of Us Part II, giving enemies individual names and designing them to care about one another can make for some deeply unsettling combat encounters.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is scheduled to launch for Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 15. We recently got three hours of hands-on time with Fallen Order at a preview event, coming away excited about the upcoming Star Wars game.
