Watch E3 2019's First Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Gameplay Trailer From EA Play
EA Play (and the lightsabers) are in full swing.
One of the first big E3 2019 events was EA Play, and the livestream portion of the broadcast with news and reveals has concluded. The show started out with its most exciting game, as the long-awaited gameplay reveal for Respawn's Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order delivered more than 10 minutes of lightsaber-swinging action, Force-enhanced parkour, and cute droid hijinks. You can watch the gameplay footage for yourself above, or check out the video above for our thoughts on an expanded version demo we saw behind closed doors.
Even though the Jedi Fallen Order portion of the broadcast is now over, more is coming on Sunday during Microsoft's Xbox press conference. In the gameplay we did get, Respawn revealed what Fallen Order's "thoughtful combat" is all about and the appearance of a familiar face from Rogue One and Clone Wars showed up as well. Additionally, we got a look at some of Cal's Force abilities, which include the standard Force pushes and pulls along with the ability to slow down time. This can be combined with the other powers for some fun hijinks.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is being developed by Respawn, the studio behind the popular Titanfall franchise and its spin-off battle royale game, Apex Legends. Fallen Order is entirely single-player, with no microtransactions--position it in stark contrast to EA's controversial Star Wars Battlefront II. Respawn has another Titanfall project in the works but has delayed it to focus on Fallen Order and further fleshing out Apex Legends.

Fallen Order focuses on the adventure of Cal Kestis, a Jedi Padawan that escaped Order 66 and now lives as a fugitive in hiding from the Galactic Empire. His life as a salvager comes to an end when he uses the Force to save his friend, revealing his identity to those who want him dead. Now on the run, Cal has to rely on his minimal training to escape from the masked Second Sister--one of Darth Vader's Jedi-hunting Inquisitors--and Purge Troopers. He won't be completely alone though, as Cal's journey across the galaxy sees him discovering a surviving Jedi Knight.
