First, it was Mandalorian 2nd trailer release yesterday and now it's Jedi Fallen Order turn, what a great time to be a Star Wars fan this November! Respawn has been working hard to deliver their latest AA game and it's one of the Star Wars single player game I'm looking forward to the most. (Sorry Death Stranding)

Sorry Episode 9, I don't even know who you are anymore :(

The trailer is sick. The only thing that prevents me from buying this game is the difficulty. I am not good at souls games, and apparently this is also pretty difficult.

Honestly this is the first game with an EA badge on it that I have been excited for since Dragon Age Inquisition.

@x_hedon: Don't feel bad. I played all the Dark Soul games and even I'm not good at it but at the same time, it's all about reflexes and timing. At least the Force is on my side :)

I’m pretty hyped for this game myself. I really liked what I’ve seen so far and Respawn has a really solid track record in my opinion.

It's also going to be the first of EA's new games to be put on Steam.

On a side note: I've never seen Star Wars don't feel like it anytime soon

Its coming to steam

plus its going to be best star wars game ever made. simply because all of them suck before.

dark force 2 was good for its time but now dated. jedi outcast and republic commando were bad. so was KOTOR was overrated.

I think star wars doesnot suit FPS because guns in star wars are just some wierd laser pew pew gun. infact republic commando feel like bad halo game with squad mechanics.

Good good good.

Could use a nice, single-player, story-driven Star Wars game, hopefully free of microtransactions (or at least not have the store in-game and in your face screaming BUY MORE SHIIIIIIIIIIIT!)

I don't think Respawn/EA are lying when they say Jedi Fallen Order will not have microtransaction/loot boxes and won't be added after launch. Disney probably doesn't want anymore bad PR after Battlefront 2 disaster. Episode 9 is just around the corner, not that I care about the movie myself.

Also Respawn using Unreal Engine 4 not Frostbite Engine. Frostbite Engine is rumored to be partially to blame for Anthem and Mass Effect Andromeda being so buggy and the cancellation of Visceral Star War game and closer of the studio.

I think Jedi Fallen Order looks good and plain on buying next year.

@x_hedon: I forgot to tell you this. Jedi Fallen Order will have 4 difficulty like:

  1. Story/Easy-taking less damage, longer parry counter-attacks, enemies less aggressive.
  2. Jedi Knight/Normal-game plays as it intends to do it's own thing, balance.
  3. Jedi Master/hard-Small parry window and cal takes more damage.
  4. Grandmaster/very hard-more damage taken, small parry, enemies more aggressive.

Story is more suited for your liking.

EA has clearly said their will be no microtransactions since this is a single player game only and Respawn also told them they do not want any of that crap in their game since day one. I know EA gets more crap cause they always never learned and this time around, seems like they came to their sense and go do what CDPR route.

Funny thing is, EA is actually riding the Mandalorian hype train (then episode 9) since both of their trailers release. Unreal Engine 4 has always been a much better engine then Frostbite engine and you can tell they pick the right engine for this type of game.

Yeah I remember reading about Frostbite and how terrible it is. How they had no support, and when they did, it was from Sweden or whatever.

Super excited for this game! I watched an hour of gameplay and it looks right up my alley. I really liked the Jedi Knight games in the past from decades go. This will be fun!

I haven't really been paying attention, but I don't really understand the hype. I've seen no sign that this SW game will be better than recent SW games. That trailer was just some cinematic bullshit and made me even less interested. I'm not a fan of either EA or Respawn. Game reminds me of Force Unleashed, another SW game I don't care about.

I'll let the early adopters tell me if it's just an average and derivate action game with a SW theme, or if it's something that's actually worth playing.

I'm waiting to hear what the reviewers say, although I doubt I'll buy it anytime soon if I desire to put it on my wish list. Too many games I want to buy or re-buy first. (Re-buy as in physical copies.)

That said, what I've seen so far looks promising.

Since this is a hype thread I'm saying this'll get a AAA score.

Respawn can do no wrong at the moment.

Respawn. thats why this star wars game will be better

and beside i have not seen any cinematic elements, all i see is interesting level design, exploration and puzzle here. i didnot seen any QTE.

theres many reason why this star wars will turn out better than any star wars before. even KOTOR.

In a way, yes. But it takes place after episode 3 due to Order 66 (Jedi Purge) & right before the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Not sure about Solo: A Star Wars Story.

I still need to wait for reviews for this one. I just can't get that excited for it, even after all these trailers. I think a rep mentioned they will drop closer to release in two weeks.

This could either be one of the surprise hits of the year and ranked as one of the better top-tier Star Wars games, or it could be a mixed-bag game and another disappointment. I could almost see a lot of reviewers using words like "generic" and "bland" throughout their reviews. Let's hope that doesn't happen..for your sake, Respawn.

Yeah I'm thinking it takes place right after Order 66 was issued, so that happens in Episode III.

@ezekiel43: Maybe.... I've never seen or read Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter series either. I don't know why but the aesthetic and setting of Star Wars just repels me even though I like sci fi. Could be because it's more sci fi fantasy than sci fi and I don't really like sci fi fantasy.

@NoodleFighter: Star Wars has always been more aimed towards "Fantasy" then "Sci-Fi" itself but I guess what makes it more Fantasy is the fact the series never takes place on Earth nor in the Star Wars lore they never discover planet Earth is what makes Star Wars so special.

Star Trek however is definitely more Sci-Fi.

The closest tie in to Earth that I remember is E.T. E.T. comes from the Star Wars universe, and his "home" that he is trying to get back to is in the galaxy far far away. When I saw E.T. in Phantom Menace, my childhood dreams were finally made. I always hoped we would see E.T. at home.

I've never been huge on Star Wars either, for me I think its the insane commercialization and annoying fanboys that turn me off more than anything else.

then again, I like Lord of the Rings which is in a similar boat some maybe something else that turns me off the IP.

that being said, i'm optimistic about Jedi: Fallen Order. I reckon Respawn are probably EA's best studio at this point (aka king of the garbage pile)

i'll probably end up playing it

No, the only thing Star Wars I have ever liked was KOTOR 1 & 2, and not because of its setting I just enjoyed the games. Everything else in the Star Wars universe sucks, I have never sat there and watched a Star Wars movie from start to finish, I usually lasts 20mins or so then I walk off lol.

I see ghost above said that KOTOR was overrated which means its a great game as we all know ghost has shit taste.

Star Wars is always ace and Respawn are excellent developers. Bring it on!

The trailer is sick. The only thing that prevents me from buying this game is the difficulty. I am not good at souls games, and apparently this is also pretty difficult.

There is a 0% chance of this being Souls-hard, Star Wars is massively mainstream so they'll definitely have options to let everyone play and enjoy.

Star Wars has always been more aimed towards "Fantasy" then "Sci-Fi" itself but I guess what makes it more Fantasy is the fact the series never takes place on Earth nor in the Star Wars lore they never discover planet Earth is what makes Star Wars so special.

Star Trek however is definitely more Sci-Fi.

"Science Fantasy" is a term that is sometimes used. Basically, if you try and explain the mad shit that happens it's sci-fi, if you just shrug and say don't worry about it, it's fantasy. Depends on what parts of the (extremely) extended universe you look at though.

"The Force is a mysterious energy that binds us all" = fantasy, same as Gandalf casting a spell. It just happens, we don't need to know or care why or how.

"The Force comes from little parasitic creatures in our blood called midichlorians that let us tap into their energy" = science, an attempt to explain seemingly magical acts with a rational explanation based on observation of natural phenomena. Not very well, in this case, I think...

Same deal with lightsaber colours, it used to be (in the original trilogy) a fantasy thing of the goodies using bright colour blades and the baddies using evil red blades. Think they did a whole science-y explanation of crystal types to explain that, too...

Personally, I prefer the fantasy thing of just saying **** it, the Force exists and baddies use red blades. I don't care why :P

Star Wars is actually considered Science Fantasy than Sci-Fi because the franchise has elements of both sci-fi and fantasy.
