Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order 12 Starter Tips You Need To Know

Be sure you're prepared before embarking on your journey across the Star Wars galaxy as Jedi padawan Cal Kestis. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

So you want to be a Jedi Knight, but in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order you'll need to work to get there since the game can be quite challenging. That's where we come in with a beginner's guide to get you going in the right direction; in the video above, we outline 12 spoiler-free tips to get you started.

Our tips consist of using helpful mechanics, like consulting BD-1 for pointers in the adventure-style puzzles found throughout the game. We also suggest toying around with the different difficulties since these settings change how the game plays; higher difficulties shorten parry-timing windows and make enemies more aggressive, rather than affecting the damage they deal. There's also a very special weapon that you can unlock before the main story hands it to you, but it's going to be quite a challenge if you're not prepared.

We also delve into how you should build out your skill tree with some upgrades and Force powers being more effective than others. And that's important because survival is key as Fallen Order borrows mechanics from the Soulsborne games; we give you advice on how to navigate this style of game, especially if you're new to them.

We have the game covered from all sorts of angles, so be sure to read our full Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review, our guide on the best skills to unlock, and our tips on how to take down those intimidating Purge Troopers.
