“Cal Kestis—one of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order after the purge of Order 66—is now a Padawan on the run.”
During their special panel at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Respawn Entertainment have released the first trailer and details for Jedi: The Fallen Order!
If you’re thinking that Cal Kestis looks a little familiar, that’s because actor Cameron Monaghan provided the motion capture and voice for the new character. Cameron joined the Respawn team on stage after the trailer played to talk about his experience becoming this new Jedi and working on his first video game.
Respawn kicked off the panel by confirming that the game is story focused and is a completely single player experience – there is no multiplayer mode and no micro-transactions, which was met with thunderous applause and cheers from the crowd.
We learned that Cal Kestis is a Padawan and survivor of Order 66, so he’s on the run as the Empire hunts down any remaining Jedi.
The Respawn team told the crowd that the in-game combat was a strong focus for them and that they wanted to make it accessible to everyone, but that it also has a lot of depth to it that will be fun for more experienced players.
Experience this all-new single-player Star Wars™ story from Respawn Entertainment and EA Star Wars on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC 15th November 2019.
