Thousands of Star Wars fans gathered at McCormick Place in the Windy City to fearless the wind one day and the snow another (we're going to call that "Hoth Appreciation Day").
After dangling little more than a title before us for months, EA and Respawn Entertainment finally revealed more about their new Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order over the weekend.
In a series of tweets, Jay Ingram, Community Engagement Specialist at Electronic Arts, revealed some new details about the upcoming Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. She mentions that Jedi: Fallen Order was likely in development before EA acquired Respawn, thus giving the studio a leg up on creative decisions.
"It's testing an enemy, finding their weakness, figuring out how to exploit it". A New Jedi Story BeginsAs a former Padawan on the run from the Empire, you must complete your training before Imperial Inquisitors discover your plan to revive the Jedi Order. There are areas where it's hacking stuff, because that is the fantasy where you can just mow through Stormtroopers.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Hennig opens up about the Star Wars project she joined Visceral to create-codenamed "Ragtag"- and how it was inspired by the original Star Wars films. You can check out ALL the different outfits in the gallery below.
But that's just the start of what players are in for, teases Douglas Reilly, vice president of Lucasfilm Games. After hearing about an upcoming Star Wars game again in 2019, it's understandably hard to let yourself be excited, but despite the doubt and disappointment that hovers over the Star Wars game franchise, perhaps not all hope is lost.
The villain titled the "Second Sister" from the trailer looks a lot like Kylo Ren and Darth Vader, and we're hoping they too will be a hateable yet complex character with clear motivations who we will at one point get to fight.
The game is now scheduled for a November 15th release! "No microtransactions. It's a story game".
She would go on to state that during the hiatus they plan to map out the next decade of storytelling, "And we're taking the time to really look at where this is going from the standpoint of a saga".
"We want to show you enough for you to be invested and want to play it", Zampella says.
But, Reilly adds, "the secrets pay off".
