According to a listing on Amazon Italy as well as merchandise pictures online, the Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order release date is November 15, 2019.
The panel focused more on the story elements of Jedi: Fallen Order.
When Abrams signed on to direct Star Wars 9, the film had an existing script by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, which Trevorrow meant to direct before departing the film over creative differences. The two go on to say that they can not provide details about the lightsaber at this time, as doing so would involve spoilers, but "over the course of the game, it will grow and evolve". "Focusing on Cal stepping back into the shoes of a Jedi post Order 66 opens up a lot of gameplay opportunities and rich story threads to develop for this new character and his backstory". Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977's A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Episode IX.
Players take the role of Cal Kestis (played by actor Cameron Monaghan), a young Padawan in hiding with a lightsaber and force powers.
Purge Troopers will be one of the enemies in Jedi: Fallen Order.
What we know for sure is that Fallen Order will be a singleplayer experience, Respawn having previous confirmed this. Melee combat is going to be huge here and you will be playing as Cal Kestis who is a Force-sensitive being. You can also expect a fair amount of traversal and platforming challenges (a la Titanfall 2) as well as some puzzle solving. And I think it's more effective to have people who have more of a history with Han Solo witness his dead, and be unable to stop it - his wife, the mother of his child, his best friend - instead of two characters who have known him what, 20 minutes?
It's no action game a la Devil May Cry or God of War.
Will Fallen Order have microtransactions or loot boxes? That poster was subsequently officially posted by Respawn Entertainment today, following the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order teaser image from a few days ago.
