Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order reviewed by Dan Stapleton on PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the first new single-player Star Wars game in a long time and is developed by Respawn, the creators of Titanfall, Titanfall 2, and Apex Legends.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player action-adventure video game developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, set in the Star Wars universe shortly after Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. It was announced during E3 2018 and a more detailed reveal took place at the Star Wars Celebration in April 2019. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 15, 2019.
Set five years after Revenge of the Sith, one of the last surviving Jedi, Padawan Cal Kestis, has so far escaped the galaxy-wide purge of the Jedi Order started by Order 66, and is on the run from the Galactic Empire. After attempting to salvage a Venator Class Star Destroyer above a Sarlacc Pit, an accident happens in which Cal has to openly use the Force to save one of his friends from falling into the pit, which is witnessed by a nearby Imperial Probe Droid. The droid transmits the footage to the Empire causing Cal’s true identity to be revealed to the imperials. The Empire dispatches the Second Sister, an inquisitor trained by Darth Vader, to hunt down the Padawan and eradicate the remaining Jedi Knights.
Players take control of Cal Kestis (portrayed by Cameron Monaghan) as he attempts to survive while being chased by the Empire, including the Inquisitor the Second Sister. Throughout his journey, young Cal will visit both new worlds and iconic ones from Star Wars lore such as Kashyyyk, with the assistance of the Rebel extremist Saw Gerrera (portrayed by Forest Whitaker) and his mentor Cere Junda (portrayed by Debra Wilson).
