Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gets extended gameplay trailer

EA Play 2019 brought Star Wars fans' first real look at Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order with an extended gameplay trailer.


If you’ve been itching for more details on Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars game, then we’ve got news for you. Today, during EA Play 2019, we got our first in-depth look at the upcoming adventure game with an almost 15-minute gameplay trailer.

You can view the full trailer below if you missed it during the show, or if you just want to check it out again. Some notable features include the ability to force throw items, as well as a somewhat intriguing force freeze power, that appears to freeze, or at least slow time for a short amount of time.

Also, as anyone would expect from a Respawn title, players will be able to run on walls, just as they have in previous games from the studio. Perhaps one of the most exciting bits we learned about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, though, is the fact that the game’s story and characters are all being considered as canon members of the Star Wars universe. It’s a huge deal that Disney and LucasArts are bringing in the story from the game into the main Star Wars universe, and hopefully, it will be a story worth experiencing for Star Wars fans.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to release on November 15, 2019, which means you won’t have long to wait to dive into the latest Star Wars adventure. Fallen Order is set to release on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4, so players will have plenty of ways to enjoy the new story on whatever platform they prefer.

We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more news about the upcoming Star Wars adventure, so be sure to keep your eyes glued to our E3 2019 hub for any new announcements, trailers, or behind-the-scenes interviews we have to share over the coming week. Make sure you also follow Shacknews on Twitter, so you don’t miss a single thing this week at E3.

          Yeah that was really bothersome too. Like wtf was Respwn thinking? First the lame CG trailer then the lame gameplay trailer... Respawning wtf? I meN, Titanfall 2 was a complete surprise so maybe they can still pull it off... *crosses fingers*

            He's right. The basic gameplay loop looks dull and boring. There is no way in fuck I could sit through 10+ hours of that.

            Star Wars is basically done anyway.

              For one I thought he was talking about Respawn at first which I honestly couldn't have asked for a better studio to make the game. Secondly, yeah I know he's right, I've expressed in multiple posts how underwhelming it was. Thirdly, Star Wars is basically done? To you maybe, I doubt Disney is done with Star Wars.

          You know how many times the initial reveal of a game has demonstrated that something's a turd but then the final game came out and was the best thing ever?

          It's somewhere between 0 and 1.

      Just kind of looks so-so. Visually, it looks good, but the gameplay just looks dull and slow, though it also looks like they’re holding back. I don’t know.

      It’s kind of weird how they always make Jedi so powerful and then they’re like, “oh yeah we need villains who can stand up to a Jedi for longer than 2 seconds” and then all of a sudden everyone has anti-lightsaber weapons despite there not being any known Jedi at this time. Whatever.

        In the Apex leak a year before the game was announced, the same guy said "Max exodus on the star wars team. Literally all their leads quit last week. Other than that.... ehhh could be worse." It wasn't smooth sailing for sure.

      I think the demo player makes the game look more boring than it probably is (who stops and pans around for five seconds every encounter?) but it gives me that super on-rails vibe that I'm not at all interested in. Hope it's good, probably not for me.

      The combat looks uninspiring and clunky. I think I saw the exact same moves done in Jedi Knight which came out in what.... 1997?

        X-Wing, TIE Fighter, and Dark Forces 1/2 were the high water marks (for me), where Star Wars games are concerned. I know the KOTOR games are supposed to be amazing, too, but I never played them and am no longer enamored enough with the Star Wars lore to make the attempt.

        It's kind of crazy, because technology has come so far in the last 20 years and there's tons of opportunity for them to explore the universe beyond what the movies have covered. Except.... they really haven't. At all. It's so stale and tired and tropey.

        • reply
          June 8, 2019 9:14 PM

          KOTOR did a good job of that. It was wholly unique and had no connections to the canonical universe.

          June 8, 2019 9:16 PM

          The KOTOR games still hold up really well, and you don't need to be enamored with Star Wars to appreciate them. They're definitely still worth your time.

            June 8, 2019 9:18 PM

            I feel like playing KOTOR now would be depressing, seeing how cool Star Wars once was, knowing what it is now, it'd be disheartening.

      June 8, 2019 6:16 PM

      Super unimpressed. Like others have said, looks dated, generic and dull. I like the wall running and climbing stuff because it's something that Respawn does SUPER well but otherwise I don't know. I keep seeing people say "well if the story is good" but like... there are so many other games out or coming out that have both a good (to great) story and gameplay to match. I'd rather just spend my money on those honestly.

        June 8, 2019 6:23 PM

          I guess that's the other thing, I don't really give a shit about Star Wars anymore so. I was more excited about Respawn making a single player game than anything honestly, it just happened to be Star Wars so I said sure I'll give it a look I guess but then I looked and said "no thanks, I'm good."

          With Death Stranding out a week before, I'd rather put my time and money into that... and hell I'm not even a Kojima fan in the least heh. The only MGS game I ever played was 5 and I enjoyed it because of the wacky open world antics and nothing about the story. At least Stranding looks fucking odd and interesting and hopefully bringing something new to the table.

        • reply
          June 8, 2019 9:00 PM

          People shouldn't be surprised about the story being bad, the real problem here is that the gameplay looks shitty and generic.

          The stories in the EU and Star Wars video games suck, meanwhile there is exactly one great Star Wars movie (TLJ) and one pretty good one (TFA) since 1983. The rest of the filmed content is bad.

          Again, the problem is the gameplay as shown in the demo.

              The plot of True Detective Season One is both complicated and good.

              The plot of MANIAC is both complicated and good.

              The plot of Inception is both complicated and (mostly) good.

              Like, I get it. Relax.

              I also understand that Death Stranding might turn out to be utterly inscrutable and way too up it's own ass.

              But even if that's the case, it still looks WAY more interesting than "We gotta get those wookies outta there!"

              I have less-than-zero interest in those kind of stakes if that's what's on the menu at EA's Star Wars singleplayer game.

            I think this specific point was that Death Stranding come out the week before Fallen Order, hence the comparison to it rather than other heavy story based games.

            June 8, 2019 9:22 PM


            But Death Stranding comes out a mere week prior to this Star Wars game. Gamers looking for an interesting singleplayer game only have so much money for videogames.

            I realize:

            A) Death Stranding might suck
            B) Death Stranding is PS4 exclusive, so non-PS4 owners are not part of this equation.

            I still think that putting this Star Wars game next to Death Stranding does not do it any favors.

          What an odd comparison. Death Stranding isn't anything yet and it's being made by oddball magoo. I have a running bet with someone it'll get less than 90 on Metacritic and I'm going to win the bet.
