Star Wars Game Jedi: Fallen Order to Be Officially Revealed April 13th

If you've been clamoring, silently or not so silently, for a new story-driven Star Wars game, you're in luck. The Respawn-developed Star Wars game Jedi: Fallen Order is set for a reveal on April 13th. That doesn't mean the game is launching anywhere close to that slice of time, mind you; it's likely EA is just starting up the hype machine for the game, as it usually does. A fall release is expected, nonetheless, which means that Respawn was working in two very disparate game experiences a the same time - this really should speak to that studios' ingenuity.

Respawn has wrapped up their silent, ninja-like development of Apex Legends to a full game release, and is on cruise mode when it comes to the games' support. Provided they keep adding features - and raking in the money from all that hard work in what has quickly become one of the video game hits of recent times - the company's efforts can now certainly be focused solely on the Star Wars story-driven game. The announcement came straight from EA's Star Wars Twitter account, and the reveal is set for the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Some tidbits about the games' setting are delivered, such as that you're a "Padawan who survives Order 66" and you explore "the universe in a time after the fall of the Jedi Order". Whether "exploring the universe" is overly enthusiastic jargon for an on-rails experience or code for a somewhat emergent/open world game system remains to be seen, but it's Star Wars. The budget is big, and Respawn has developed great games.

Titanfalls were both rather universally though of as good games - including single-player parts - and Apex Legends is fairly liked and successful. We can be at least a bit optimistic here ;)

I was wondering if this will be like battlefront.. hopefully the mechanics change if so... visually it was pretty. Apex legends looks like it got the DLSS treatment and is hazy. :(

Now that Respawn has wrapped up their silent, ninja-like development of Apex Legends to a full game release and is on cruise mode when it comes to the games' support and addded features just racking in the money from all that hard work in what has quickly become one of the video game hits of recent times, efforts can certainly be focused solely on the Star Wars story-driven game.
Longest. Sentence. Ever. :p

Here's how I think. If EA is involved in any way, I'm not interested.

The problem with Star Wars games is.......Star Wars. In general when a Developer sets out to make a Star Wars game they assume that they don't have to make the full effort because the Star Wars name will be enough to sell even a mediocre game. There are a lot of people that love Star Wars and they want more of it. Look at some of the newer Star Wars movies.

The last Star Wars game that I played was KOTOR in 2003 and in it's day it was really good.

But sometimes you get a little nugget like TIE Fighter or Kotor instead. But that was before everything was a console port and it didn't have to be a MMO.
