Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order by Respawn Entertainment is released today on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The official launch trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been released, along with new gameplay footage available across the web from a portion of the game that was made available to previewers in the games industry.
Feedback from those that have played the game is mostly positive at the moment, with reviewers saying the game is far deeper than initial previews lead them to believe. Even for non-Star Wars fans, Jedi: Fallen Order represents an interesting proposition - a AAA title focusing on a singleplayer story mode, with no micro-transactions or multiplayer mode in stark contrast to the usual offerings from EA who have previously derided these types of games as being unwanted by modern gamers. Success has the potential to spin EA's current ethos on its head and drive more investment to singleplayer story driven gaming.
Check out the trailer below:
Jedi: Fallen Order releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows on 15 November 2019.
Respawn and EA have released an extended cut of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay footage.
The new video adds extra depth to the gameplay demo, revealing a little more of the story driven aspect of the game as well as showing a few sneaky tidbits that we missed out on the first time around.
Jedi: Fallen Order game director Stig Asmussen has responded to criticism that the the gameplay seems to lack depth, saying that the demo footage didn't show the complexity of the combat system as it shows a more focused play-through to better show the narrative and attention to detail that has been put into recreating the Star Wars universe.
He also reiterated the game's inspiration from other titles such as Metroid and Castlevania, which wasn't clear from the demo footage either.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released this November, and is already available to preorder.
Marvel Comics will release a new five issue mini-series this September, that will serve as a prequel to the Respawn Entertainment video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and introduce some of the game's characters.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - Dark Temple has been written by Matthew Rosenberg (Uncanny X-Men and The Punisher) and illustrated by Paolo Villanelli (Vader: Dark Visions) in collaboration with Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm to ensure continuity across the saga.
The story of Jedi: Fallen Order - Dark Temple focuses on Jedi Master Eno Cordova and his padawan Cere Junda, after the Jedi Council sends them on a mission to the planet Ontotho to oversee the excavation of a mysterious temple that has been discovered. Things do not go to plan, and the pair find themselves embroiled in a war between local resistance forces and security troops.
While little has been given away so far, there are a few things that we can infer or speculate upon.
Eno and Cere are sent on the mission by the Jedi Council, so the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith have clearly not happened yet, or at least not at the start of the mini-series.
In the details given so far for Jedi: Fallen Order Cere has been described as a former Jedi Knight, but here she is listed as merely a padawan.
Eno Cordova appears to be a new character. If Cere is due to graduate as a fully fledged Jedi Knight by the end of the mini-series, could Master Cordova's next padawan be Cal Kestis?
Also, this is pure wild speculation here, but am I the only one that sees a resemblance between Eno Cordova and actor Tony Amendola, well known for lending his voice to video game characters?
Ontotho seems to be a brand new planet. Respawn developers have already stated that there is more than one new planet that has been created for Jedi: Fallen Order. The game starts on Bracca, so that's one; could we also be headed to Ontotho during the course of our journey as Cal Kestis?
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - Dark Temple is a comic mini-series and prequel to the Respawn Entertainment video game Jedi: Fallen Order.
It was announced on the official Star Wars website on 11 June 2019.
The comic follows Jedi Master Eno Cordova and his padawan Cere Junda on a mission to the remote planet of Ontotho. There they are tasked with overseeing the excavation of a mysterious temple, but local resistance forces and security troops clash in a war for the fate of the planet.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a video game by Respawn Entertainment.
The game is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and the player will assume the role of a surviving padawan being hunted down during the Jedi purge.
The game was announced at E3 2018 but little information was given between then and the game's debut at Celebration 2019 in April 2019. Shortly before the panel, an EA community manager revealed via Reddit that the game uses Unreal Engine 4, not the Frostbite engine as was originally thought. It was also revealed on Twitter that the game would be single-player only, and would not include microtransactions.
Gameplay footage was revealed at EA Play 2019 on 8 June, with the official trailer debuting at the Xbox E3 Briefing the following day.
