Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment will unveil their new Star Wars action-adventure game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, at Star Wars Celebration this Saturday, April 13. The reveal will be livestreamed on EA’s Star Wars Twitch channel at 1:30 p.m. CDT, according to a tweet from the official Star Wars Twitter account.
EA and Respawn started teasing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on Tuesday, tweeting out a piece of artwork that included what appears to be a visibly damaged lightsaber resting upon a stone surface. A pair of circular runes are carved into the rock beneath that lightsaber. That tease also includes a warning: “Don’t stand out.”
That phrase likely ties into the story of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which follows a Jedi student, known as a Padawan, who survived the massacre known as Order 66. As seen in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, Order 66 decreed all Jedi traitors to the Galactic Republic and subjected them to execution by the Republic’s army of Clone Troopers. The Padawan at the center of Fallen Order will likely have to keep their identity secret in order to survive.
EA and Respawn announced their Star Wars action game in 2016, revealing that former God of War director Stig Asmussen was helming the third-person action-adventure project. The game is part of EA’s longterm exclusive arrangement with Disney and Lucasfilm to developer Star Wars games.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is slated for release during the holiday quarter of 2019.
