Electronic Arts and developer Respawn Entertainment revealed at EA Play new details about their previously-announced Star Wars game, including its name and release date: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, set to arrive during the 2019 holiday season.
Respawn’s Vince Zampella revealed that the game will be a single-player, action-adventure title that tells a new story set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Zampella confirmed that Respawn is collaborating very closely with Lucasfilm on the project. You can find out more at the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order official site.
Electronic Arts also announced that additional Clone Wars-era content is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II. Starting this fall, Hero characters including Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sith Lord Count Dooku, and General Grievous will enter the game, along with a new location: Geonosis, one of the prequel trilogy’s most iconic worlds and the site of the first Clone Wars battle. Time to decide if you’re with the Republic or Separatists…
EA revealed that a new game mode is in the works for release later this year as well. It will be a linear, larger-scale mode in which players battle for control of objectives around the map. And ahead of all these great additions, Hero Starfighters, a new Hero and Villains mode with Starfighters lands in Star Wars Battlefront II this July.
Players are currently enjoying Star Wars Battlefront II‘s Han Solo Season, which continues June 12 with content inspired by Solo: A Star Wars Story.
