Chris Avellone, the prolific video-game writer, has contributed to the game.
This will be the first "proper" singleplayer Star Wars game we've had since Activision and LucasArts launched Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II back in 2010. Also, be sure to check out the first poster for the game from EA, as well as our photos from the panel, below.
Fallen Order hits PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 15, 2019.
Fallen Order follows the story of Padawan Cal Kestis who's on the run as he's hunted by the Empire.
Star Wars actor Ian McDiarmid had the ideal response to his surprise appearance as Emperor Palpatine in the trailer for the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker film. Then in February 2018, Benioff and Weiss were also announced to be developing a new series of "Star Wars" films that would be separate from both the Skywalker saga and Johnson's films.
Along with a teaser image displaying the lightsaber from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, multiple parts of the trailer also show the protagonist, Cal, wielding the lightsaber, with one one specific moment putting full emphasis on it by showing Cal study the lightsaber.

She's joined by new Purge Troopers, Inquisitorium soldiers specially-trained to fight and kill Jedi.
Here's hoping more than a village will be there to play the game when it arrives.
Respawn CEO, Vince Zampella, reiterated that this is a single-player, narrative-driven game featuring no multiplayer and no microtransactions, much to the excitement the audience at the Celebration Stage. From the look of things, however, the actor isn't quite done with the role and may be causing some trouble in the Star Wars universe one last time.
The end of Force Awakens, we felt like 'Oh my god, we did it.' But we still didn't quite know what it would even look like, in a way.
