Disney has officially announced that a new Star Wars game will be revealed on Saturday 13th April. The game is called Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and is coming from EA / Respawn. Respawn Entertainment is best known for its work on the Titanfall series and the hot new Battle Royale champ Apex Legends.
Outlining the background to the upcoming game, the official Star Wars blog informs us that gamers will meet a Padawan (an apprentice of The Force) who survived Order 66 (an imperial command to exterminate the Jedi). This action adventure title is set in a world after the fall of the Jedi in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. A similar era is the setting for Rogue One and video games like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and its 2010 sequel.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was first announced back in 2016 and is produced as part of EA's long-term agreement with Disney.
