EA Announces Star Wars: Jedi -- Fallen Order, Set Between Episodes III & IV

CREDIT EA

Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella delivered one of the most low-key reveals in E3 history, from a seat in the audience, with a smattering of news about what the developer is working on for Star Wars fans.

According to Zampella, the game takes place during "The Dark Times" and you play as a Jedi.

This announcement comes just a few months after Electronic Arts announced the cancellation of the narrative-focused Star Wars title formally in development at Visceral Games. Unsurprisingly, players will be able to wield lightsabers in the game. Players will control a Jedi in Fallen Order, but no indication was made as to specifically "who" they might be controlling.

For those of you unfamiliar with Respawn, the rights were acquired by EA for a cool $465 past year.

"We promise to pay respect to the Star Wars legacy at all times", game director Stig Asmussen previously said. It's set between Star Wars: Episode III and Episode IV.

When asked if Respawn would have anything more to show us at next year's E3, Zampella enthusiastically replied, "Oh yeah". Star Wars: Fallen Jedi Order will showcase the time in which the Jedi are being hunted down by the evil Empire. When it was first teased back in 2016, all we knew was that it is going to be a third-person action adventure game.
