Recently, the action-adventure genre of gaming was changed forever with just one unique game. On November 15, Respawn Entertainment teamed up with EA to release their newest game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Fallen Order is a one-player role-playing game that will be playable on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. The game takes the player on a journey throughout the Star Wars galaxy and more.

With 15 minutes of pure gameplay already released, I am absolutely buzzing over how good this game looks. If I can watch 15 minutes of a 15 to 20-hour game and see how astonishing the game is going to be, I already know that this game will keep me glued to the game until it is 100 percent done. 

The hype train already left the station with experts calling it a “game of the year contender” (PC Mag) and “The Star Wars adventure you’ve been looking for” (Gaming World).”

The internet is buzzing over this game just as much as I am and can’t wait to see what this has to offer compared to 2017’s Star Wars: Battlefront II. With E3 releasing a sample of gameplay a couple of months ago, we were already given a peek of the graphics, combat and a little bit of the storyline. But there is still so much that this game has to unveil. 

The main character is Cal Kestis, a Jedi who survived order 66 and travels throughout the galaxy to escape the grasps of the new Empire. Cal is accompanied by support droid, BD-1. BD helps players throughout the storyline. 

The game is set directly after Emperor Palpatine executed order 66 and all of the Jedi are killed. Other than the couple we know did live. In movie terms, it’s put between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. 

The storyline starts off with Cal trying to escape his platoon of Clone troopers that turned on him on the planet of Kashyyyk. After traveling through the dense forest of the deciduous planet, Cal continues to travel the rest of the galaxy fighting off the new sith inquisitors and breaking free from the Empire’s hands. 

So, Star Wars fans, keep your eyes open because Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is turning heads and keeping people on the edge of their seats all over the world.  I know the game has already grabbed all of my attention and I am ecstatic to see how the game turns out.
