Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Shows Off Some Brand New Force Moves

By Ethan Anderson,
EA Play kicked off with the first ever look at gameplay for the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The gameplay reveal showed off lightsaber combat and various Force techniques on the Wookie planet, Kashyyyk. Along with the combat, the reveal also showcases some Force-assisted traversal, and some of the uses for Cal's droid companion. There's even a brand new force move — Slow. This enables Cal to slow time and manipulate objects and characters to his advantage. In one impressive moment, Cal manages to slow time enough to force-pull and incapacitate a stormtrooper with his own blaster shot. Although the video looks like it's full of scripted single-button finishers.

Cal's droid is called BD-1, short for Buddy One — as clear a sign that this is a game from Titanfall developers as the wall-running that frequently crops up in the demo. The explorer droid can pick up environmental storytelling cues to flesh out the lore of the game — this is a canonical adventure after all, with Rogue One characters turning up in Cal's story. The droid will also provide healing and logistical support, such as powering machinery and unlocking doors.

You can pre-order Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order here, and become a Jedi yourself once the game launches on November 15, 2019. You can also catch more Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order content on the Xbox stage tomorrow — check our E3 Schedule for all the details.
