But Lucasfilm Games will also help expand the roster of Star Wars titles with the announcement of a new story-driven, open-world game from Massive Entertainment, the Sweden-based game studio that falls under Ubisoft, creators of video game franchises such as Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs, Far CryGhost Recon, and The Division.

Jedi Fallen Order Palpatine's plan

In the Star Wars universe, Emperor Palpatine proved himself to be a master of the long game. The prequels showed us that this shriveled old Sith was once as a devious and cunning strategist, someone who was content to manipulate from the shadows until the moment was right to strike and seize power in the galaxy. We’re about to see that character return (somehow) in next month’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but the recently-released video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order may have just added to Palpatine’s legacy by revealing him to be even more of a long-term planner than we thought.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Trailer

So far the video game offerings in the Star Wars universe since Disney bought Lucasfilm have left a lot to be desired. While Star Wars Battlefront was fun for a little while, there’s no real depth to the game and it’s distinctly missing what makes an adventure in a galaxy far, far away so exciting. Hopefully Electronic Arts can change that with a new Jedi fantasy adventure game.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is about a Jedi padawan trying to survive after Order 66 resulted in almost all the Jedi in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. As the creators of the game touted during the Star Wars Celebration, this is entirely a Jedi story. There’s no multiplayer and no micro-transactions. But there is a Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order trailer that shows off our first glimpse at the video game, including the new lead Jedi character, an intimidating new Inquisitor, a cute new droid, an intriguing new lightsaber, and more.

Watch the trailer below, and keep reading for some other details revealed during the game’s Star Wars Celebration panel. Read More »
