For the game lovers and the freaky fans of Star wars. A video game force awakens.
Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella and game developer Stig Asmussen give the latest details about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
There’s been some roughness in the Star Wars franchise recently and that’s a good thing.
First, there was the arrival of “The Mandalorian” on the Disney+ streaming service. Which became operational earlier this week. Now, there’s “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order,” a new single-player video game that fleshes out Lucasfilm’s space opera.
All this action comes ahead of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” (in theaters Dec. 20), the ninth and last film in that saga.
But these two recent entries focus on the past. “The Mandalorian” takes place after about five years after Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo and the rebels overthrew the Empire in 1983’s “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.”
“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” (out now for $59.99, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, for ages 13-up). Goes back a bit further in the timeline to five years after the events of “Revenge of the Sith.” As detailed in that film, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (who was actually Darth Sidious and would be come Emperor Palpatine) issued Order 66, a death sentence for all Jedi.
