Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
This looks good..... please, please, please don't screw this up EA. Looks like a game that mixes KOTOR with Force Unleashed... I hope this is a first rate single player action game and I will be really happy with this.
Releases in Nov 2019
🙂 I am thinking about buying a console for this next christmas as well, I truly hope EA doesn't mess this up and really make this a solid single player game with no loot boxes or things we have to pay for unless its dlc/expansions of the story/characters. They could have a homerun here if they do this game right.
I just spent most last night installing KOTOR1 and modding it to play it again. So I hope I can have that sort of experience again.
Here is some basic info on the game and its story
Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand-new Star Wars planet and one of several new locations introduced in the game. Cal is hiding from the Empire in plain sight but is forced to go on the run when he exposes his Force powers. Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, as well as run into some familiar faces, all while being accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1. Cal’s flight from the Empire is made even more dangerous as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi. Assisting the Second Sister are the terrifying Purge Troopers, special Imperial forces trained to seek out Jedi and aid the Inquisitors in their dastardly work.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is designed with gameplay as a top priority in order to deliver the kind of intense Star Wars lightsaber battles that are seen in the films. Brought to life by Respawn, a studio known for high-quality games that are both visually beautiful and technically masterful, players will use their Jedi training to create different melee combinations with an innovative lightsaber combat system and Force abilities. Players will also use traversal and other platforming abilities to strategically overcome opponents and solve puzzles in their path across this galaxy-spanning adventure. Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear, and enemies, while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars.
It definitely is a better Force Unleashed style of game, some improvements can definitely be made, but if the story is good and the progression/customizations for your character is good I would definitely give this a buy. I don't expect it to be a KOTOR game but even if the game comes close it is a step closer back to the star wars games we used to get 10+ years ago 🙂
Saw this and I was a little shocked at the recommend specs for this game:
OS: 64-bit Windows 7/8.1/10
Processor (AMD): Ryzen 7 1700 or Equivalent
Processor (Intel): i7-6700K or Equivalent
Memory: 32 GB 😲
Graphics card (AMD): RX Vega 56 or Equivalent
Graphics card (NVIDIA): GTX 1070 or Equivalent
DirectX: 11 Compatible video card or equivalent
Hard-drive space: 55 GB
Was actually surprised they were supporting Win7 to be honest. Guess maybe I will look into adding 16GB of additional memory to my machine to future proof my system. Didn't think I was going to see 32GB of memory for recommended specs for at least another 1-2yrs. Makes you wonder what the new consoles will have in them since games are getting bigger and more processing hungry as the years go by.
From the reviews I have seen, it looks like it may be the best single player Star Wars game in long time, will defiantly get this but I will be waiting until it's about half the price as I'm not buying any of the so called triple A games at full price.
Agreed. I rarely buy on release day, one because of bugs found in the first month and two I like to see what DLC or mods are released for a game. With some many games I have yet to play on my steam account I am pretty selective now 😉
All of the videos I have watched on reviewing the game the gameplay looks to be fun and the majority of reviewers have been positive. Very good sign, and shows EA hey make a good game with a solid story and mechanics and people will buy and play it. There is no need to microtransaction us to death.
