Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is Specifically a “Jedi Story,” Will Not Let Players Choose the Light or Dark Side

Following its EA Play gameplay reveal, Respawn confirmed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will solely be told as "a Jedi story."

As one of the most anticipated releases of the fall, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order seems like it can deliver on the promise of an engaging single-player Star Wars experience, though like its title implies, it seems that there won’t be a role for the player to choose between the Light and the Dark side of the Force.

Following its 15-minute gameplay demo at EA Play 2019, Respawn Entertainment’s Vince Zampella and Stig Asmussen shared new details on the story elements of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Specifically, the one story aspect that Zampella and Asmussen touched on is that Fallen Order is “a Jedi story,” and that there will not be any decision for the player between the Light and Dark side of the Force.

Given that this has been a notable element of past Star Wars titles, Zampella clarified that the focus of Fallen Order will solely be on the situation that the Jedi are facing after the execution of Order 66, and that Cal will experience his own journey as someone who is in between the state of being a Padawan and a full-fledged Jedi. With the title itself highlighting the Jedi, it would make sense that Fallen Order will be a bit more straightforward in its storytelling, given that the game is telling a more specific story (from a specific character perspective) in the midst of the Star Wars universe.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15, 2019, and you can pre-order the game on Amazon now.
