It seems like the writer of classics such as Planescape Torment has been working on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
While EA’s Star Wars games have been a hot mess all around, we have reason to believe that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will actually be good. One such reason is that it is by Respawn, and Respawn hasn’t actually made a bad game yet. A second reason is that apparently, no less than Chris Avellone, the writer of the original Fallout as well as Planescape Torment, is working on the game.
Or was working on it, rather—he just announced today that he has finished writing his part of the game. Responding to a fan on Twitter, Avellone said that he is just wrapping up his work on the game, also making this the first time we have been told he was working on the game to begin with. But hey, maybe we can expect an actual good story this time!
Whatever Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is, we’ll get to see at the Star Wars Celebration festival, where gameplay footage will be revealed for the very first time.
I can't say 100% b/c of NDAs, but the ones I can say: I just finished up work with Jedi: The Fallen Order – and beyond that, there's another big bomb dropping in a month! Er, I mean, maybe. Ahem.
