We get to see Respawn’s Star Wars game in action next month.
When Respawn announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at E3 last year, they took the whole “announce a game without footage” trend that’s been going around lately to the next level. Unlike Square Enix or Sony, who show CG trailers for games that are years from release, or Bethesda, who show animated logos for games that are years from release, or Nintendo, who show static logos for games that are years from release, Respawn’s Vince Zampella showed nothing. He just blandly said the name into the mic.
Which is also the only official information we’ve had on the game so far. We haven’t even seen an official logo, let alone any gameplay footage, or even CG trailer. But that will change in April, true to EA’s earlier promise, at the Star Wars Celebration. This is because EA confirmed on Twitter today that we will get to see the game in action for the very first time on April 13 at the event.
I have full faith his will be the first great Star Wars game under EA since they got the exclusive license—Respawn’s formidable game design skills are not to be underestimated.
