How Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Became Official Canon (SPOILER ALERT)

  • Published on Dec 5, 2019
  • (SPOILER ALERT) We sit down with Fallen Order's director, Stig Asmussen, and discuss all the design details of the game and what it took to build a well received Star Wars single player game, what it's like creating for the official Star Wars canon, and whether or not the game should have had multiplayer.

    It would be cool if you could peacefully visit other species and more planets and drink some juice at bars or buy a companian like wookies or ewoks.

    ONCE AGAIN EA does not disappoint BIGEST LOAD OF CRAP !! Story line started so so and the end was such a let down and made no sense. Never buying an EA game again don't even want to smell the company on a game I buy.

    I want Cal kestis to be the main character for the new prequels and him rebuilding the jedi order, passing on what he knows to other Jedi's fighting what's left of the empire or final order

    "This is a power fantasy about becoming a Jedi -- and part of my brain was like: I can take him."
    Not mine. I was playing on Jedi Master and I had almost no health and no stims left after the fight with Trilla. My reaction was the same as Cal's:
    "OK, here goes nothing; goodbye cruel world." lol

    Vader's portrayal in the game is excellent. We've all kinda grown to like him because he's so cool, but here we're reminded that he's terrifying and that he's evil. Trilla's reaction to him is so powerful. It makes it clear that she was ultimately just a victim of the Empire.

    It became official canon because it's great and the fans accept it as canon.
    The Disney trilogy, however -- very debatable. :P

    Am I the only one that thinks Darth Vader’s face part of his helmet looks smaller(shorter) than the top part of his helmet? Like it looks like his helmet takes up way more of his face when he first appears? Just me?

    This game was dull and tedious. Just a vertical corridor slice em up. No living breathing environments like Assassin's Creed, no cities, no bustle. You never feel like it's an open world Star Wars game. It feels more like a simple Star Wars arcade game. And all the backtracking is so tedious. No fast travel.

    Game was great but needs more for a full priced title; a new game plus, more colours and cosmetics for sabers, more costumes, more skill upgrades, the ability to select levels, alternate modes like a battle arena. Image Cal in the inquisitor outfit with a red saber using new split saber moves in a battle arena against a rankor or another Jedi!

    I haven’t seen Altano since 2013 or maybe even 2014 (for no reason other than I got older and adult job/life happened and I didn’t follow games as closely) and holyshit man nice job getting fit. Took me a sec to realize it was you.
    When did this happen?

    This needs a sequel. You can do whatever you like, Respawn, as long as EA won't bother your genius minds.

    How you not gonna ask if they have a sequel in store??

  • Parzival
    Parzival Month ago

    They could easily do a Disney plus series. Pick up right after the game. And since all the characters model their voice actors they can just use them

  • Sir Arnie

    The game still has issues. Mainly with enemies not chasing you after a certain point. Usually at a certain open doorway they won't pursue you. I exploited this by easily mining XP on Zeffo with one of the bigger monsters. I'd easily kill it at the doorway, then rest and repeat.

    EA is big mad. The more successful this game becomes, the more they make themselves look like dumbasses.

    • JamesHLanier

      Yeah, I'm sure they're absolutely crying over the mad stacks they're making off this game.

    Bravo to Respawn! Very pleased with this game. Hopefully they get a chance to make a more rpg type of Star Wars game in the future.

    I want a starwars game that takes place right after order 66 kinda like this one but like right after and your a young padawan that has to train his/her self with no master to follow and the gameplay relays heavily on the force and the lightsaber but your not as big as a storm trooper so if you go 1v1 with one you kinda gotta either be really strategic or stealthy. I would love to have stealth as a big role in the game. Like your not on the same level as these basic storm troopers yet but you can be later in the game and go up against the Sith while developing your own style. Also imagine being a young padawan walking through the streets on a rainy night with these looming storm troopers around every corner and they have like the assasins creed vibe with the curiosity meter. I think something like this would be really cool

    If Darth Vader is surprise was so important why is it in the advertising? I smell something?

    • Chris Lee
      Chris Lee Month ago

      EA handles advertising, and all they care about is money and Vader is very popular. Wasn't Respawn's choice tbf

    Off topic: I cannot play this game without looking at Cal and seeing Archie from Riverdale.

    Cal Kestis is actually a great character, I wonder if he'll fall to the Darkside of the Force though!...That'll be interesting!...

    • Dan Irfan
      Dan Irfan Month ago

      I don’t think he will. If you played the game you’ll know he mastered his fear and became a proper Jedi. It wouldn’t make sense if he turned to the dark side. The Malikos fight was the point to turn kal.

    I think is the first time in my life I'm craving for dlc and customisation. But do it like cd projekt red. Do it awesome. Don't turn in the dark side battlefront vibe

      Ark. Bagas Month ago

      The origin of Rebel Alliance in the new canon is already different from the one we got in TFU. Also, the last time Disney re-introduce an EU character to their canon, it was a pretty downer (poor Thrawn). I don't want the same thing happens with Galen.

    How? Easy. Because this game is just better in all aspects than the new woke trilogy.

  • Lyrai Celestine
    Lyrai Celestine Month ago +3

    I would love to see a sequel of this game. It feels they're ready to move on and travel across the galaxy and now all I want is to see a new adventure from the Mantis group; something on a bigger picture than this game's highly personal storyline.
