Never forget the Fallen Order ??
Imagine being able to travel at the time of the rise of the Galactic Empire. The world you knew has changed a lot, the Jedi Order has been dissolved thanks to Order 66, the world is watching as the clone troopers spread across the world to fulfill the emperor’s wishes … and you, somewhere in space, are a Jedi who has managed to survive the massacre.
Jedi Star Wars: Fallen Order offers you this fantastic experience incarnating Cal Kestis, a young Padawan who managed to escape Order 66 and hide from the Empire.
But the will of the Force will not let it remain that way for too long, for this fact will be discovered, and the journey of the hero of Kestis begins.
We will have the opportunity to visit and explore the wide universe of Star Wars, of which we only know a small portion thanks to its cinematographic works.
Unreal Engine has been the engine chosen to create this phenomenal adventure. We already know the great works created or that will be created by this engine, such as Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy VII (remake), Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice…
And although the story is not plagued by plot twists, the care that the team has dedicated to this title is obvious. The planets that are within our reach allow us to explore freely, being able to discover them independently in the course of history … waiting for you to have advanced enough in history to reach certain areas. This is what makes it a Metroidvania!
In the trip we will not be alone, because we will be accompanied by a complete crew with which we will travel through the Empire … and we will overcome unimaginable obstacles thanks to BD-1, the nice little droid that will help us inspect unknown areas, hack doors and enemies … even as zip line!
The combat involves several challenges depending on the difficulty chosen among the four available. And, as a curious fact, the Disney/LucasFilm guidelines limited the possibility of dismembering human enemies in combat with our lightsaber, which is one of the most common mechanics seen in video games and also in movies.
The game was released in November 2019 and received excellent reviews. Whether you are a fan of the saga or just discovering it, you can surely enjoy this title that offers you great adventures in such a wide world.
And I hope that in the future we will have many more adventures of this kind.
May the Force be with you!
