Exactly what the team at Respawn will be showing remains a secret though a teaser from earlier in the week suggests that we'll be seeing a trailer at the very least. "And of course, we'll have a few surprises in store". Specifically, those dark times fallen between the first two Star Wars trilogies, following Order 66 when the Jedi were branded as traitors to the Republic.
"As they finish 'Game of Thrones, ' they're going to segue into 'Star Wars, '" Kennedy told EW.
Per EA and Respawn's official description of Jedi: Fallen Order, players will develop their Force abilities and lightsaber techniques, "explore the ancient mysteries of a long-lost civilization", and attempt to stay "one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors".

Nope! EA was quick to stress on Twitter that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a dedicated single-player experience, and won't have any microtransactions or loot boxes. Expect to explore new planets and meet new characters as well. Leia and Luke Skywalker made appearances as well as Chewbacca and Lando with a shock return of series antagonist, Emperor Palpatine.
"Where we start in Episode 9 is, they're decimated, there isn't much of a Resistance to even lead, so I think what they're trying to do is find allies, find anybody they can that can help them, help their cause - it just feels like it's totally lost", Isaac explained.
The last day on this one [Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker] was a more emotional last day, because we knew it was the last day. "Within this narrative, we've crafted a game with intense, yet thoughtful and fun melee combat using the lightsaber and Force powers, allowing anyone to fulfill their Jedi fantasy", he said.
What will Fallen Order play like?
That's corroborated by a listing on Amazon Italy for Jedi: Fallen Order, which also notes the release date as November 15. Lucasfilm Story Group's Steve Blank was on the panel as well, and it sounds like the group has worked closely with Respawn Entertainment.
