Star Wars Game Leak: Jedi Fallen Order details revealed with HUGE 2019 movie and TV news (Pic: DISNEY)
The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order news was one of the small bright sparks of an otherwise lacklustre E3 2018 showing for EA earlier this year.
Which says a lot, because although Respawn studio head Vince Zampella revealed a few details, he was still quite guarded in what he did mention.
That said, we know that the game "takes place during the Dark Times whilst the Jedis are being hunted between episodes 3 and 4."
However, a rather substantial leak on Reddit at the weekend appears to have shed a lot more light on the upcoming Third-person action adventure from the creative team behind Titanfall 1 & 2.
"Recently I was able to go to a Star Wars Marketing Presentation by Disney where they discussed all things Star Wars for 2019," the original Redditor explained.
"It was mostly focused on marketing but they talked about all the different projects and showed a ton of images and concept art."
What sets this leak apart from numerous other people shouting into the void or claiming their uncle works at Nintendo is that some of the info has been verified.
Whilst the Reddit leak produced a natural flurry of cynicism to begin with, the mood changed sharply as soon as the website 'Making Star Wars' came forward to verify some of the (mainly film related) information.
Obviously, this doesn't necessarily mean everything mentioned underneath is confirmed, but this certainly feels way more believable considering a fairly well-respected source of Star Wars info has backed up some of the original posters info. Take a look at the specific portion where the redditor was talking about Jedi Fallen Order.
Fallen Order Videogame: They said this is coming out in November. It takes place about 5 years after Revenge of the Sith and follows the main character whose name is Cal (I forget his last name).
He's was a paduwan that survived the efforts to kill all of the remaining jedi. Not a ton of gameplay info but some of the other story lines are that he has a mentor figure who is a woman named Ceres.
The only other thing I remember is them talking about other characters they would come across from some of the comics. The mentioned the 9th sister and 2nd sister? Something about Inquisitors? I wish I could remember more about this. They showed a ton of artwork.
And if you love all things Star Wars, we've also done you the favour by adding some of the other Star Wars details mentioned in the Reddit leak, which you'll find just below.
Star Wars new Reddit Leak
The overall theme of their marketing will be focused on the legacy characters and really re-introducing them to the younger generation of fans.
Galaxy's Edge: They talked at length about the new theme park attraction and showed a ton of design artwork and even a fly over of the whole park. The most interesting thing here was the new ride featuring the Falcon. The mentioned it will be a 6 person interactive ride where each person plays a role including Pilot, Co-Pilot, manning the turret gun, ship repair, etc. Seemed really cool and immersive. Beyond that it was just a lot of talk about how big the park was and the various characters you would come across as you walk through it. They also mentioned and showed pics of the new hotel as well which looked pretty cool.
Galaxy of Adventures: Looks like this info was just announced, so no real new info here. They said it was 30 or so animated shorts that are 1-2 minutes long. This is key in re-introducing the old characters to the younger fans.
The Mandalorian: They showed a sizzle reel of Jon Favreau talking about how he's excited because they have delved into some of the EU for this series. They also talkied about the different directors as well. The main thing I remember here is that the central plot revolves around the main character and a baby. I guess the Mandalorian encounters a baby on one of his missions that he is supposed to kill, but instead of that, he ends up saving it and a lot of the rest of the story revolves around their growing relationship and his efforts to keep the child safe and protected. They showed a ton of artwork and stills. They spent a decent amount of time talking about the Mandalorian's armor and how it goes through changes and upgrades. They mentioned the large woman character who is some sort of Chief of theirs? I don't remember her name or whether she was a villain or not. They also talked a lot about different planets and terrains but I don't remember too many specific details.
Episode 9: So plot info was pretty much non-existent here. preoccupied only mentioned that it takes place about a year after TLJ. They talked about the culmination of the movie being a battle between Rey and Kylo. The did show a ton or artwork of planets and characters. The said Kylo has his helmet back and that it has been put back together with some kind of red adhesive. It looked kinda cool with the red lines going through it. They also talked about Rey's lightsaber and how it's back and has been reforged. They said the reforge is not shown on screen. There's a new droid. It's name is Dio and it's sort of a sidekick to BB8. It's little and has sort of a cone shaped head, kind of like a megaphone shape if you can picture it. Beyond that it was just a lot of artwork and toy packaging. They mentioned various new planet terrains but the only one I remember was some kind of Jungle planet.
