Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Leaks Make Their Way Into The Internet

As with every leak and rumor, take these with a huge grain of salt.

Even before Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order’s trailer was officially released this weekend during the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago, a handful of supposed unconfirmed news or leaks have made their way onto the internet. A few have been substantiated due to the similarities between what was already confirmed (the protagonist’s name, Cal, was leaked before the trailer’s release), and this may somehow reinforce the idea that some of these leaks are true. However, like everything else on the internet, take these leaks with the biggest grain of salt and that they all need to be verified in order to be taken as actual truth.

Below, we’ve compiled some of the bigger leaks and rumors pertaining to Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. This may give you some idea of what to expect from the game before it’s even released.

God-of-War-esque gameplay with lightsabers

Following Stig Asmussen’s entry into Respawn Entertainment and the subsequent news that Respawn will be responsible for a new Star Wars game, a lot of fans have theorized that Fallen Order’s melee lightsaber battles will be akin to something like God of War, which Asmussen previously worked on. This sounds quite good to be honest, and it would be a breath of fresh air, seeing as in the couple of years that EA has acquired the Star Wars license, it has only made two actual games of note: Battlefront and Battlefront 2.

A crossover with Rebels

This one is not far-fetched, considering Rebels is also set in roughly the same timeline. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order takes place after Revenge of the Sith, in which the padawan protagonist Cal Kestis evades the Jedi purge following Order 66 and documents his attempts to survive. The animated series Rebels, meanwhile, tells the story of the fledgling Rebel Alliance between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. There is a lot of potential for existing characters within the show to make their way to the game, since Disney is starting to connect all of its existing Star Wars media into a single universe that connects all of its stories.

Visceral’s Project ‘Ragtag’ assets may very well be used

EA made the headlines back in 2017 after the announcement that the company was shutting down Visceral Studios, best known for its Dead Space series, and would be scrapping Project ‘Ragtag’, a Star Wars game Visceral was working on. This move has drawn a lot of ire from Star Wars fans, especially after seeing some in-game footage that looks remarkably well done and captures the distinct feel of Star Wars.

While Visceral and their cancelled game probably won’t see the light of day anymore, a general manager from Motive Studios, another EA subsidiary, revealed that EA is planning to recycle the assets of the unfinished game and reworking it for another Star Wars game, which happened to be Fallen Order.

Expect more news and information to drop as Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order nears its release date, which has been confirmed across all platforms for November 15, 2019.
