A brand-new trailer for the upcoming single player action title Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been unveiled by developer Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts. Titled “Cal’s Mission”, the two-minute clip showcases brief snippets of gameplay and story for the sci-fi fantasy title.

The video starts off with Cal Kestis narrowly avoiding the attack of a Second Sister. Saved by what seems like a group of rag-tag rebels, Cal agrees to form an alliance with the group to achieve his mission. As narrated by the Second Sister, it is revealed that Cal is searching for something very close and important to the Empire.

Throughout the trailer, we can see multiple yet-to-be named planets such as an ice planet and a planet with a swampy and marshy environment. The ice planet looks like it could be Hoth, but I could be wrong. Also, looks likely that Fallen Order's travel system will be similar to Mass Effect 2’s travel mechanic, where you can choose what planets you can land on, travel through galaxies, and so on and so forth.

As for creatures, a huge bat is seen during the clip, although it is still unknown whether this animal is a newcomer to the Star Wars lore. Another creature that looks similar to a Rancor can be seen briefly at 1:34.

As for enemies, we can see multiple variations of Stormtroopers such as the Purge Trooper, who is armed with a staff imbued with electricity. Several other Purge Troopers seen in the clip are armed with lasers and twin blades.

Gameplay wise, we still only have Fallen Order's 15-minute E3 showing to pick up from. We can assume that the gameplay will mostly involve hack-and-slash mechanics mixed with platforming and puzzle solving at times (which can be seen multiple times during the trailer). One feature that can either make or break the game is if they added certain role-playing elements to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Mechanics such as looting, crafting, and upgrading weapons. If done correctly, it can improve the game immensely. On the other hand, it can be used as a way to introduce microtransactions in a single-player game.

All things said, the pressure on Respawn Entertainment to reignite the Star Wars video game franchise is huge, but fans will have to wait until November 15 when it releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC to see if the studio can pull it off.
