We’ve had some light shed on Respawn’s Star Wars game, Jedi Fallen Order thank’s to a rumour from a Reddit user who got the chance to attend a recent Star Wars Marketing Presentation.
A Reddit user named Xyzsvtabc, who recently attended athe event by Disney, says they were shown a whole host of new art and fed many details about the biggest Star Wars projects coming up in 2019.
Their post contains major reveals for Episode 9 (including information about Rey and Kylo Ren), The Mandalorian series from Jon Favreau, and Respawn’s Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. According to the user, the game is scheduled for release November 2019, with the story taking place five years after the events of Revenge of the Sith.
Respawn previously announced that Jedi Fallen Order’s story is set in the dark times, which is agreed as the period between Episodes 3 and 4. The game was also announced as a holiday 2019 title, so it all lines up so far.
Jedi Fallen Order’s main character is a Padawan (Jedi apprentice) named Cal whi is reported to have survived Order 66, and has a female mentor named Ceres.
The presentation apparently also referenced the Imperial Inquisitors, Ninth Sister, and other characters from the extended universe comics and lore. By their own admission, the Reddit user says they couldn’t remember all the details.
It’s possible the story involves Ninth Sister, and/or Nightsisters. In any case, they were used to hunt down the remaining Jedi after the events of Revenge of the Sith.
More interesting than the leak itself, however, is that it may not just be another internet rumour. Xyzsvtabc’s other notes about Episode 9, and The Mandalorian were independently verified by MakingStarWars, a website dedicated to Star Wars leaks and news.
The site has a generally solid track record when it comes to verifying, or publishing, leaks. That said, it did miss the mark on a few early details about DICE’s first Star Wars: Battlefront – though the info could have been accurate at the time.
Although MakingStarWars doesn’t touch on the Jedi Fallen Order rumour specifically, it’s at least an indication that the information in the Reddit post is not completely made up.
It’s important to remember that these are still just rumours, but it’s nice to get some information about the game to stoke your excitement.
