The EA Star Wars Twitter account has teased its upcoming game with Respawn Entertainment, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is expected to be revealed over the weekend.
Star Wars Celebration is happening over this weekend in Chicago, with EA set to show more of the game on Saturday the 13th of April, so Sunday in our time. We don’t know a ton about it yet, but the art looks pretty cool.

There’s no denying it, though, that’s one broke-ass lightsaber. As Polygon points out, the phrase, “don’t stand out,” could refer to the game’s story, which will uncover the journey of a Jedi Padawan who survived the Order 66 massacre from Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
It sounds like you’ll play as the survivor who will have to blend in order to survive. It almost sounds like a stealth-heavy Star Wars game, which could be cool if they can pull it off.
Respawn Entertainment’s latest offering was the extremely popular Apex Legends, but it also made both Titanfall games, so there’s some good shit under its belt. I have faith that they can make this a pearler, assuming EA will take it easy with the microtransactions.
The two companies announced they would be working on a new Star Wars title back in 2016, bringing former God of War director, Stig Asmussen, on board to head up to the project. The action-adventure game will be out at some point during this year’s holiday season.
