Respawn Entertainment's Vince Zampella teased Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during Electronic Arts' E3 2018 press conference Saturday, announcing that it "takes place during the dark times" in a period where "the Jedi are being hunted."
A website for the game also popped up Saturday, saying the story will involve a "surviving Padawan" just after the events of Revenge of the Sith. The game is described as a single-player, action-adventure title in the StarWars.com announcement.
Zampella said the game is due for holiday 2019 and will let players hold a lightsaber.
