A new trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was revealed during today’s Force Friday stream.
The new trailer, dubbed “Cal’s Mission,” focuses on the upcoming game’s story. It features protagonist Cal Kestis, who looks for all the world like Archie Andrews with a lightsaber, narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Second Sister. Cal’s rescuers are a human woman and a frog-like alien with a tonsure haircut, and they take the opportunity of having one of the last surviving Jedi on their ship to recruit him into their anti-Empire mission.
According to the Second Sister, Cal and his new companions are “searching for something very precious to the Empire.”
On his quest, Cal will have to battle specialized anti-Jedi Purge Troopers, narrowly escape some crumbling ruins, and solve all manner of ancient puzzles. He’ll also have to square off against the Second Sister for a proper lightsaber duel.
Jedi: Fallen Order looks to be big on Uncharted-style scripted spectacle, but director Stig Asmussen has described the game as being closer in spirit to the exploration-heavy Bloodborne. We get to see some of that in the new trailer, as Cal has to explore a number of planets and might have a choice of the order in which they are visited.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes out Nov. 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
