To huge cheers at Star Wars Celebration, Respawn’s Vince Zampella confirmed upcoming Star Wars recreation Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player story journey with no multiplayer and, crucially, no microtransactions.
Ahead of a panel on the sport on the ongoing Star Wars Celebration occasion in Chicago, Zampella took to the stage to briefly talk about Jedi: Fallen Order.
It’s a “padawan’s journey who survived after Order 66”, Zampella stated. “We’re going to see his journey.”
Then, to a giant cheer: “It’s a single-player story recreation.”
“No multiplayer,” Zampella continued. And, lastly, to a good greater cheer: “No microtransactions. It’s a narrative recreation.”

Confirmation Jedi: Fallen Order is single-player solely and would not have microtransactions comes as one thing of a shock given the sport is revealed by EA, which has centered on multiplayer and microtransactions in recent times. Perhaps the powers that be on the mega-publisher hope to keep away from a repeat of the Star Wars: Battlefront 2 launch catastrophe, which generated mainstream headlines around the globe for its egregious loot packing containers and development methods.
The information can be attention-grabbing within the context of ongoing difficulties at fellow EA-owned studio BioWare, which not too long ago launched the troubled multiplayer-focused shooter looter Anthem. BioWare, which has its roots in single-player, story-driven role-playing video games, is engaged on Dragon Age 4, though what kind the sport finally ends up taking will not be recognized for a while now.
Also attention-grabbing is in contrast to different studios at EA, which construct video games utilizing the divisive Frostbite engine, Respawn is constructing Jedi: Fallen Order utilizing Unreal Engine 4.
