Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order release date update: Early Access blow for PS4, Xbox One fans

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order’s release date is tantalisingly close on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The EA action game set in the Star Wars universe has a November 15 release date on all platforms.

Traditionally, however, EA Access and Origin subscribers would have the chance to play a portion of the game a few days early.

In a blow to Star Wars fans and EA Access subscribers, Electronic Arts has decided against a pre-release trial period for Jedi Fallen Order.

That’s according to the EA support page, which explains that the company wants to avoid spoiler situations.

“We’ve opted not to have early access for this title, in part to reduce the risk of story spoilers,” the post reads.

This likely means that reviews will be delayed until close to launch, or maybe even post-release.

Needless to say, EA Access subscribers aren’t happy about the lack of pre-release trial, which definitely seems to be problematic for this kind of single-player game.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order takes place shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

It will revolve around a Padawan who survived extermination at the hands of the Empire.

Based on what we’ve seen so far, Fallen Order combines the adventuring of something like Uncharted with swordplay of a Dark Souls or Sekiro.

Players can swing over large gaps, wall run and use a host of Jedi powers to defeat enemies.

Players will also participate in one-on-one duels with Stormtroopers and other allies of the Empire.

Respawn CEO Vince Zampella also insists that the new Star Wars game will be a single-player experience without microtransactions.

“No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won’t be adding them. A single-player Star Wars story for those of you who are ready to become a Jedi,” Respawn explains.

Perhaps surprisingly, the new Star Wars game won’t have a morality system.

Fans will be able to check out the game for themselves when Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order launches for PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 15.
