Electronic Arts, Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm have announced that “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” has broken the record for the fastest-selling digital launch for a “Star Wars” game in its first two weeks.
The critically acclaimed title is also EA’s top-selling Star Wars title on PC in its initial launch window. Vince Zampella, Head of Respawn, says in a statement: “On behalf of Respawn and EA, we thank everyone for their support of the studio and the team throughout the development and launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Telling a story in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true and the reception from the fans has been incredible.”
In the game, players take the role of Cal Kestis, a former Padawan hiding in plain sight after the Jedi were all but wiped out after Order 66 was executed by The Emperor. When he’s forced on the run, Cal is quickly met by his companions Cere Junda, a former Jedi Knight and Greez, the larger-than-life Latero pilot who flies the crew’s ship known as the Stinger Mantis.
Players navigate and explore diverse planets including the Wookiee homeworld, Kashyyyk, and the never-before-seen planet Zeffo. Cal and his companions are trying to stay one step ahead of the Empire and his new enemy, the Inquisition’s Second Sister, while they unravel a mystery tied to an ancient alien civilization that could help rebuild the Jedi Order.
“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” is now available both digitally and in stores on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC via Origin, Steam, and the Epic Games Store.
