According to the panel, Fallen Order is about Cal Kestis—one of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order after the purge of Order 66—is now a Padawan on the run. The game will be single player and is an action melee game with lightsaber and force powers.
The developers say the combat will be "thoughtful", which means you will have to size up your enemy. You will also have a backpack companion droid who is also your best friend.
Other panel reveals include an appearance by what appears to be game’s antagonist, the black-masked Second Sister Inquisitor. She’s joined by new Purge Troopers, Inquisitorium soldiers specially-trained to fight and kill Jedi.
Aside from the panel reveal, insider leaks have pointed to the gameplay being similar to Dark Souls, but with parrying like in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Respawn Entertainment has put a lot of time and effort into ensuring that players feel like an actual Jedi. Players will travel from planet to planet in semi open-world fashion.
