Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launch trailer does the movies justice

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out November 15 and could be the cinematic experience we're looking for.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's launch trailer heralds the game's November 15 release and a return to cinematic form for the series on games consoles.

Going back over the general story beats we already know from previous trailers, the SWJ:FO [we're not typing it out every single time] launch trailer lays out main protag Cal's difficult position as a Jedi in hiding after the fall of the republic, trying to go unnoticed while being able to pick up a spaceship with his mind.

But the real star of the show is the editing on this trailer. A great cinematic score (presumably by the game's composers Gordy Haab and Stephen Barton) is punctuated at every beat with well-timed cuts and jumps with the explosive action on screen. It's truly reminiscent of the silver screen beginnings of this universe, something gamers have been waiting a long time to see in their preferred medium.

The game will also be the first EA game in a long while to be sold on Steam, thanks to a partnership reached today between Valve and EA to put the publishers games back on the PC platform, as well as allowing EA Access subscribers to get their games there. Swoojfo [we're aware that's more letters than SWJ:FO but that's how it sounds in our heads] will be the first title to arrive, followed by single-player games like The Sims 4 and Unravel Two, with multiplayer games like Apex Legends and Fifa 20 following next year.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases on November 15, and if the game looks as good as this launch trailer then we'll be happy padawans.
