It’s been nearly six years now since Disney signed an exclusive deal with Electronic Arts to handle all Star Wars video games. That deal has not gone very well, to say the least. It’s actually been kind of a shitshow. In those six years, only three games have been released—Battlefront, Battlefront II, and a mobile game—despite having multiple teams working on various projects.
Fans have been begging for a good single-player Star Wars game, but EA kept focusing on the money-making multiplayer. They did, to be fair, add a single-player campaign to Battlefront II after outrage over there not being one in the first game. But it was primarily a multiplayer game, and we still haven’t gotten that story-driven, single-player game we’ve been craving.
But now there’s a new hope. Today, a reveal trailer was released for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a story-driven single-player action game which EA promises will have no microtransactions or loot boxes. You can check it out below.
