On the planet of Kashyyyk, you are now part of an important mission to help the Wookiee natives.

As Cal Kestis, the protagonist in the forthcoming console game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, players must be prepared to emerge from hiding and wield a lightsaber and the power of the Force to help the galaxy and potentially rebuild the fallen Jedi.

During an exclusive panel at EA Play earlier today, game makers from Respawn — Vince Zampella, head of Respawn, and Stig Asmussen, the game’s director — introduced the world to the first few minutes of real-time game-play of the former Jedi Padawan Cal on a mission to the familiar forest planet.

“Stig and his team have done an amazing job,” Zampella said after the extended peek at gameplay was played. The unedited footage featured Cal traversing the Kashyyyk level with his diminutive and faithful droid companion BD-1. Although uniquely suited to introduce fans to a new cast of characters in an era that’s gone largely unexplored in the past, creators said there will be some familiar places and faces, including guerrilla rebel Saw Gerrera voiced by Forest Whitaker reprising the role, as well as new planets to explore and never-before-seen characters to meet.

Set in the dark times, just after the execution of Order 66 when the majority of the Jedi Order has been destroyed and survivors are being hunted down, Cal has been hiding in plain sight carving out a new life as part of the Scrapper Guild when the game begins. But when a work accident spurs him to use his abilities with the Force to help a friend, he must flee to save himself and evade capture. On the run during this single-person action-adventure game, he must stay one step ahead of the Empire while simultaneously unraveling an ancient mystery that could help restore the Jedi Order. “Totally canon,” Asmussen said, noting that the story was developed closely with Lucasfilm.

When we first met the character at Celebration, fans had just seen Cal emerging from hiding. Now we get our first look at the whole crew of characters aiding Cal in his quest, including the new droid, BD-1, who provides helpful information and assistance. “Story-wise, he’s Cal’s companion,” Asmussen said. A short form of Respawn’s nickname for the character, “Buddy Droid,” BD-1 is voiced by legendary sound designer Ben Burtt, who helped create the sound for iconic droid counterparts including R2-D2 and BB-8. In-game, BD-1 serves many functions including hacking doors, scanning new environments, emitting a flashlight in dark corners and a meter for the character’s health, and can even help heal Cal in battle.

The game also introduces the young Padawan’s ability to run on walls, a Respawn gameplay classic move, which will incorporate the use of the lightsaber to simultaneously deflect blaster bolts, Zampella added. Asmussen said pairing lightsaber skills with Force abilities can lead to almost endless combinations, including the Force slow and a lightsaber throw, but as in other Respawn games, it will be most important to nail the jumps, leap for ledge hangs, and use your powers to navigate the obstacles in your path.
