Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, is one of the few surviving games that Electronic Arts hasn’t decided to cancel. And in what can only be considered good news for both gamers and Star Wars fans, developer Respawn Entertainment confirmed that the game will be a single-player story-driven game with no microtransactions.
Vince Zampella, Head of Respawn made the announcement at the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago. The announcement itself was also met with cheers from the attendees. You can check out the very moment in the embedded video, or go to 5:03:33 if it doesn’t take you to the exact moment.
Other developers from EA also confirmed this fact on Twitter. Among them are Respawn Producer Blair Brown and DICE’s Ben Walke.
Zampella also revealed a little more about the story of Jedi Fallen Order. You’ll play as a young padawan, a survivor of Order 66. More information is set to be revealed throughout the course of the Star Wars Celebration event.
