EA’s new Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is sure to appear on a few holiday wish-lists this year, but the publisher is already celebrating the game’s success. Electronic Arts announced that the new title is the fastest-selling digital launch for a Star Wars game in its first two weeks, and the game is EA’s top-selling Star Wars title on PC in its initial launch window. The game is also the highest-rated Star Wars game of this console generation, a big win after EA’s troubled Star Wars: Battlefront 2 debut.
“On behalf of Respawn and EA, we thank everyone for their support of the studio and the team throughout the development and launch of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Telling a story in the Star Wars galaxy is a dream come true and the reception from the fans has been incredible,” said Vince Zampella, Head of Respawn. “With the launch of the game, the debut of The Mandalorian and the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan!”
“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order demonstrates the amazing potential for original storytelling in Star Wars games,” said Sean Shoptaw, SVP, Games and Interactive Experiences, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. “The close collaboration between Respawn and Lucasfilm is a perfect example of how we can deliver an experience for fans that is authentic to the stories and worlds they love, while also being an incredibly fun and innovative game. With the fantastic reception and launch so far, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has proven to be the must-play game this Holiday.”
You can find the game at online retailers, bundled with consoles or sold separately, and right here on Amazon. The new Star Wars game launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, players take on the role of Cal Kestis, a former Padawan trying to survive after Order 66 was executed by the Emperor. Cal meets up with Cere Junda, a former Jedi Knight played by Debra Wilson, and Greez, the Latero pilot voiced by Daniel Roebuck, who flies the crew’s ship known as the Stinger Mantis. Cal’s droid is BD-1, which helps players navigate and explore diverse planets, including the Wookiee homeworld, Kashyyyk, and the never-before-seen planet Zeffo. Cal and his companions are trying to stay one step ahead of the Empire and his new enemy, the Inquisition’s Second Sister, while they unravel a mystery tied to an ancient alien civilization that could help rebuild the Jedi Order.
