During their E3 conference today amid a very weird low key back and forth conversation in the crowd, EA's Vince Zampella announced Jedi: Fallen Order. He also revealed that players would assume the role of a Jedi. Don't expect it to be a full on, proper announcement as he also mentioned that the studio isn't yet ready to "talk about all of the wonderful things" it has in development. However, it's COD 4 that's most relevant here - its single-player campaign is one of the best examples of how to blend high-action gameplay and story.

Respawn's new game is only one of several Star Wars irons EA has in the fire. Barring any delays, the game sounds like the title many Star Wars fans have been waiting for.

Kevin Durant’s heroics against Cavaliers pull Warriors to brink of championship repeat
Kevin Durant took home his second straight after the Warriors beat the Cavaliers 108-85 in Game 4 at Quicken Loans Arena. His eighth appearance in a row didn't go well either, and now there's uncertainty where the superstar will play next.


What's interesting is that the team at Respawn that's working on this new game is being led by God of War 3 Game Director Stig Asmussen. The game will take place during the era between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, a time when the remaining Jedi in the galaxy are being hunted down by the Empire. This leads us to believe that it will be primarily singleplayer, which is ironic given what happened to Amy Hennig and Visceral Studios' Star Wars game past year. The studio is known for its multiplayer first-person shooters "Titanfall" and "Titanfall 2".
