Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn's single-player Star Wars game, had its gameplay revealed to the public today so players now have a clear idea of what to expect with the new title.

Since EA acquired the Star Wars license, single-player Star Wars games pretty much stopped coming out. Outside of mobile games, an MMO and two Star Wars Battlefront titles, there hasn't been a whole lot coming from the license.

That is changing with Fallen Order, which gives players a glimpse into the life of a Jedi after Order 66 and the Jedi Purge. The game takes between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, meaning it's a dangerous time to be a Jedi.

Fans first got a look at the reveal trailer at Star Wars Celebration 2019 but there wasn't any gameplay revealed there. Instead, we got a glimpse at what's going on with the story, but not a whole lot else.

During EA Play 2019, the curtain was pulled back and players got to look at how the game will play and whether they'll like it or not.

While Respawn is currently best known for their work on Titanfall series and Apex Legends, Fallen Order shows they can still make a single-player title work.

EA Play gave fans a look at 15 minutes of gameplay so they can get a true idea of what to expect with the game. The gameplay took place about three hours into the game on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk.

The gameplay revealed Saw Gerrara was involved with the story in the game, which is a character fans would be able to recognize from The Clone Wars and Rebels animated shows along with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

One thing that stood out right away is the fluid lightsaber combat along with the plethora of force abilities available to the character. 

Traversing the environment was similar to many other games of the genre whether it was swinging from vines or climbing up walls. Respawn did manage to get their famed wall running into Fallen Order, however.
