The launch trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has released and it gives players a great idea of what to expect ahead of the game’s November launch.

At long last, Star Wars fans are getting a single-player adventure where they play as a Jedi instead of a soldier.

Fallen Order follows the story of a Jedi who survived Order 66 who was then forced to live in the shadows in an effort to survive as the Empire rose to power.

The launch trailer shows off many story details, including numerous fights with inquisitors who have been tasked with tracking down the remaining Jedi and eliminating them.

One thing has become remarkably clear from this trailer and it’s that this will be unlike any Star Wars game we’ve ever received before. Since this is a Respawn title, we can expect a lot of zipline riding and wall-running, something that has been shown off in the past but returns in this trailer.

Fans of the animated series Star Wars Rebels will recognize the inquisitors as they played a big role in the first two seasons of that show.

The main villain in Jedi Fallen Order is the Second Sister, who first appeared in Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith #19, a comic book series written by Charles Soule.

She has already proved to be big threat to Cal Kestis, our hero in this journey, and she will no doubt be a pest throughout the game.

EAJedi Fallen Order is coming very soon.

Since Star Wars has such a fleshed-out universe, we can expect Fallen Order to take us to numerous new planets, and we can count on many familiar faces to show up.

One of those faces you’ll recognize right off the bat is Saw Gerrara who is known for his appearances in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rogue One.

As an added cherry on top, Gerrera’s voice and likeness are both being provided by Forest Whitaker, who played the Rebel leader in Rogue One.

Those looking to get their hands on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order won’t have to wait much longer as the game will be available on November 15 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. 

PC owners are getting an added bonus as they’ll be able to choose between picking the game up on EA’s storefront Origin or they could opt for picking it up on Steam.

Popular YouTuber SomeThingElseYT went viral online after trolling Pokemon fans. The animator jokingly claimed to have discovered the world’s most expensive Trading Card Game collectible, Pikachu Illustrator, in his garage.

The Pokemon TCG was a major part of many 90s kids’ childhoods. No one could have ever guessed that cards once stuffed in cheap binders could one day sell for as much as a sports car. In 2020 though, the pieces of cardboard have now exploded in value.

At the very top of the list of the most expensive is the incredibly rare Pikachu Illustrator which fetched over $233k at auction in July. On November 24, a YouTuber went viral after joking that he found the collectible in his garage. Only, some thought it was actually real.

Pokemon card joke goes viral on Twitter

In 1998, popular Japanese magazine CoroCoro held an art contest and those who won were given a special promo Pokemon card featuring Pikachu holding a pen. While there was over 39 winners, only 10 are known to have survived today.

Due to its rarity, the item very rarely goes up for sale. In July however, a PSA graded 9 surfaced and fetched a whopping $233k auction – which is currently the world record for most expensive individual TCG collectible sold.

On November 24, YouTuber SomeThingElseYT hilariously joked that he found the “useless” card in his garage. “Found this funny Pikachu card in my garage don’t know what to do with it,” he said. After the tweet went viral, he followed up the post and trolled fans who thought it was real. “Why is everyone so obsessed if I got this in 10th grade.”

Despite the tweet clearly being made in jest, many Trading Card Game fans actually thought the post was serious and freaked out. “Adam…That is the most rare card in the world!’ one user replied. Another fan exclaimed, “THAT IS THE MOST RARE POKEMON CARD EVER. DO NOT GET RID OF IT NO MATTER WHAT.” Another follower echoed a similar sentiment and wrote, “BECAUSE IT COULD BE WORTH A FRKIN CRAP TON OF MONEY!!!”

While some fell for the joke, others caught on quickly and were shocked at how many believed the fake story. “On this day millions of wooshes were heard everywhere in the known universe,” one comment read. Another user simply stated, “I love that people don’t understand this was a joke. Makes this post much better.”

Besides clearly being sarcasm, it also only took a few seconds using Google to figure out that the image has been posted on Reddit and numerous other websites many times previously.

With Pokemon card fever reaching a fever pitch in 2020, fans around the world have been digging through their old collections. Just don’t expect to have an item where only 10 of them exist.
