Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is almost here and if you remember our previous hands-on coverage, you’ll know that we think it has some serious Game of the Year potential. But, if you want to see what other sites are saying, the full reviews are going to be where it’s at – in addition to ours, of course – which means knowing that embargo lift date is key.
When Do Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Reviews Go Live?
Per OpenCritic, the embargo for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order goes live on November 15th, which is launch day. Though a shame that gamers won’t be able to read more in advance before scooping up their copy, the hands-on impressions all over the world from different media sites have been overwhelmingly positive despite the less-than-thrilled reception the game received when the protagonist was first revealed.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order marks the first major Star Wars single-player experience since 2008 (with the exception of Battlefront which offered a single-player narrative, though that wasn’t its focus), and it does this brand proud. Prima Games recently played over 3 hours of the latest Star Wars experience by transforming into the young Jedi in training: Cal Kestis. As the galaxy seeks to eradicate the Jedi, Cal must fight to survive and become the Jedi master he was meant to be.
As far as how Jedi Fallen Order fits into the overall Star Wars universe, the game takes place after Episode III where it was very much the world against the Jedi. Cal is joined by quite a few companions, including Cere and Greez, and that companionship seen throughout my time with the game was a truly organic Star Wars feel. Greez was a hilarious Latero that – from the little time we had with the game – was very much that sidekick that has the witty one-liners and has that lovable grandpa feel.
We have some more deep dives regarding the upcoming Star Wars game, as well as interviews with the game’s lead combat designer and producer, so keep it tuned in here at PrimaGames for more about the latest Respawn title. As for the game itself, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order drops on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 15, 2019.
