Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is essentially a love letter to longtime fans of this galactic franchise, which means that Respawn’s new game has loads of Star Wars references throughout the experience. While there are some references way too big to ignore, there are a few subtleties that may have been missed. Don’t worry, we gotchu.
Star Wars Easter eggs found in Jedi: Fallen Order
Running through a second playthrough currently to see if there is anything I may have missed, so we’ll update this with new info as we find it, but for now here are the funny oneliners and Easter eggs that Jedi: Fallen Order has to offer dedicated Star Wars fans.
Right off of the bat, players are smacked with a pretty big nod to this series’ canon with a Jedi Holocron. This Holocron reveals Obi-Wan Kenobi talking about the fall of the Jedi Order and the Republic, a message that appears to be during Revenge of the Sith. For those that enjoyed Star Wars: Rebels, this message was also delivered to Kanun Jarrus.
The next one is a little less obvious. In Fallen Order, in the early beginnings of the game, there will be areas the protagonist can’t access until they upgrade their skill tree. One of these blocked off areas is a train’s door that won’t open, at least not by traditional means. For those that know how sneaky devs can be, it was discovered that players can press the open prompt 66 times to hear Darth Sidious commanding the obliteration of the Jedi with Order 66. See? Cool, right? (Thanks, xGarbett)
For those that do it all for the wookie, Kashyyk holds more than chests and our favorite furred companions. The most obvious Easter egg here is looking for Tarfful, a Wookie that was first seen in Revenge of the Sith as a compadre to Yoda after escaping Order 66.
If you’re like me and like to be a little more sneaky with your approach to combat, you may have also heard a few of the stormtroopers saying the voice line “at least we have the high ground,” which is a pretty funny reference to the meme-ified line first delivered by Obi-Wan Kenobi.
And of course there’s the obvious Saw Gerrera appearance on the wookie homeworld as well, but that’s not an Easter egg, that’s just a rooted part of the game. That being said, meeting him does lead to a more hidden reference – especially for those that enjoy CLone Wars. When Cal is tasked with exploring a derelict ship, there’s a secret area that players can find with a hidden transcript from a Clone Trooper talking about strategy.
There’s also a Star Wars: The Last Jedi reference between Cal and the Bounty Unter in the arena. If Cal falls, the Bounty Hunter in question will cheekily ask if he’s the “Last Jedi,” which is a pretty blatant film nod unless we’re just looking too much into that one.
Dathomir has a few as well, especially for Rebels and Clone Wars fans. One of these is a conversation heard between Greez and Cere talking about the betrayal of the Nightsisters seen in the Clone Wars. There is also a dual-bladed lightsaber that fans can find on this (very dangerous) planet that’s an homage to Darth Maul’s iconic look.
After Dathomir is wrapped, there a point when Cal must travel to the Kyber Crystals-filled planet Ilos where he reflects on a previous trip there with Yoda. A small reference, but come on – who doesn’t want to talk about Yoda in this fandom? Especially now with the Mandalorian hype.
There are a few more Easter eggs as well but they include major spoilers, so we’ll update this list once more with our new discoveries as well as when a little more time has passed since the game’s launch.
For now, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
