We get to see the new hero Cal Kestis during the performance capture sessions, played by Shameless star Cameron Monaghan. You can watch the video below.
On top of that, also get to see concept artwork for the new droid BD-1, which stands for Buddy Droid. It can turn into a backpack and one of its primary tools is a flashlight. He is voiced by Star Wars veteran Ben Burtt. Apparently, his interactions with Cal are pretty awesome.
We also see artwork of a new type of troopers, the Purge troopers. They were designed by Respawn Entertainment in collaboration with Lucasfilm and shared with Marvel for the new Darth Vader comic. Their task is specifically to hunt and purge Jedi, and they’re under orders from the new villain, an inquisitor nicknamed the Second Sinister.
Interestingly, during the livestream, a partnership with Xbox was mentioned. For now, it was simply about providing Xbox One X prizes and Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order branded goodies to two members of the audience and one month of Xbox Live Gold to everyone in the audience, and we’ll have to see if something more will come in terms of marketing collaboration.
For now, we’ll have to wait and see.
In the meanwhile, pre-orders for the game are already available, including a Deluxe Edition. Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 15.
