Video games are becoming more and more relevant even beyond their own scope, and a relevant piece of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will soon appear in Disney’s popular parks.
Today Disney announced that following a challenge on the Disney Parks Blog, Cal Kestis’ now-iconic lightsaber will be made available at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities’ within the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction late this year.
Considering that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has arguably a better story than any Star Wars movie (or any other media) released in the past several years (basically since The Old Republic), this is rather appropriate.
Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and you can read our review.
Having definitely surpassed EA’s expectations, the publisher’s executives called it the “first title in an entirely new franchise” so we can likely expect to see more Jedi games coming down the line.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s an official description:
“A galaxy-spanning adventure awaits in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new third-person action-adventure title from Respawn Entertainment. This narratively driven, single-player game puts you in the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities and master the art of the iconic lightsaber – all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.
While mastering your abilities, players will engage in cinematically charged lightsaber and Force combat designed to deliver the kind of intense Star Wars lightsaber battles as seen in the films. Players will need to approach enemies strategically, sizing up strengths and weaknesses while cleverly utilizing your Jedi training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path.
Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear and enemies while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars. As part of this authentic Star Wars story, fans will delve into a galaxy recently seized by the Empire. As a Jedi hero-turned-fugitive, players will need to fight for survival while exploring the mysteries of a long-extinct civilization all in an effort to rebuild the remnants of the Jedi Order as the Empire seeks to erase the Jedi completely.”
