Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella dropped some big news at E3 Saturday. Respawn and EA showcased a new Star Wars game that will be titled Jedi Fallen Order

Zampella kept the details loose but hinted that gamers could safely assume they will play as a Jedi. “It takes place during the Dark Times when the Jedi are being hunted,” Zampella stated, according to Entertainment Weekly. “So it’s gonna be spectacular.” One of the few details Zampella leaked was that the game would bridge Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is expected to drop in Winter 2019.

One of the other promising things announced at E3 was that Clone Wars content is coming for the popular Battlefront game. "(W)e are going to expand Star Wars Battlefront II with new content from the Clone Wars era, starting this fall with monthly updates," EA Star Wars published. The announcement confirmed that prequel characters Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Anakin Skywalker, and even Count Dooku will enter Star Wars Battlefront II as playable characters.
