According to a multitude of storefronts, the much-anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will feature some form of “director’s cut content.”
Fallen Order, which is a single-player exclusive experience, has very much been marketed as a reaction against EA’s loot-box-centric design. News on social media circulated that the game would not feature any loot boxes, microtransactions, nor will they be added at a later date:
No microtransactions. No loot boxes. And no, we won't be adding them. A single-player Star Wars story for those of you who are ready to become a Jedi. https://t.co/kTheWVBjJc

However, with the games as a service model embraced at EA, Fallen Order will still contain paid content, as confirmed by the announcement of the Deluxe Edition. The below information comes from an official newsletter sent out by Sony Entertainment, whose information is parroted on the Sony and Microsoft storefronts. The edition, priced at GBP £69.99, features:
- Director’s Cut content
- Extra cosmetic equipment, including companion droid and lightsabre modifications.
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order theme.
Whether the above plan will be expanded upon remains to be seen. The Director’s Cut content feature “behind-the-scenes features and content” as well as “unique [cosmetics].”
Either way, EA looks to continue down its service path, but at least Fallen Order won’t contain any slot reels. For all the latest Fallen Order news be sure to bookmark OnlySP and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. You can also join the discussion in our community Discord server.
