Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition Details “Director’s Cut Content”

Published

on

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:

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 FacebookTwitter, and YouTube. You can also join the discussion in our community Discord server.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
