RUMOR: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Will not be Open World, Features Pre-Determined Protagonist

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

An alleged leaker on ResetEra just dropped tons of details on Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

Era member Nightlife started posting the information in a thread yesterday. While the tips are juicy to say the least, take everything with a grain of salt before official word this week. Rumors and leaks of this magnitude rarely turn out to be entirely correct, so tread carefully.

Nightlife says the single-player game will be linear, “but not a hallway.” In reference to the art that has garnered lots of fan attention up to this point (see above), Nightlife hints to the image not being too closely related to the final product.

Perhaps most interestingly, Nightlife says Respawn’s game is not an action title and is “much longer than five [hours].” Throughout a few of their posts, the leaker also teases that actor Cameron Monaghan (Gotham, Shameless) may be involved in the project, though Nightlife is less clear on this front. Considering the leaker is saying the game will feature a set protagonist, Monaghan taking on this role is a possibility.

When asked what other games Fallen Order takes inspiration from, the leaker listed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Star Wars: Jedi Knight, and Uncharted. Additionally, Nightlife says the game will likely include some form of wall running.

Again, do not take any of this information as fact. With more official word coming in less than a week, fans will soon get plenty of confirmation regarding the validity of these supposed leaks.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Published

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
