Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be introducing a brand new planet to the Star Wars universe, which is Bracca.
In an interview with Game Informer, Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm have provided us with more details about what it is like.
“It’s a planet in the mid-rim, and there’s this scrapper guild here. It’s a ship-building and ship-breaking world,” said Steve Blank, Lucasfilm’s director of franchise content and strategy.
“You see a giant machine that is cutting through a ship in the trailer. That monster that you see is eating the debris, like a giant garbage disposal.
(…) As you see Cal in that one scene where he’s eating in that space with the lights, there are obviously places for the people there too.”
Game director Stig Asmussen added more on that topic, especially when it comes to the extreme conditions we’ll meet throughout the game.
“We decided to make a story that’s more “man versus wild.” That allowed us range to go to different places and explore different places.
It’s not just Cal versus the environment, but also Cal versus the elements. To a certain extent, the Empire versus the elements as well. (…) It’s kind of a theme that continues through the game.”
As rumored, Jedi: Fallen Order will be featuring Cameron Monaghan, from TV show Gotham, as protagonist Cal Kestis.
Asmussen shared that Monaghan is doing more than just motion capture or providing the character with his face and body.
“He completely understands the character, and probably understands him better than anybody. He can challenge people on the writing team because he’s living the role,” he said.
“He can read the script, and look at the scene and say “Hey, wait a minute. Cal wouldn’t do this. I think it will work better if we do it this way.” He’s more aligned with Cal than anyone.”
We’ve already reported about environments in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and, from the looks of it, the game is thought to be a bit more than a simple linear action game.
