There was something in the reveal of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that was quite suggesting that the game was supposed to have stealth mechanics of sorts.
Perhaps, it was the fact that you’re going to be a Jedi on the run, escaping the forces of the Empire and trying to just stay in the shadows for as long as possible.
Anyway, that’s not going to be the case, as confirmed in a recent interview by the game director, Respawn’s Stig Asmussen.
“I’ve heard that from a couple of people, and I can understand why, but no, stealth isn’t something that we’re featuring in the game,” Asmussen told IGN.
“You can jump into a situation and negotiate the battle the way that you want. There’s a lot of choice in how you come across your enemies and take them down. You could potentially, if you wanted, sneak around and not get the AI’s attention.
I guess that’s technically possible. It’s not something we’re openly encouraging. We want the player to have fun and the power fantasy of having a lightsaber and Force powers and stealth doesn’t really fit into that or this game.”
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is releasing on November 15, 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And it’s definitely not a stealth game.
