The E3 trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out and it's giving us those Sekiro vibes
The new gameplay was shown at EA’s E3 2019 show, presented by game director Stig Asmussen, who said the footage takes place about 3 hours into the game on the planet Kashyyyk.

Just from that, it looks like Nathan Drake from Uncharted wielding a Lightsaber, and he’s pulling off Jedi tricks we never saw Luke Skywalker produce.
The protagonist Cal Kestis’ main ability is all about time manipulation, giving him time to either dodge a laser from enemy storm troopers, or to fling it right back at them.
He also uses the force to get around, using it to pull vines closer, blow doors open and even hear the last words of fallen troopers to give him clues on where to go next.
It isn’t just troopers you’ll be facing, as wildlife including fire bugs and freaky spiders will stand in your way. They’re only trying to protect their homes…
As stylish as it all looks, and we’re sure the story is the main driving force for the game, it certainly looks a tad too easy. Stig Asmussen even said that it was an "expert playthrough", which has us sceptical.
It follows the same gameplay mechanics as From Software’s recent hit, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which is all about guarding and posture. That’s difficult, but in this game enemies are defeated in just one hit. Yikes.
Of course, there are harder enemies shown, but even they seem to go down in a couple of hits. Who knows, the director also stated that the player knew all the Lightsaber tricks, so possibly they’re hard to pull off.
Many games are coming to E3, and we’ll keep you up to date with the biggest features coming from the show throughout the week.
