Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order might be less violent than you were hoping for thanks to Disney.
As reported by ComicBook, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will allow you to dismember your enemies – but only those that are distinctively non-human-looking, like the giant spiders shown in the E3 2019 gameplay reveal.
If you were hoping to get all chop-happy on the limbs of human enemies with your lightsaber, sorry, it’s not going to happen.
ComicBook reports that this strange decision has to stem from censorship directly by Disney.
An artist for The Clone Wars, Tatyana Drewry Carvin, said of their team’s own censorship: “One of the rules we were given was to always hide the cut in case of decapitation. And never show blood. The burn of the lightsaber is supposed to cauterize it instantly.”
Strangely, previous Star Wars games seem to have no such censorship, which had led to some confusion over the move.
“The Empire won’t stop until every Jedi is purged from the galaxy. As a young Padawan on the run, the odds are against you—but the Force is with you. Discover the Jedi abilities you must master to survive,” says EA’s official description of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Jedi Fallen Order follows a young Padawan in the Dark Times, the period that follows Order 66 (otherwise known as Clone Protocol 66).
If you haven’t brushed up on your Star Wars knowledge recently, Order 66 is a secret group created to outlaw Jedis as traitors to the Galactic Republic.
The game is supposed to be everything that Battlefront wasn’t, offering up a single-player more narrative-driven experience, which is all Star Wars fans have ever wanted.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will release November 11, 2019. Will you be picking this one up?
