CEO Vince Zampella of Respawn Entertainment has confirmed that their new Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order game won’t have any microtransactions.
This is exactly what players wanted to hear- as not having this kind of business model eliminates a lot of corporate greed and forced them to put in as much effort as possible to the game. Zampelle confirmed that the game will be free of such measures on the live stream of his Star Wars celebration, which took place in Chicago. This was the reveal on Day 1.
Zampella goes on stage to announce that:
“It’s a single-player story with no multiplayer and no microtransactions. It’s a story game.”
During this stream, various cast members of the upcoming Star Wars Ep. IX: Rise of Skywalker was posted for everyone to see. This video shows what Zampella had to say during the stream:
He didn’t say much, but at least fans know that the game won’t be based on microstrasstions. We also got to see some cool artwork and other various deets confirmed by the development team, such as:
The game will be built on the Unreal Engine
Storyline takes place during the “Dark Times” after the execution of Order 66 by Palpatine from Ep. IIII
Six narrative designs will be working together eon the game, including Aaron Contreras from Mafia 3 and Chris Avellone from Fallout: NV
Keep in mind that the game will be published by EA, who has stated that they’re not interested in single-player games or games where they basically can’t rake in more cash. Respawn is currently still able to make the game even though EA has made these statements, when even companies like BioWare have been stopped. This could be perhaps of their deal with disney, forcing that the game can be single-player.
Regardless, this is exciting news for fans. We should expect some decent quality out of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order.
