Fallen Order, which is set to release on November 15 across numerous platforms, was given a 14-minute gameplay demo in front of a crowd of enthusiasts who are hoping that Respawn Entertainment, the game's developer, will deliver on the upcoming title.
There are plenty of deep-cut Star Wars references featured in the gameplay demo, including a sequence in which Cal is battling snarling Wyyyschokk, giant Kashyykian spiders that first featured in the Jedi Academy series, before being brought into contemporary canon in The Force Awakens novelization.

In the gameplay demo we routinely see the player force pull enemies and strike them down with a brutal lightsaber blow.
Saw Gerrera from Rogue One, played by Forest Whitaker, was shown in the footage to be assisting Cal, along with Kashyyk - the Wookie homeland, being a starter location.
Traversing the environment was similar to many other games of the genre whether it was swinging from vines or climbing up walls.
Fallen Order is due to play quite a big part in next week's E3 show, appearing in EA PLAY and on Microsoft's stage. This is the first single-player action Star Wars game in many years, with the most recent being The Force Unleashed. "Discover the Jedi abilities you must master to survive".
