Following a lackluster response from fans at E3, developer Respawn Entertainment has released a new 25-minute gameplay video for its upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order title. After fans saw and played a 15-minute demo at E3, many felt the gameplay looked linear, bland and overall underwhelming.

Game director Stig Asmussen (who previously worked on God of War III) has addressed the reactions, alongside the release of the new gameplay video, stating:

“We spent months going back and forth discussing the best strategy to release this content, and ultimately decided for the first-look, it was critical to present a focused 15 minutes of raw, in-game footage highlighting lightsaber gameplay that speaks to the Jedi fantasy in an empowering way. But it should not be mistaken that our combat is overpowered or easy. I promise there is considerable challenge and depth to be found within our combat system. The same can be said about our approach to level design, which is crafted in a non-linear way with heavy influences from games like Metroid, Castlevania, and the Souls series. The game will feature several planets that the player can elect to travel to via starship. On these worlds unique abilities and upgrades can be found that open up new paths across other planets, making retraversal an essential part of the gameplay experience.”

Asmussen explains the reason his team didn’t showcase the new footage is because it was “a lot to describe in 15 minutes of gameplay,” and “getting hands on the full 25-minute experience is best to completely understand it.” He also promised to continue play-testing to ensure gameplay feels good.
