KOTOR II, New Vegas writer worked on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order


 

One of the biggest names in role-playing games is working on Respawn’s mysterious new Star Wars game.

Chris Avellone is a designer and writer behind beloved games like Planetscape: Torment, Fallout 2, Pillars of Eternity, Divinity: Original Sin II. He held the reins as lead designer and writer on one of the most-acclaimed Star Wars games of all time, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords. Now, it seems he’s lending his talent to Respawn’s latest and most mysterious new game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

“I can’t say 100% b/c of NDAs, but the ones I can say: I just finished up work with Jedi: The Fallen Order,” Avellone wrote in a recent tweet.

That alone doesn’t reveal much, but a quick search of Avellone’s LinkedIn profile shows that he provided story work, story and character reviews, and cinematic scripts for the game over the course of a year. That sounds like a sizable contribution to the project.

We don’t know much about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, since Respawn plans to give it a full unveiling on April 13th during Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. However, it seems to be set shortly after the events of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and follows the story of a Padawan who survived Order 66 and lives in “the time after the fall of the Jedi Order.”

As for that other project that Avellone hinted at in his tweet, fans hope that it may be related to the suspected unveiling of a new Vampire: The Masquerade game—especially since Avellone replied to one fan’s speculation with the clue “Shhhhhhh – also, the undead don’t wink.”

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to release sometime in fall 2019.
