EA Play E3 2019 Conference
Welcome to the first draft of what happened today during EA Play E3 2019!! Below are my notes were taken during the conference. I will be cleaning these up as I got along, adding trailers and the like.
Here. We. Go.
Lots of news coming at EA Play E3 2019 with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Apex Legends, Battlefield V, FIFA 20, Madden 20, Sims 4, plus some surprises!
Star Was Jedi: Fallen Order
15 Minutes of brand new gameplay of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order! This will be uncut and include brand new info!
The demo is starting! We will be on the planet Kashyyyk.
Currently playing is Alpha so there will be some bugs, unfinished graphics and some possible jank. Wall running looks amazing, graphics look like Alpha mode lol. So smooth and bad. Or maybe it’s more cartoony? BD-1 is a cool bot and seems to be able to give you health packs at any time.
This seems to be quite far into the game. No HUD showed. Lots of awesome force and lightsaber action, Force Stasis.
HOLY CRAP, HE JUST CUT THAT GUY IN HALF.
Combat looks CRAZY FUN.
Lots of parries and counters. Little bot healed him. Stormtroopers are fighting off giant lightning bugs with flamethrowers. He takes down the flame troopers
Stormtroopers keep righting offbugs of Kasshyyk. Lots of bugs and spiders. They start attacking you after
AH DAMN, GIANT SPIDER OUT OF NOWHERE. You fight it off and kill it.
OMG, That was amazing! You stop time grab a trooper and put him in front of the laser blast.
Lots of really well done saber blasts blocks. Stormtroopers with staff fighting you looks really good and fun.
You Find Wookiees in cages. Alpha graphics of them look so bad, but yes as I explained above, this is alpha footage. Many people in the Twitch chat are complaining that the graphics look horrible but this is alpha gameplay, more than likely 6 months to a year old.
BD-1 is there actually on stage interacting to what is happening on the panel. Benn Hurr is the voice and sound design. He did the original trilogy sounds.
100% canon. Possible Watto cameo in the game. #Watto2019.
