Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is nearly here, and while the game was met with a somewhat tepid response after its E3 debut, previews since have finally started to set the hype train in motion. All signs seem to indicate that Fallen Order is a much bigger game than its marketing has let on, and the more we hear, the more Star Wars fans begin to sit up and take notice.

Set during the gap between Episodes III and IV, Fallen Order follows the journey of fugitive Jedi Cal Kestis as he joins up with a band of rebels and evades the watchful eye of Darth Vader's Inquisitors. His droid companion BD-1 is also there for the ride, and with the game focusing on lightsaber content and traversal first and foremost, it's shaping up to be the experience Star Wars fans have been clamouring for ever since EA took the license in 2013.

Story-focused and littered with references to the expanded canon, Fallen Order also boasts a level of detail that's bound to get hardcore Star Wars fans particularly excited. Whether it's through name-dropping key figures from the franchise's past or in how the game allows players to customise their version of Cal to the most acute detail, Fallen Order is packed to the brim with tiny details that spill into gameplay, its story, and even how it's presented.

It might be a few weeks before it drops, but here are all the details Star Wars fans are going to love.
