At E3, EA and Respawn revealed 13 minutes of Star Wars: Fallen Order Jedi gameplay. The reaction of the players was mixed, while many journalists participated in a longer and more meaningful demonstration.
If the reservations were issued, however, Respawn publishes an extended version of this demo today, which is 13 to 25 minutes. The opportunity to present other sequences and present the game from a wider angle. Wanting to explain this choice, the director of the game, Stig Asmussen, published a post on his blog:
We spent months discussing the best strategy for publishing that content. Finally we decided to give an overview at first sight. It was essential to present 15 minutes of raw scenes in the game, highlighting the game with the lightsaber (…) I promise that our combat system presents a considerable challenge and depth. The same can be said of our approach to level design, designed non-linearly with heavy influences from games like Metroid, Castlevania and the Souls series. (There was) a lot to describe in 15 minutes of play, it is better to be able to fully understand the experience of 25 minutes.
Then, the 13-minute demonstration was focused on the use of the lightsaberwhile we show more in commitments, but with the possibility of explaining everything.
