Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PS4 PlayStation 4

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was finally fully unveiled at EA's totally-not-E3 event EA Play. The publisher peeled back the curtain on the first gameplay footage, showing off a promising action adventure in the Star Wars universe, complete with Force powers and lightsaber-centric combat. The famous weapon of the Jedi is incredibly powerful, able to cleave through basically anything. With older games and even the films showing the laser swords slicing through stormtroopers like butter, there's a slightly grim question of whether players will be able to remove the limbs of enemies in this new title. We guess it'd make sense, right?

Well, unfortunately, it sounds like this violent act will be off limits -- at least, for humanoid characters. In an IGN preview of Fallen Order, senior designer Justin Perez said that you won't be dismembering people and humanoids in this game. However, he clarified that you will be able to lop the limbs off non-humanoids and droids.

It's a tricky one, as hardcore fans will want the lightsaber to behave in a "realistic" fashion, but there's definitely a desire to keep the age rating down to allow for more players. At the very least, it seems that your weapon will be able to defeat regular foes in one or two slashes, so it'll definitely feel powerful. Remember Yoda's wise words: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

Were you hoping to be able to slice off the arms and legs of your enemies in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order? If so, are you okay? Take a deep breath in the comments below.
