EA and Respawn Entertainment have released a lengthy new gameplay demo video for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. You can check out the 25-minute video below for the game, which is set to release on November 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

In addition to the video, game director Stig Asmussen wrote an open letter to the community discussing the team’s thinking behind the EA PLAY stream’s content, what the team included and why the development team considered this the best approach. You can see that blog post here.

“We spent months going back and forth discussing the best strategy to release this content, and ultimately decided for the first-look, it was critical to present a focused 15 minutes of raw, in-game footage highlighting lightsaber gameplay that speaks to the Jedi fantasy in an empowering way,” Asmussen said. “This is a lot to describe in 15 minutes of gameplay. Getting hands on the full 25 minute experience is best to completely understand it.”

Set a few years after Revenge of the Sith, Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis has escaped clone Order 66 and is now on the run from the Galactic Empire. After attempting to salvage a Venator Class Star Destroyer above a Sarlacc Pit, an accident happens in which a nearby Imperial Probe Droid surveys the event in which Cal has to openly use the Force to save one of his friends from falling into the pit. The droid transmits the footage to the Empire causing Cal’s true identity to be revealed to the imperials. The Empire dispatches the Second Sister, an inquisitor trained by Darth Vader, to hunt down the Padawan and eradicate the remaining Jedi Knights.
