Limbs Aren’t Gonna Get Chopped Off Left & Right in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Kelch told Shacknews that the developer team at Respawn Entertainment “used the films as reference” while working on the game with Disney. The team realized that moments where Star Wars characters got dismembered were “used as powerful moments” so Respawn will use dismemberment in Fallen Order in a similar way.

Some of the character animations came with a little chop, but these are standard E3 demo woes bubbling to the surface. The combat has the potential for major depth (assuming the skill tree has many branches), and the world-building touches are numerous.”
