The EA E3 2019 showcase started with a bang this year. We got a full-on gameplay reveal of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, new details on Apex Legends Season 2, more upcoming Battlefield V maps, our first look at Madden 20, the new street ball coming to FIFA 20 and much more. Head below for all the biggest highlights and reveal trailers.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay Reveal:
As expected, EA kicked things off with a lengthy 15 minute gameplay demo of the highly anticipated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Courtesy of trusted folks at Respawn Entertainment, many have suggested this game could help EA redeem itself in major way with gamers. And after today’s reveal, it appears as though that may very well be true.
We catch main protagonist Cal, on a mission to “Free the Wookies” in today’s EA E3 2019 gameplay reveal. The “expert” play through showed off some sweet-looking Lightsaber Jedi abilities; blocking shots, parrying, manipulating the environment, wall running, Force powers (push, pull, double jumps, time slow down), Lightsaber boomerangs and more.
In between skirmishes, Cal can climb through the environment (Uncharted-style) with his handy explorer droid sidekick (BD-1). Feast your eyes on the gameplay trailer above, and there’s even more coming in the Microsoft presser tomorrow afternoon.

Next it’s the Al Sundan, North African desert; camps, radar towers and an air base, EA is doubling down on vehicle-based combat with today’s second map reveal. Operation Underground is the final map reveal today and takes us down in to the subways “along with few surprises” for the community as well. Chapter 4 will also bring new close quarters maps nearer the end of August and beyond. Deploy to the Pacific for an “iconic World War II experience” in Chapter 5 (coming this fall).
