If the game’s panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 didn’t give you enough information, Respawn Entertainment video game director Stig Asmussen sat down with website GamingBolt and gave a little more information.
While we didn’t get an actual gameplay trailer, Asmussen revealed some detail on what to expect while playing the game. He says that the game will focus on a smaller cast of characters (many of the characters we haven’t been introduced to as of yet), with Asmussen likening to a “man vs wild story”.
“We do have more characters to reveal,” said Asmussen when asked about the more “lonesome” vibe that the game’s reveal trailer seemed to give off. “The trailer showed Cere. We knew we weren’t going to be able to make a game that has huge crowds in it. I don’t want to worry about things like creating crowd tech. We decided to make a story that’s more ‘man versus wild.’ That allowed us range to go to different places and explore different places. It’s not just Cal versus the environment, but also Cal versus the elements. To a certain extent, the Empire versus the elements as well.”
The first trailer (below) only gave us a look at cut scenes and gave us a quick look at what the story is going to be about. Hopefully future trailers will finally show us some of the gameplay footage, so that fans can understand exactly what to expect when playing this game.
