Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order isn't a stealth game?

Leaks concerning Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order - Respawn Entertainment's production set in the universe of Star Wars, have been surfacing on the Internet since the end of last year. The official presentation took place last Saturday. Then the first trailer of the game was shown. Along with it, there are assumptions that it will be an action game containing stealth elements. This theory was discredited by Stig Asmussen, the game's director.

In an interview for IGN he stated that sneaking kills the fun in the game. Technically, this will probably be possible, but the mechanics will not be developed by the creators.

"You could potentially, if you wanted, sneak around and not get the AI’s attention. I guess that’s technically possible. It’s not something we’re openly encouraging. We want the player to have fun and the power fantasy of having a lightsaber and Force powers and stealth doesn’t really fit into that or this game," said Asmussen.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a linear action game that takes place right after the events of Star Wars Episode III. Players will take on the role of a former padawan, Cal Kestis, who tries to hide his past from the Galactic Empire. Slated for release on November 15, 2019, on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the game is now available for preorder via Origin. The standard edition costs $59.90 and the deluxe edition costs $69.90. Interestingly, the producers assure that the title will feature neither microtransactions nor multiplayer. It would be a big change from the previous work from this universe, Electronic Arts' Star Wars: Battlefront II, in which loot boxes became the subject of great controversy.
