Limbs are safe in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

, | News

If Star Wars fans know one thing, it’s that lightsabers are for cutting off arms. Limbs are always getting lopped off in the films. Threaten a Jedi with a gun and you’ll likely earn a quick visit to the bacta tank and get a robo-hand grafted on for your trouble. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the upcoming game from Respawn and Electronic Arts, bucks that trend. Speaking to IGN, senior designer Justin Perez revealed that Disney and Lucasfilm have rules against dismemberment for their licencees. It’s fine for robots and animals, but people and humanoid aliens cannot be de-limbed, at least, not by the player. Oddly, decapitation is allowed in certain dramatic instances, but you can’t show the cut or blood. Think back to the scene of Jango Fett’s end in Episode II and you’ll get the idea. Point your gun at Jedi with impunity – as long as you’re not in an actual movie.
