Disney Ordered Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order From Featuring Any Dismemberment

Respawn Entertainment might have left out some of the best details of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order during the game's big debut at the 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo, but fans still seem to be blown away by the game's combat.

There's a lot to love about Fallen Order. Not only is it EA's first Star Wars videogame with a focus on lightsaber battles, but the combat for Fallen Order has been described as methodical and weighty. The only problem is that the gameplay for the game doesn't show protagonist Cal Kestis properly cutting through his enemies. Knowing the physics of lightsabers, gamers expect Fallen Order to feature enemies cut in half and enemies with severed limbs.

Instead, when Cal's lightsaber makes contact with stormtroopers and other villains, the enemies remain significantly intact.

IGN has an explanation for this. According to the news outlet, Fallen Order's gameplay has toned down violence because of Disney. Apparently, the Mickey Mouse House requested that Respawn Entertainment refrains from featuring dismemberment of any kind in the game. Gamers will still be able to chop off the limbs off droids and other creatures, but Fallen Order won't allow them to severe the humanoids.

Disney didn't limit this rule to Fallen Order. In an interview with Tatyana Drewry Cavin, a story artist working on season 7 of The Clone Wars, the Mickey Mouse House made the same kind of order with the series. Guess Disney wants to keep Star Wars as family friendly as it can.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order releases on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 15, 2019.
