As we have already noted by admiring the first gameplay footage of the game, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, the new single-player action-adventure developed by Respawn Entertainment, will not present human dismemberments.
Many fans have been disappointed with this aspect of the production since the lightsaber used by our Jedi played by Cameron Monaghan should be able to do with a certain ease to slice the enemies that will hinder our way from time to time.
According to what we learn, the decision to reserve the dismemberments only for animals and droids is due to a position taken by Disney and LucasArts, as confirmed by IGN.com:
“We are very disappointed that we cannot dismember enemies with our lightsaber. In fact, we can more or less: practically droids, spiders and similar creatures can lose limbs, but not humanoids. , the fault is to be assigned to Disney.
In fact, talking to Tatyana Drewry Carvin, a Story Artist of the seventh season of the animated series The Clone Wars, we discovered that this practice concerning the dismemberment is very common in Star Wars branded products, suggesting that it is a LucasArts choice”.
Respawn, apparently, he also received the precise directive not to explicitly show the human/humanoid beheadings and the shedding of blood on the screen.
Recall that Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 15, 2019.
