Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has given players a game that unveils more Star Wars lore than expected, including the new planet called Zeffo that contains a lot of interesting historical precedent for fans of the franchise. The Zeffo are introduced early in the game, giving players a chance to explore a desolate and dangerous world.
Zeffo is the second planet that players have access to and is the only path that leads to the Tomb of Eilram. Once players leave Bogano, they’ll have the option to visit either Zeffo or Dathomir. Zeffo gives players a first hand look at the Empire’s destruction. On this planet, players will face off against many different and dangerous enemies, including groups of Stormtroopers.
Zeffo is a large planet that sits on the outside of the Outer Rim. It was once home to a small community of archaeologists and pioneers who were capable of using the Force, but were not Jedi. The Zeffo ventured from the core worlds of the republic to establish their home. However, it becomes clear that the Zeffo were destroyed as part of The Empire’s ascent to power. The Empire pillaged historical sites, including the Zeffo sacred tombs, searching for anything that would have military value to them in their ongoing conquest. When the Empire realized there was nothing on the planet, they left to search for resources and information elsewhere. This left the Zeffo to fall into despair, fleeing their homes or facing starvation.
Zeffo is the perfect planet for players to practice their combat skills, despite being something of a ghost town when it comes to its original inhabitants. There are Stormtroopers hiding around every corner, ready to pounce on players when it’s least expected. The Stormtroopers are generally in large groups and at a distance, giving players a chance to practice deflecting blaster shots. However, deflecting will have no effect against Stormtroopers with rocket launchers. When faced with this enemy, it’s best for players to not even attempt to deflect the rocket launcher. Instead, practice parrying the attacks. This way, players can avoid any unnecessary damage.
Players also have a chance to practice the Force a little more. This planet is full of puzzles that Cal has to solve in order to move forward. This includes an Abandoned Village that is blocked off by a water mill. To get past this obstacle, players will have to use the Force to stop the mill from turning. Then, players are able to easily cross into the village. Players should be mindful of their surroundings at all times. There are many caves and hidden rooms to find on Zeffo that are only accessible by using the Force. If searching carefully enough, players will even be able to find the double bladed lightsaber.
