A fan has uncovered a Revenge of the Sith reference in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and it's so well hidden, it's a surprise anyone found it at all.

Whilst navigating the prologue of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Reddit user u/LordEmostache discovered that if you hit a button in the train segment 66 times, a sound clip of Darth Sidious’s famous line “execute order 66” will be triggered. Take a look at this impressive find below.

In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, during the first mission if you press the button on the train 66 times, it will play a familiar soundbite from r/GamingDetails

Other fans were astonished by the find and flocked to the comments of the post to share their enthusiasm for the easter egg. One user asked: “how do people figure out these kind of Easter eggs?” to which the original poster explained “by pressing every button lots of times. Luckily this is like the first button in the game. Also when you press it, nothing happens so you turn around, but that's basically like a big sign saying ‘chances are you press this button enough and some secrets gonna activate’".

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order has maintained its popularity as a next-gen update of the game for PS5 and Xbox Series X was released earlier this year. The game’s developer Respawn Entertainment has also started working on a new IP recently, and thanks to an announcement from EA, many believe that the studio may be working on a Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order sequel

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
