Cal seeks out a safe haven from the Empire

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes place half a decade after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. During a time of great uncertainty as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy, Cal Kestis, now more experienced and battle-hardened, is determined to find a place of safety, far from the clutches of the Empire.

Together with his loyal droid BD-1, as well as old friends Cere Junda, Greez Dritus, and Merrin, as well as a new ally in the form of the mercenary Bode Akuna, Cal stands strong against the Empire and other dangerous enemies. Along his journey, Cal will explore both new and familiar worlds in the Star Wars universe. These travels include the planet Koboh, which is home to the Bedlam Raiders.

Evolved gameplay, story and exploration

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor builds upon the gameplay, narrative, and exploration mechanics of its predecessor, Fallen Order. The game introduces a range of new combat stances. Two of which are Dual Lightsabers and the Crossguard stance. These new combat stances offer more nuanced and devastating ways for Cal to take down his enemies. From standard Stormtroopers and Imperial Sentry Droids to more formidable and enigmatic foes.

In addition to the expanded combat options, Cal has access to new traversal techniques, including an ascension cable for scaling heights and the ability to tame and ride various creatures to help him navigate the challenges of the galaxy’s different worlds.

Jedi Survivor’s combat system is highly responsive and dynamic, with a host of new lightsaber abilities and Force powers to master, adding another layer of strategy to every enemy encounter. The worlds in the game are also filled with environmental puzzles and obstacles that must be surmounted to uncover the mysteries lying in wait.

  1. I can’t wait for this sequel, I remember popping in the first game and it was like playing a film. Right from the beginning there was so much weight to the story.

  2. I am super hyped for this game. I had a lot of fun with Fallen Order on Google Stadia. But I’ll be playing Jedi:Survivor on the xbox series s. I’m stoked.
