Respawn Entertainment, Electronic Arts, and Lucasfilm Games released the first teaser trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor at Star Wars Celebration today. The sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order once again chronicles the journey of Cal Kestis, a young Jedi who survived Order 66 and remained in hiding until he became a target of the Empire.
Picking up five years after the events of Fallen Order, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor finds Cal Kestis beginning to feel the weight of being one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy as he must stay one step ahead of the Empire’s constant pursuit. Accompanied by his trusty companion BD-1, Cal will meet and ally himself with an array of unique and interesting characters on his journey. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will expand on the series’ dynamic combat in new and innovative ways. In order to survive, Cal must learn new skills and grow his connection with the Force.
Respawn game director Stig Asmussen said, “Even before completing Jedi: Fallen Order, our team had a vision of how to carry the adventure for Cal, BD, and the crew into the sequel. For Jedi: Survivor, we are working in lockstep with Lucasfilm Games to build on the legacy of Jedi: Fallen Order. We’re leveraging advanced technology to create more dynamic Jedi combat and cinematic storytelling to expand on Cal’s story as he matures and survives during the dark times. We can’t wait to share more about the game with the world later this year.” Lucasfilm Games vice president Douglas Reilly added, “Millions of Star Wars fans have been captivated by the story of Cal Kestis, and we’re thrilled to be working with the world-class developers at Respawn to continue this epic tale. We could not be more excited to reveal Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and this next chapter of Cal Kestis’ journey with players around the world.” I quite enjoyed the first game, particularly the lightsaber combat, which in my opinion, was the best since Jedi Outcast twenty years ago.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is being developed for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC and will be released in 2023. What did you think of the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor trailer?
