Latest trailer

The most recent trailer for Jedi: Survivor came out at The Game Awards 2022, where there were also many other previews. This “Official Reveal Trailer” shows a lot about the game’s darker tone and fast-paced battles through a mix of cinematic action and gameplay teasers.

The trailer doesn’t say much about the story, but it looks like Jedi: Survivor’s main character, Cal Kestis, is in for a rough ride, both literally and metaphorically. From crashing on a dry planet to fighting some suspicious-looking customers in the middle of a deserted town, it looks like Cal is in for a hard, but definitely Star Wars-like, time.



Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues the story of Cal Kestus, a Jedi who escaped the killing of his order by fleeing to the edge of the galaxy. In Jedi: Fallen Order, we find out that Cal can’t get away from the Empire, and he soon finds himself fighting for his life against the forces of the Inquisition. Cal works with another Jedi-in-exile to try to rebuild the Jedi Order.

Set five years after the events of Fallen Order, Jedi: Survivor continues Cal’s story. According to the game’s website (opens in new tab), our hero is now a full-fledged Jedi Knight. But Cal is still haunted by “the memories and expectations of the Jedi Order.” On top of all that, it looks like he’ll be taking the fight to the Empire in a new way.

We know that Cal and his trusty droid BD-1 will be back in their roles in Jedi: Survivor, but we don’t know who else from the supporting cast will be back. But the trailer shows off a brand new character who is close with our main character. The new character Bode Akuna is a mercenary who, according to Game Informer(opens in new tab), “forms a special bond” with Cal and acts as a “buddy A.I. character who helps in both combat and movement.”


Jedi: Survivor is like its predecessor in that it has responsive third-person action, fast-paced lightsaber battles, and satisfying Force powers. Even though we don’t know much about the game yet, the gameplay we’ve seen in the trailers for Jedi: Survivor shows that the Soulsborne hacking and slashing from the first game is back. We can probably expect force power trees that can be changed and a way to rest that looks like Elden Ring’s sites of grace.

But Jedi: Survivor’s game director, Stig Asmussen, has given more than a few hints about how the game will change. Asmussen told Game Rant in a December 2022 interview that Cal will be able to use five different Lightsaber stances, each with its own pros and cons. These include the single saber, two sabers, a saber staff like Darth Maul’s, a saber with a crossguard, and a saber and blaster in one.

Star Wars fans will notice that the last style is very different from what Jedi usually do. After all, Obi-Wan himself said that a blaster was “clumsy and random.” Still, in keeping with the dark tone of the show, it seems like Cal will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even if that means going against what Jedi have done for hundreds of years.


In a recent interview, game director Stig Asmussen said that a third game might be in the works.

Asmussen made it clear to IGN that he had “always wanted [the series] to be a trilogy.” Even though Respawn hasn’t said anything for sure yet, it’s great to know that the team has been thinking about how they want the series’ overall story to go for a long time.

The director of Respawn explains why Star Wars Jedi: Survivor won’t be on PS4 and Xbox One.
It looks like people with PS4 and Xbox One won’t be able to play the next part of Cal Kestis’s story. This is becoming more and more common.

In a recent interview, game director Stig Asmussen said that the developers of Jedi: Survivor wanted to “take advantage of the faster processors, larger/faster memory, better loading times, etc., to create much larger maps with more detail, greater density, a wider range of enemies and NPCs, and overall fidelity.”
