Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will play host to the next chapter in the story of Cal Kestis. Respawn Entertainment’s action-Soulslike series will feature new and returning elements. So let’s find out everything we know about the next Star Wars game.

After the controversial Star Wars: Battlefront II in which microtransactions proved to be a sore point, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order proved to be a stellar success for the franchise. As a result, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been commissioned and is due to drop in 2023.

Players and fans of the series alike have become acquainted with the underdog story of Cal Kestis, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor shows a more grown-up, veteran version of the Jedi.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – Release date

The force will be with players on April 28, 2023, as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will grace screens with its presence on this day.

Fans who’ve been following the developmental progress of the game will know that this isn’t the original release date which was projected – March 17, 2023.

While the content aspect of the game is complete, the devs declared that they still have things to clean up on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor: “bug fixes to enhance performance, stability, polish, and most importantly, the player experience.”

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – Story & gameplay

One of the most surprising aspects of the original title was its heavy focus on combat and its Soulslike elements, inspired by games such as Elden Ring, that challenged more casual fans. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sounds as if it will still be retaining these elements of its gameplay and adding to them.

An area that will feel completely different is the combat and the game’s director, Stig Asmussen, told GameInformer: “A lot of it depends on the enemy that you’re coming across,” said Asmussen. “It’s advantageous to use certain types of stances against certain types of enemies, and it’s up to the player to figure that out.”

As for the story, the trailers have shown a more mature and scarred, literally, Cal, and our grizzled warrior is on the hunt for something. What that is, has not been revealed yet, but we do know that Cal is numero uno on the Empire’s hit list.

Even though it didn’t reveal too much as most initial reveal trailers don’t, the Official Teaser on May 27, 2022, kickstarted the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor hype.

Things got a bit meatier and more substantial at the 2022 Game Awards when EA showed off the full Official Reveal Trailer.
