What happens at the end of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor?

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes players to Tanalorr for a dramatic showdown in its final act. The Mantis crew arrives on the space anomaly, and Cal and Merrin leave the ship to find the traitor Bode Akuna.

They find Bode and his daughter Kata and try to reconcile with no success. Bode refuses to surrender, and players are soon immersed in one last long battle.

Once Cal seemingly defeats Bode Akuna, the traitorous Jedi asks Cal to protect Kata from the Empire. Before Cal can give any answer, Bode laughs and jumps to grab him while pushing Kata and force-choking Merrin. Cal uses dark powers to break free and both Jedi point their blasters at each other.

Bode fires, but his blaster doesn’t work. Cal, on the other hand, lands two shots at Bode and kills him.

In the final moments of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the Mantis crew takes a moment to hold a funeral for Bode Akuna, Cere Junda, and Eno Cordova. When everyone leaves, Cal stays and can be seen telepathically speaking with Cere.

There, Cal confesses his fears and admits he’s worried he might fully embrace the dark side. With words of wisdom, Cere reassures him and tells Cal to “guide her through the darkness.”

Is there a Star Wars Jedi: Survivor post-credits cut scene?

Now that the game is out, we know Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has a post-credits scene for players to watch.

The cut scene picks up right after the funeral and shows Cal, Merrin, and Greez discussing their plans for the future. They plan on building a home in Tanalorr, and Cal gives the compass to Kata, insinuating that she’s now part of the crew.

Time will tell if this scene means players should get ready for another installment of the Star Wars Jedi saga. Luckily, fans have a lot to do while they wait for a confirmation on the sequel, thanks to the New Game Plus mode.
