The first trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor premiered as part of Star Wars Celebration. The sequel to Respawn’s critically-acclaimed Star Wars game is set to be released in 2023.
In a brief, cinematic trailer we see Cal Kestis after the events of Jedi: Fallen Order. Where he is still on the run from the Empire. While the trailer is short on plot, it’s got plenty of Star Wars with new inquisitors and new mysteries.
Curiously, Cal who spent the previous game gaining a family of allies is all alone. And his lightsaber which he spent so much time rebuilding appears to fall into the hands of the Empire. Essentially, Cal is in a bad place at the start of Jedi: Survivor.
Respawn’s next Star Wars action RPG will be released on next-gen platforms PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. EA doesn’t make mention of past-gen consoles, but with developers moving towards new-gen systems there’s a good chance Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is too.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was one of the best-reviewed games when it was released, and a big coup for Respawn who were primarily known for their online multiplayer games like Titanfall and Apex Legends. By combining Star Wars with a deep single-player story campaign and Souls-like action RPG mechanics, Respawn brought Star Wars into the modern era. Check out IGN’s review for Jedi: Fallen Order here.
While short, the Jedi: Survivor trailer is chock-full of tantalizing narrative threads, so check out our deep dive into the trailer for all the storylines and secrets we’ve uncovered.
