Star Wars Jedi: Survivor trailers
The latest trailer for Jedi: Survivor fell among numerous announcements at The Game Awards 2022. A hybrid of cinematic action and gameplay trailer, this “official trailer” pretty much conveys the game’s darker tone and frantic combat sequences.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – history and setting
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues the story of Cal Kestus, a Jedi who survived the slaughter of his order by fleeing to the edge of the galaxy. IN Jedi: Fallen Order, we learn that Cal cannot escape the long arm of the Empire and soon has to fight for his life against the forces of the Inquisition. Working with another Jedi in exile, Cal works to rebuild the Jedi Order.
Set five years later Fallen Order, Jedi: Survivor continues Cal’s story. According to game page (opens in a new tab), our hero became a full-fledged Jedi Knight. However, Cal is still haunted by “the memories and expectations of the Jedi Order.” Moreover, it looks like it will bring combat to the Empire in a new way
Although we know that Cal and his trusty droid BD-1 will return to their roles Jedi: Survivor, we don’t know exactly which members of the supporting cast will also be returning. However, the trailer introduces a brand new character who boasts a close bond with our hero. The new addition Bode Akuna is a mercenary who, according to Game Guide (opens in a new tab)“forms a special bond” with Cal, playing “the role of an AI buddy who helps in both combat and traversal.”
Game Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Jedi: Survivor continues the tradition of its predecessor by offering responsive third-person action, fast-paced lightsaber duels, and satisfying Force powers. While we don’t have too many specific details yet, the gameplay we’ve seen Jedi: Survivorteasers indicate that the satisfying Soulsborne hack and cut from the original is back. We can probably expect customizable trees of power and a rest system reminiscent of Elden Ring’s places of grace.
However, game director Stig Asmussen gave more than a few hints about the new mechanics coming Jedi: Survivor. In an interview with Game ranking in December 2022, Asmussen clarified that Cal will be able to employ five lightsaber stances, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. These include the standard single saber, double sabers, Darth Maul style saber staff, crossguard saber, and saber/blaster combo.
Star Wars fans will notice that the latest style is a clear departure from Jedi orthodoxy. Eventually, Obi-Wan himself criticized the “clumsy and random” nature of the blaster. Still, in keeping with the series’ gruff tone, it looks like Cal is doing his best to survive, even if it means flying in the face of centuries of Jedi conventions.
