With Order 66, the Jedi seemed to have fallen, but in the end they survived. EA has released ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’, the sequel to ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order‘.
On the 28th, EA announced the new Star Wars game ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’ on the official website and announced the release in 2023 along with a new teaser video.
On this day’s teaser, you can also see Carl Kestis, the protagonist of the previous work, who is a little more mature, and Carl’s partner, BD-1, who gained great popularity for his cute appearance. However, unlike the ending of the previous work, which heralded a new hope and journey, this teaser depicts Carl struggling. In addition to this, the image of the sword’s lightsaber that fell into the hands of the enemy, a figure who appears to be the Grand Inquisitor, or a new Inquisitor, and a person receiving treatment in the Bacta Tank were also recorded in the video.
The previous work, ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ is an action game that deals with the story of Padawan Carl Kestis, who survived Order 66, an order to kill the Jedi. The production team was well-received by fans by creating the appearance of a sword growing as a Jedi while the user adapts to the game and progresses as the setting of the sword of the apprentice knights who received Jedi training.
In addition to this, the game showed attractive action by incorporating the characteristics of various large franchise games such as Sekiro and Uncharted. In addition, it deals with the time period between Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith and Episode 4 A New Hope, and contains a relatively good story within a limited section that has no choice but to have an ending.
This sequel takes place five years after the previous work. Although he was not officially selected as a Jedi, it seems that you will be able to meet the grown-up image of Carl, who showed strong enough action as a Jedi. Also, like its predecessor, Respawn Entertainment produces games, and Lucasfilm Games, which is involved in the production of related IP games such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones, is participating in the development.
Respawn Entertainment’s Stig Asmussen, who leads the development of the sequel following the previous work, said on the Star Wars website on the same day that he expects to utilize the features of the next-generation console, such as real-time lighting such as ray tracing and fast loading, in game development. In addition, he said that he had an idea for this work before the development announcement of the sequel in January, and even before the development of ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ was completed, and told fans to look forward to Star Wars experience as a game once again.
‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’ will be released for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S in 2023.
