Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Story Trailer Reveals More Surprises

If you’ve been looking forward to Respawn Entertainment’s next Star Wars game, you’ll have another new trailer to look over. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set to release on April 28th, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, following up from the previous game made by Respawn Entertainment. Now that the release of the game is imminent, EA revealed on their official social media pages and YouTube channel a new Story Trailer that sheds some light on what the plot of the game will be. But with more answers comes even more questions.

The sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set around 5 years after the events of the previous game. Cal Kestis and the crew of The Mantis have been evading the Galactic Empire, as the galaxy falls into despair following the major events of Order 66. In the trailer, Cal Kestis is seen with a number of characters from Jedi Fallen Order, including our first real look at Merrin in the game. We also see Cal interacting with Cere Junda, giving Greez a hug, and speaking with newcomer Bode Akuna.

Of course, there’s a lot of action included in the trailer too. Cal Kestis is going to be getting into a lot of trouble throughout the course of the game, including what seems to be another vehicle crash while fighting the Empire on a planet that we don’t know. Lightsabers will clash as well with plenty of new enemies that will stand in Cal’s way. One of the baddies we get another quick look at in the new trailer includes Rayvis, an armored Gen’Dai that will fight Cal Kestis at some point during the story.

One interesting part of the trailer featured the mysterious figure who is wearing gold robes, signifying a possible connection to the High Republic era of Star Wars. The figure tosses over a stormtrooper helmet and scolds Cal Kestis for allowing the Empire to take control of the galaxy, which he deemed unworthy. Who this person is and what they want is unknown for now, but we can expect a major reveal that may connect multiple eras of Star Wars together in the game. What we do now is that they also have a lightsaber on their belt, signifying they might be a Jedi looking for a fight with Cal.

While the story trailer has glimpses of some of the action we’ll see in the final release, we still have a bit longer to wait before Jedi Survivor hits stores. Other things that can be spotted are quick shots of the puzzle dungeons, lightsaber combat forms with different lightsaber builds, as well as teaming up with an ally to take down enemies. Before it was known Cal Kestis could team up with Bode Akuna, but it looks like Merrin will be an ally in combat as well. Maybe we’ll see other characters jump into the fight too? We’ll find out when Star Wars Jedi: Survivor releases on April 28th. Until then, make sure you check out our look at Five Star Wars Things to Watch before Jedi Survivor comes out!
