It is already a fact that on December 8, during the Game Awards 2022 gala, we will be able to see a new preview of Star Wars Jedi: Survivorthe long-awaited sequel to Fallen Order. The game was officially announced last May, but EA hadn’t offered any additional information since then. Unfortunately for the company, not only has its presence in the aforementioned awards been leaked, but also the release date.
A steam oversight —already solved, by the way— has allowed us to know that information. According to the page of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on said platform, the game will be available on March 16, 2023. If correct, we would only have to wait three months to enjoy the new adventure of Cal Kestis. Undoubtedly, quite surprising news, since the vast majority expected it at the end of next year. Obviously, the date would become official at the Game Awards.
Lately, EA has changed their strategy when it comes to when they announce the release date of their titles. Instead of doing it way ahead of time—and risking the inevitable delays—they now prefer to do it when the game is nearing completion. Star Wars Jedi: SurvivorSo you would be following in the footsteps of Need For Speed Unbound in this sense.
The Steam page of Star Wars Jedi: SurvivorIn addition, he advanced some details of the game. For example, The story is set five years after the events of Fallen Order. Also, the combat system will be more cinematic and complex. The reason? After the complicated experiences that took place in the previous title, Cal Kestis stopped being a simple apprentice. He is now prepared, but willing to continue learning new skills in the face of even more dangerous threats.
“Cal is no longer a Padawan, he has become a powerful Jedi Knight. Carrying with him the memories and expectations of the Jedi Order, his crusade against the Empire has only grown more dangerous. Dark times are drawing near, and with new and familiar enemies around him, Cal will have to decide how far he’s willing to go to save those closest to him.” Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (via Gematsu).
Regarding the scenarios, again it will be possible to visit different planets. Some of them, as mentioned, will be easily recognized by fans of Star Wars, although at the moment they have not specified which ones. Of course, they already warn that environments will be more openthus benefiting the exploration component:
“Discover new planets and familiar frontiers in the galaxy of Star Wars, each with unique biomes, challenges, and enemies. Master new skills and equipment that will increase the ways you explore and fight. With larger areas to explore and more to discover off the beaten track, players who venture beyond the horizon will find hidden rewards.”
I remember that it will be on Thursday, December 8 when Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment show off in style Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
