Survivor Gets Explosive New Trailer (& Release Date)
A new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has premiered at The Game Awards 2022, revealing a release date and preorder details.
A new trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been revealed at The Game Awards 2022 alongside a release date for the game. A teaser for the highly-anticipated sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was first shown earlier this year, but very little about the story was actually revealed, and no real gameplay was shown. Survivor is one of three Star Wars games currently being developed by Respawn Entertainment, although its currently unknown what the other two are.
Rumors of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor coming to TGA 2022 have proven true, with a new trailer for the game premiering during the ceremony as well as a release date announcement. The trailer demonstrated Cal being fully familial with his Jedi powers, showing them off against both foes and different creatures, teasing several new characters as well. Limited Run Games has also announced a special Collector’s Edition of the game, featuring a SteelBook and full-size version of Cal’s lightsaber hilt. The game is set to release March 17 2023.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Has A Lot Of Potential
It was already clear from the first teaser that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has a lot of potential as a game, but this new trailer has emphasized that point even more. The fresh footage really exemplifies how the ending of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has left a myriad of storyline opportunities open for protagonist Cal Kestis to explore what it means to be a Jedi. On top of an intriguing story, the gameplay in the new trailer shows off a lot of Survivor‘s engaging lightsaber combat, which was a large part of what made the first title so beloved.
The release date of March 2023 for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor may be surprisingly soon for some players. The game is set to release less than a year after its teaser trailer premiered, a much faster turnaround than is seen for a lot of AAA titles. March 2023 means the game will arrive with ample time for players to get ahold of it for Star Wars Day on May 4, although many excited fans may have already finished it by then.
Considered one of Star Wars‘ best video game Jedi by many players, Cal Kestis’ return early next year is certainly something for fans to be excited about, particularly after seeing this new trailer. Although there’s still a lot left to learn about the game’s antagonist and mysterious Bacta Tank character, the new footage offered more insight into the action awaiting players in 2023. With the new details given in this trailer about preorders, story, and the release happening in only a handful of months, players can finally let themselves start truly getting excited about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
