“Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” takes place five years after the events of “Fallen Order,” which itself is five years removed from the events of the film “Revenge of the Sith.” In it, you play as Cal Destis, a former Jedi Padawan who successfully hid from the devastating effects of Order 66, which called for the extermination of all Jedi as they were sworn enemies to Darth Vader’s Galactic Empire. Cal exposed himself by using Force powers in front of a drone to save a friend, an act that would ultimately instigate an explosive manhunt.
We won’t spoil too much about that game in case you have plans to catch up before “Survivor’s” launch, but we can tell you that you’ll reassume command of Cal in a direct continuation of “Fallen Order’s” story. According to screenshots acquired by Wario64 on Twitter before the Steam listing was updated, those who pre-order the Deluxe edition will receive six exclusive cosmetic pieces, including new clothes for Cal and skins for his BD-1 droid and lightsaber.
“Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” is set to launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, the latter requiring only mid-tier hardware to meet the recommended system requirements.
