This year we will have to live a new galactic adventure. If you are one of those who fell in love with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and its single player proposal, on April 28 get ready for a bigger, darker and above all more epic sequel. That’s how it is Star Wars Jedi Survivor.
Initially planned for March 16, Respawn finally decided to slightly delay Jedi Survivor to give the team more time. And we think it’s the right decision.
Not because the game looks bad. Far from it, and it is that its new 9-minute gameplay is a complete outrage. But we want to make sure that we receive the best game possible.

In Star Wars Jedi Survivor, five years have passed since Cal Kestis’ first voyage. He was once a young Padawan, but now he is a full Jedi Knight that he even flirts with smuggling in offensive situations.
This is precisely what they talk about Stig Asmussen y Jason De Herasresponsible for Star Wars Jedi Survivor, who present us with new details (via IGN) of how Cal Kestis has evolved.
Combat stances and… dismemberments
Cal Kestis has ceased to be a Padawan, and is already a full Jedi Knight. However, he is not a traditional Jedi, since exile after Order 66 has given him picaresque abilities more typical of a smuggler. That’s the way it is in Star Wars Jedi Survivor.
From Respawn they confirm that Cal will have five combat stances in this sequel. In addition to the traditional style with one blade, we can carry two twin sabers, or even a double blade.
Do you remember Darth Maul’s double sword in The Phantom Menace? Well, in Star Wars Jedi Survivor we will have a double sheet to wreak havoc among enemies.
”We felt it was important to give the player a bigger arsenal from the start. So we had two stances fully realized in the first game, and we had a stance where you had a twin blade, which was something we wanted to fully realize in the first game, but we basically ran out of time,” says Stig Asmussen. .
Apparently, double blade stance was the default in Star Wars Jedi Survivor, as the team already had experience with the single blade and twin blades (two swords).
But be careful, in Jedi Survivor we have two other combat positions: saber with blaster, and cross guard. This is what Jason de Heras has to say about the cross guard stance, which is very reminiscent of Kylo Ren.
”We wanted the player to feel really powerful, but there’s also a lot of risk, probably even more so than with twin blades I’d say. You need to understand spacing, because with that stance, we don’t artificially push you into an enemy. It’s a bit like a fighting game’s stance.”
Finally we have the combat that alternates lightsaber and blaster. Gone are the honorable times of the Jedi Order, and now Cal Kestis will realize that survival is the most important thing.
Of course, do not expect to see details of a shooter in Jedi Survivor. The blaster can be used, but never at a long distance, but as an add-on for certain enemies, or as part of executions.
A very interesting detail is that, despite the fact that the age rating did not contemplate it (due to Disney legal issues), Star Wars Jedi Survivor yes it will have dismemberments (although without blood).

In this way, Cal Kestis will be able to cut enemies into small pieces. Not literally, but, for example, some moves will slice off an opponent’s leg or arm.
Star Wars Jedi Survivor will be Available from April 28 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC. The game won’t be coming out on PS4 and Xbox One, unlike the original, and Respawn explained why in a recent interview.
