STAR WARS JEDI: SURVIVOR Final Gameplay Trailer Has So Much Action You’ll Pass Out

We could not be more excited for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The long-awaited follow-up to 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order appears to have addressed many of the issues people had with the first game while ramping up everything that worked to…well, whatever the Aurebesh for 11 is. (Yes, I know I could look it up but I refuse.) The further adventures of Cal Kestis, BD-1, and the crew of the Mantis will take our heroes on their most dangerous missions yet. EA and Respawn have released the final gameplay trailer ahead of the game’s April 28 release. Enjoy!

We got the opportunity to play nearly four hours of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor at an event in Hollywood recently and it was absurdly fun. We found out, and this trailer certainly indicates as much, that Cal will get the opportunity to fight alongside various companions in his quest. Merrin, the reformed Dathomir Sister, appears in one scene in the trailer. We also know one of Cal’s friends he met between games will feature; we can see him punch a stormtrooper in the helmet. Now that’s a cool guy.

If you’d like to see more of what we found out on our hands-on playthrough—including fighting a Rancor in a pit—watch our 12 Things We Learned.

Cal Kestis kneels down to talk to BD-1 in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

One character we met in our playthrough who shows up several times in the above gameplay trailer is the raider captain Rayvin. He’s the big guy in the red armor. Cal faces down against him in a gunslinger-style exchange but the crime boss smartly walks away. Apparently he doesn’t stay away for long (are you surprised?). He shows up in what looks like two separate boss fights in the trailer. How exciting!

We can’t wait to see what becomes of Cal and BD when Star Wars Jedi: Survivor drops April 28.
