Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars: Fallen Order was a fantastic action game. Both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, it came as surprise when a sequel, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor, was announced. And after a minor delay, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor is now set to release on 28th April, 2023. But when exactly will digital versions got live around the world?

The Star Wars: Jedi Survivor story details were revealed late last year. Our hero Cal Kestis returns five years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Pushed to the edges of the galaxy by the Empire, Cal is one of the last surviving Jedi Knights. To survive, players will build upon Cal’s training with an expanded list of iconic Force abilities, combat stances, and lightsaber customisations that can be combined in new and different ways. While the Force is a powerful ally, it may not be enough. Cal will have to get creative and master new abilities, tactics and even leverage the environment around him to overcome the obstacles ahead.

The level design of this sequel promises larger, more expansive maps populated with more NPCs. According to the developer, the design of planets like Koboh have also been made more open and expansive compared to Star Wars: Fallen Order. Lead Level Designer Martin Badowsky said that Respawn wanted Koboh to feature a dense central area with more open outskirts areas as the player explores outwards.
