The next of Cal Kestis’ story is ready to be written as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the highly anticipated sequel to 2019’s critically and commercially successful action game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is just a little over a month away from its release on April 28. To stoke the fires of excitement that fans have been burning since the game’s announcement, Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment have released a new trailer for the upcoming action-adventure video game.
The new trailer once again follows series lead Cal, played by Cameron Monaghan as he explores all new reaches of the galaxy far, far away and meets new faces and old ones while also showing off some of the new abilities that players will be able to use. The trailer shows Cal five years later as he fights to restore hope to the galaxy.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues the story of Cal Kestis, a young Padawan introduced to the world in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order who survived the horrors of Order 66 and has found himself trying to live unnoticed in an Empire-controlled galaxy. He eventually finds himself in a story revolving around Holocron with a list of Force-sensitive children to ensure that they do not fall into the Empire’s hands and with the help of his new friends including the former Jedi Cere (Debra Wilson), Nightsister Merrin (Tina Ivlev), and his trusted droid companion BD-1, they are able to succeed in their mission. The new game picks up 5 years following the last game as the group still finds themselves battling against the Empire. Cal quickly became a fan-favorite character following the game’s release with the title also receiving rave reviews, currently sitting at a 79 on Metacritic. The game was also a commercial success, selling over 10 million copies in its first year.
