Star Wars Jedi Knight : Survivor confirms a popular fan theory that has been running rampant since the game’s early trailer release. Every player has their own theory about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, however, this one stands out in particular and many players will be happy to see it confirmed.
The game is a sequel to the hugely popular Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and the early signs are very promising. A preview of Star Wars Jedi Knight : Survivor has confirmed that the game expands on the original in many ways by improving mechanics in ways that don’t reinvent the wheel. For many, this will be good news. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order provides a great foundation, and its soul-like mechanics offer a whole new perspective on the universe. Respawn Entertainment’s original sold extremely well, so it’s no surprise to see the developer give the series another try.
EA’s Andy McNamara confirmed on Twitter that the popular prequel trilogy planet Coruscant will be the destination players will explore in Star Wars Jedi: Survivors. The original game allowed players to explore familiar planets from Star Wars lore, including Dathomir, Ilum, and Kashyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, and it looks like this trend of bringing back famous locations will continue in the sequel. In the tweet, McNamara also confirmed that the game features their “biggest environment to date.” While he didn’t directly confirm the size of Coruscant in the game, it could indicate that there may be plenty of places on the planet for players to explore when the game launches.
Fans have been speculating about Coruscant’s return ever since Coruscant appeared briefly in the Star Wars Jedi : Survivors trailer at The Game Awards in December. Against the backdrop of Coruscant’s iconic nightlife, a quick shot shows new character Bode Akuna helping Cal climb the ledge. Planets throughout Star Wars history look eerily similar, Tattooine and Jakku being perfect examples, so nothing official until this confirmation. However, it appears players will finally be able to travel to the prequel trilogy planets when Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches later this month.
After Star Wars had a polarizing few years in the late 2010s, now is a great time to be a fan of the series again. Three new Star Wars movies were recently announced at Star Wars Celebration, along with multiple TV shows that will ensure the franchise remains at the forefront of pop culture. As the past has shown, Disney’s efforts will never please everyone, but there are still millions of fans who are still very excited about the future of Star Wars.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches April 28 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
