It appears the Star Wars Jedi Survivor release date has been accidentally revealed ahead of its big showing at The Game Awards 2022. Set five years after the events of Fallen Order, Cal Kestis continues his fight against the Empire during one of the galaxy’s darkest periods.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order saw Cal Kestis transition from a Padawan to a deadly Jedi Knight, but his dire situation has only gotten worse in the action-adventure game. The Empire’s power continues to grow, pushing Cal to the edge of the galaxy where he faces a new set of problems. Here’s everything you need to know about the Star Wars Jedi Survivor release date, including speculation on the story, and what pre-order DLC you can pick up at launch.

Protagonist Cal Kestis hasn’t just grown some fuzz on his face, he’s making his presence known to the Empire instead of hiding. You can check out the new trailer in the video above.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor story speculation

As we know that Survivor takes place five years after Fallen Order, this means the game takes place roughly ten years after Revenge of the Sith. The Empire during this time is at the peak of its power, with almost no opposition to stand in its way.

In the teaser trailer released back in May, things looked bad for Cal as he seems to have lost his lightsaber. According to an interview with the official Star Wars website, the person who now holds Cal’s lightsaber is an imperial senator. The senator made a deal with a lightsaber wielder to track down Cal, but he managed to escape albeit without his trusty laser sword. The official trailer highlights Cal’s new lightsaber fighting styles, however, so we know he manages to get hold of the famous sci-fi swords once again at some point during the story.

The last third of the trailer reveals a one-armed man inside a bacta tank, a cylindrical pod filled with liquid that can rapidly heal injuries. It’s unclear who this man is, but fans have speculated that this could be the left-handed Sith fighter who features in the trailer.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor pre-order DLC

The Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Steam page also gave fans a look at the cosmetics you can get your hands on if you pre-order the upcoming game. Pre-order the standard edition to receive the following Obi-Wan Kenobi-inspired items:

  • ‘Hermit’ Cosmetic
