One of the greatest additions to the game is the inclusion of several unique fighting stances for protagonist Cal Kestis. According to game director Stig Asmussen, there will be a total of five fully realized stances in the game, each with its own particular benefits and disadvantages. A single of these stances will allow Cal to wield a gun and lightsaber at the same time, adding a new ranged dynamic to his combat style. Another new stance will see Cal flipping and spinning his dual blades at elevated speed, while a third will allow him to wield a crossguard-style lightsaber similar to Kylo Ren’s. Asmussen stated that the choice of stance will depend on the enemy being faced, and it will be up to the player to figure out which stance is suitable to the circumstance.
In addition, to the returning characters BD-1, a fan favorite and Cere Junda, the skilled Jedi Knight, players can also look forward to meeting an exciting, never-before-seen character named Bode Akuna. Bode will serve as a helpful, artificial intelligence character, aiding Cal in both combat and traversal. Speaking of traversal, the game, Jedi Survivor will also introduce several new mechanics that allow for enhanced flexibility in exploration. This includes the use of a futuristic, high-tech cable for climbing and crossing distances, as well as the ability to domesticate and mount mounts. According to Asmussen, the traversal in the game will have a «Metroidvania feel», permitting Cal, the player character to chain together various skills in order to traverse the in-game world.
Gamers can also expect to visit a previously unexplored planet in the Star Wars universe, as well as countless, many other diverse worlds, and face off against a new gang of enemies. The action and visuals, that reportedly include some ray-tracing, are said to be top-notch. Overall, it looks like the game, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set to be a worthy successor to the first game and a thrilling addition to the iconic, sci-fi franchise.
As a devoted fan of the Star Wars franchise and the first game in the series, I am extremely excited for the release of Jedi: Survivor. The incorporation of new fighting stances and traversal mechanics looks like it will add a fresh layer of depth to the gameplay, and the promise of a unexplored planet and characters to explore is always welcome. The visuals and action also appear to be top-notch, that is a huge plus. All in all, it looks like Jedi: Survivor is shaping up to be a must-play for fans of the series and action games in general.
