Last night at The Game Awards, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor debuted its first gameplay trailer, and it looked pretty freaking radical, even for someone like me who didn’t necessarily love the first game.
In addition to the new trailer, the game’s official release date and pre-order details were also unveiled. The game will launch on March 17, 2023 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X\S. There will be a Deluxe and Standard versions of the game, with the former including two additional cosmetic packs over the latter. These include skins that give Cal a Han Solo like kit, and a Luke Skywalker Yavin Celebration kit. Both editions will get the Jedi Survivor Obi-Wan Kenobi kits if pre-ordered as well.
Official blurbs and new screens can be found below.
