Jedi: Survivor follows Cal Kestus who has grown since the last game, Jedi: Fallen Order, and has gone through growth in his powers and his patience in The Force. Reprising his role, Cameron Monaghan stars via his motion capture as a young Jedi who is no longer in training but is opening up his world to bigger and better things.
Over the past 10 years, EA has had a few bright moments but a few down moments with the EA exclusivity deal, including Battlefront and Battlefront II. While fans of Star Wars have struggled with great games since Lucas Arts was shut down, the Jedi games are a bright spot on the dark side of Star Wars gaming.
While complaints from console players as far as technical issues have been minimal, many PC players are having issues as the game requires a massive 8gb dedicated VRAM and a high clock speed. This being said, the game has been running smoothly for most gamers since the March, 2023 launch.
As gaming has become more expensive, developers have been pushing towards getting games out faster rather than the quality of games and fans of the genre have been hyped for the new Star Wars: Outlaws game from Bethesda, the same studio that brought us games like the Fallout series and the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
The future is looking good for Star Wars gaming!
