Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set five years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, making its story fall around the same time as the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. The story follows Jedi Knight Cal Kestis (Cameron Monaghan), as he seeks to survive against the hostile Galactic Empire. Respawn says that Kestis must do «whatever it takes to stay alive» as one of the few surviving Jedi after Order 66. Among his newest adversaries is a mysterious Pau’an Imperial senator on Coruscant who makes a dangerous deal of sorts.
Stig Asmussen claimed real-time ray tracing and other next-gen capabilities enable Respawn to operate «at a quality that’s much above anything that we’ve ever developed before.» By exclusively targeting ninth-generation consoles, Survivor will enjoy significantly faster load times with a development team that is no longer obligated to support the older PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles the first game launched on.
