What is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor about?
Talking about the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Respawn’s Stig Asmussen, director of both Jedi: Fallen Order and Jedi: Survivor games, said that the game will focus on Padawan survivor of Order 66, Cal Kestis, and his loyal droid, BD-1.
“You’ve got Force powers, lightsabers. You have all these different worlds and planets that you can travel to, established characters that everybody understands and has expectations for. That’s all there,” Asmussen said talking about the game.
“But you have to make sure, while you’re using these tools, that you’re building something that works with them and fits with them, and that’s where it becomes somewhat complicated, because you’re making mechanics that feel fun for the game, but they also have to feel right for Star Wars,” he added.

Another game that was launched at the Star Wars event is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lord. This game is a sequel to sequel to the classic Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and it will hit Nintendo Switch on June 8.
