Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a sequel to the famous Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It is set 5 years after the events of its prequel. In the Star Wars timeline, the plot is running 9 years before the events of A New Hope. In this game, we revisit the events of the fight of Cal Kestis against the Empire. 

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order ended when Cal demolished the Holocron along with its data. The Holocron contained the locations of all the force-sensitive children in the empire. He did it to stop the regular sacrificing of the children to the Empire. The story of the game revolves around Cal’s fight against the empire after this event.

In the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor plot, Cal is one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy according to. Moreover, he is now a full-fledged Jedi Knight who will face many dangerous challenges to keep to protect himself and his crew. Cal will be actively facing the Empire now and fighting dangerous enemies, from inquisitors to bounty hunters.

According to Stig Asmussen’s interview, who is the game’s director, the lightsaber of Cal falls into the hand of an imperial senator. The enemy made a lightsaber wielder to track down Cal in return for the sword, but he seems to have escaped this chase. Since Cal’s sword is not with him, he is seen incorporating different fighting styles.

Although we do not know many details about the plot, we expect it to be exciting as it is evident that Cal will be undergoing great action against the powerful Empire, former Jedi, and other dangerous creatures. Not to forget, Cal will also be commandeering an imperial gunship.


The story is darker and more intense as compared to its prequel. Moreover, the time frame is the same as in the Obi-Wan Kenobi show, as the grand inquisitor from the show will also be pursuing Cal Kestis. Also, there are rumors of Darth Vader being included in the game.

From everything we know about the plot of the game, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is set on the city planet Coruscant. Furthermore, you get to see various beautiful shots of the Imperial Capital throughout the trailer. We also see in the main story trailer that Cal and his companions have found a new shelter during their escape, one which is beyond the reach of the Empire.

Similar to shrines from The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, Jedi Puzzle Chambers are scattered around many planets. These are fun-to-take optional puzzles that will reward you by boosting your stats and abilities.

  • Moreover, Mantis undergoes a crash landing when Cal and his companion BD-1 are still wandering in the galaxy.

From everything we know about the plot of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, there are two characters who play as the main antagonists in the game.


Rayvis is a large Gen’Dai alien who will be the enemy in the story. He believes that the existence of the Jedi is shouldn’t be there, which makes him the main antagonist. Although this is Rayvis’s first appearance in the Star Wars franchise, the Gen’Dai genre is well known. Unlike other races, they are not mortal. Moreover, they are boneless, making them lack a proper form. To make themselves acquire a human-like form, they wear armor.

Though unaware of the aims of Rayvis, he will be taking an active role against Cal due to their unique philosophy of the Gen’Dai race. Furthermore, he will be causing a lot of problems for Cal, as it is very difficult to defeat him, as Gen’Dai can respawn from damages.

The Mysterious Antagonist 

As we see from the trailer, you will be facing a High Republic Jedi as an enemy. You can see the High Republic insignia in front of his golden robes. This character is seen along with Rayvis after his release from the Bacta Tank. He is not satisfied with the Jedi Order being fallen back to the empire.

Though we do not know the details of this character till now, it seems that this silver-haired character plays a significant role against Cal. Keep following our website to know more as we get near to the game’s release.
