If you’re craving some Jedi adventure, then this Star Wars Jedi: Survivor early Black Friday Deal is for you. Over at Amazon (US), you can snag Cal Kestis’s lightsaber-swinging adventure for just $34.99, a full 50% off the launch price.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor picks up some time after the end of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Rogue Jedi Cal Kestis is doing his best to be a thorn in the Empire’s side. That might seem like a bad idea, given that it could bring Darth Vader down on him but Kestis is pretty determined.
We’re a little surprised that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the subject of a Black Friday Sale. It’s been out for barely half a year and it’s a very, very high profile title. GameSensor estimates that it sold $52 million in copies during its first month and it hasn’t done EA’s profit margin any harm.
But it’s an absolutely brilliant game, with a Cal Kestis who’s less wooden this time around. In our review we called it “..a must-play for any Star Wars fan, and it leaves us excited about what’s next for Cal Kestis.”
It takes the original’s third-person Star Wars shenanigans and dials it up to 11. Cal has multiple fighting stances including, for the first time, one where he uses a blaster. And while it’s not open world in the same sense as, say, Grand Theft Auto 5. But you can roam a little and revisit planets. In fact, some of the secrets you can unlock require some to and fro. There’s a Metroidvania element too, with some routes blocked off till you’ve got the right power.
EA/Respawn have advertised for people to work on a third entry, though they haven’t announced the game officially. So, now’s a great time to catch up. This Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Black Friday deal is available on both Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, at least until the deal runs out.
