Survivor will offer a more “dark” story

In addition, the game will offer Ray Tracing on next-gen consoles.

Electronic Arts And Respawn Entertainment they officially announced last night Star Wars Jedi: Survivornew chapter of the videogame series starring Cal Kestis which will land exclusively on next-generation consoles and PCs over the next year.

And following the official announcement above, Stig Asmussen, Game Director of the American development team, said in a new interview with that Survivor will enjoy a rather massive support to the ray tracing on next-gen machines from Sony And Microsoftobviously PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S.

The story of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be darker than that of the first chapter

In fact, speaking of the new consoles, the good Asmussen stated the following:

I think the best thing about these new consoles is ray tracing. This feature in fact allowed us to create lighting in real time, at any time, with a level of fidelity far superior to anything we have done in the past. Being in real time, we can adjust the lights and immediately observe the changes.

Furthermore, not having to manually position every single light has allowed us to have more time to refine, we have more time to try new solutions, and we can get better results to make the experience even more cinematic “

The developer then also focused on the other aspects that they will render Star Wars Jedi: Survivor unique on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S:

“On top of that, the lightning-fast drives on these consoles are allowing us to load tons of content very quickly. I’ve always worked on video games with data streaming – intended as games with no uploads. These consoles have made everything even easier. In addition, on PS5 there is also support for DualSense Aptic Feedback.

Stig Asmussen finally shared some information regarding the story told in Star Wars Jedi: Survivorstating that it will be much darker than that of the first chapter, with Cal Kestis which consequently will have to face a whole series of even more severe dangers in this new title:

“As for the story, what I can tell you is that we gave the game this name because it will be all about survival. Dark times are in store for Cal and his friends, and they will do everything in their power to survive.

This could also mean that, perhaps, they will forge alliances with characters that, in other times, they would have even considered as ‘unpleasant’. And also I can tell you that some of these themes are included in the announcement trailer, but I don’t want to spoil anything “.

That said, we remind you that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will allow players to experience the adventures of Cal Kestis five years after the events recounted in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game will be released in the course of 2023 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
