Respawn confirmed somewhat extra of upcoming sci-fi Soulslike Star Wars: Jedi Survivor at The Game Awards earlier this month, however they didn’t point out that you simply’ll be capable to tame the galaxy’s beasts and experience them. In an interview with Game Informer, Jedi Survivor’s director Stig Asmussen mentioned a few of the options that distinguish the motion RPG from its predecessor Fallen Order, together with mounts and new combating stances for Cal Kestis’ trusty lightsaber.
Along with a brand new ascension cable that should be a reference to those utilized by troopers through the Clone Wars, Kestis will be capable to tame and experience mounts. Asmussen doesn’t say which of the Star Wars galaxy’s wacky beasts will probably be rideable in Jedi Survivor, however I’m holding out hope for Episode II: Attack Of The Clones’ huge, honking varactyl lizard. We’ve already seen one other Jedi using a kind of, so it’s solely attainable that Kestis may occur throughout a pleasant varactyl on his Metroidvania jaunt.
Asmussen additionally talked about 5 combating stances that Kestis can undertake to sort out totally different enemy sorts. This appears like an developed tackle the stances from Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, however chucking in additional lore from the previous twenty years. Together with a lightsaber and blaster combo stance, and a dual-bladed lightsaber that allows you to swoosh about like Darth Maul, Kestis can have a go together with Kylo Ren’s heavy stance and crossguard lasertorch. Asmussen recommends being cautious with that one, because the “timing home windows are longer”.
Star Wars: Jedi Survivor is coming to Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the EA App For Windows on March seventeenth, 2023. Hopefully, I’ll have gotten that Destiny’s Child track out of my head by then.
