I can officially say I have beaten the story for #StarWarsJediSurvivor and it was the greatest gaming experience of my life overall. Fallen Order and Survivor's story is honestly my favorite Star Wars content this last decade. What an incredible journey I could play… pic.twitter.com/MtFSH22OjA

The success of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which earned goodwill in the Star Wars fandom, has laid a strong foundation for the first lightsaber-focused action-adventure game in the modern era. As a result, the fans expected a lot from Jedi Survivor and were hopeful that it would deliver an exceptional gaming experience that lived up to their expectations.
- The fans expected a compelling storyline, visually stunning graphics, and beautiful environments to explore. Gamers expected smooth and responsive gameplay mechanics, challenging puzzles, and combat as well.
They wanted more action against Imperial Enemies and less against the local wildlife.
Fans wanted new Lightsaber customization options and combat features and sequences that would test their Lightsaber skills.
Even if it’s just for cosmetic purposes, gamers always appreciate some degree of character customization. However, the customization options for Cal in Fallen Order were somewhat lacking, which made them wish for more Cosmetic Character Customization in the sequel.

How Jedi Survivor is setting the stage for future Star Wars titles

Its release has shown a strong demand among Star Wars fans for well-made games with engaging storylines, exciting gameplay, and stunning visuals.
