Few had high hopes for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order when it released in 2019, as publisher EA had previously really struggled to get the most out of the Star Wars license and developer Respawn had never worked on a game before of this kind (and it was also very busy with Apex Legends). However, it was a humongous success and many people are now looking forward to its sequel. But is Star Wars Jedi: Survivor get to Xbox Game Pass?
The answer is Yes indeed, but not at launch and only for those with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, a pricier tier of Game Pass that costs $14.99/£10.99 per month. Players who subscribe to Ultimate also get access to the entire EA Play catalog on Xbox, which includes most of EA’s modern published games, for the same price. However, EA’s games aren’t added on day one like Xbox’s first-party exclusives for Game Pass, but are typically added to EA Play 6 to 12 months after their initial launch date.
With Star Wars Jedi: Survivor set to have a March launch date, don’t expect it to make its way to Game Pass until late 2023 at the earliest, though those things depend on how big a game’s success it is (or isn’t). If Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sells even more copies than its predecessor, it will be a long time before it lands on Game Pass so that this revenue stream can be maximized.
About Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the direct sequel to 2019’s Fallen Order and will follow many of the same gameplay beats, with Cal Kestis no longer just a Padawan.
Set five years after the events of Fallen Order, Survivor will follow Cal as one of the last surviving Jedi trying to protect himself and the rest of the galaxy from the Empire. You’ll also explore more worlds than ever before with a wider array of abilities at your disposal, with even more ways to traverse each one. The early trailers have highlighted a mysterious figure submerged in a bacta tank, but it’s not yet clear who that is – and how they’ll react to being awakened by Cal.
One thing seems to stay the same though: BD-1, your friendly little drone sidekick, will still be by your side.
In terms of gameplay, Survivor is reminiscent of classic Metroidvania crossed with the intentional cinematic combat of the Soulsborne games, although Fallen Order will be far less punishing. Players can expect to upgrade Cal’s forces over the course of the extensive single player campaign while uncovering all sorts of new areas and mysteries in exotic worlds.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is scheduled for release on March 17, 2023 for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X & S.
