Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a thrilling sci-fi action RPG and sequel to the critically acclaimed video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, has recently hit the gaming world like a storm. It has been months since its release, and a lot of fans are still begging and dying to know, “Will there be a DLC for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor?”. Currently, there are no official announcements for a DLC, but fans are speculating and wishing for a new release. Here’s what we know:
Official Statements and DLC Speculations
At this moment, there have been no official announcements or confirmations regarding a DLC for Respawn Entertainment’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The previous installment in the series, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, sadly did not receive any DLC content. This made fans doubtful that there would be any news of a DLC being released for the sequel. However, it’s still worth noting that the gaming industry is full of surprises. The absence of past DLC doesn’t necessarily dictate the future.
To gauge the likelihood of having a DLC for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, it’s essential to examine Respawn Entertainment’s track record with their downloadable content in previous games.
Bonus Content and Cosmetic Items
Luckily, the developers steer clear of “pay to win” monetization with their multiplayer titles, such as Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends. Instead, they’ve focused more on allowing players to purchase cosmetic items, outfits, and new character models. This approach has also extended to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, where the deluxe editions and add-ons unlocked special cosmetics for the Stinger Mantis ship and BD-1, the droid companion.
The current deluxe edition of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor continues this trend by offering players similar cosmetics. This tells us that Respawn Entertainment may not be planning a paid story campaign DLC for the game, which is similar to their past games. Here’s what the game offers:
- Pre-Order Bonuses: As is common knowledge with modern games, those who pre-ordered Star Wars Jedi: Survivor were treated to various cosmetic items and bonuses. These exclusive items allow players to have more freedom to customize their experience and immerse themselves further in the Star Wars universe.
- Deluxe Edition: The deluxe edition is for fans who love additional skins and cosmetics that have iconic characters such as Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. This edition provides a unique opportunity to combine your gameplay with a touch of the iconic characters from the movie it is based on.
But for now, the development team’s primary focus appears to be on addressing performance issues in the game, particularly on the PC and PS5 platforms. Their top priority is ensuring a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience for all players and fans of the game.
We Can Still Hope
While the absence of official DLC news may seem discouraging, there’s always room for optimism. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is very popular, and if the demand for additional content is still strong, the developers might consider expanding the game and releasing a DLC.
Fans of the game can rest assured that we will continue to keep an eye out and watch for any updates or announcements regarding Star Wars Jedi: Survivor DLC.
The Theme of Struggle in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
One of the central themes in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is winning small victories against overwhelming odds. Cal Kestis, the game’s protagonist, struggles with the realization that he cannot single-handedly tear down the Galactic Empire or defeat Darth Vader. Despite this, he still finds meaning in his actions, even if it’s small on an interstellar scale. This theme of “doing what you can” might also be the main theme of the upcoming DLC for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The DLC might also introduce new lightsaber stances, guerrilla warfare activities, sabotage missions, prison breaks, grand heists, and more. These additions could complement the game’s story and align perfectly with the story of Cal Kestis.
Respawn Entertainment’s Upcoming Projects
While the likelihood of having a DLC for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor would be an amazing idea. there’s another factor to consider—Respawn Entertainment’s involvement in other Star Wars projects. An official announcement on the Electronic Arts website revealed that Respawn, in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, is currently developing two other Star Wars games.
Game Director Peter Hirschmann is involved with Star Wars first-person shooter, and Greg Foerstch and the Bit Reactor studio are working on a new Star Wars strategy game. With these ambitious titles in the works, it raises questions about Respawn Entertainment’s budget and staffing capacity to focus on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor DLC.
Given their commitments to these other projects, the odds of additional content for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor may be slimmer than some fans would hope.
While fans eagerly await the potential expansion of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor through DLC, several factors come into play. Respawn Entertainment’s history with DLC, the game’s opportunity for additional content, and the developer’s involvement in other Star Wars projects all play a role in creating the future of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Honestly, we are not sure as well. Only time will tell if the galaxy will let us have DLC to this amazing game.
