Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – Mastering the Skill Tree Requires More Than Just the Main Story!

In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, players need to go beyond the main storyline to fully develop the skill tree, unlike its predecessor Jedi: Fallen Order.


In an interview with Game Rant, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor director Stig Asmussen discussed the changes in the skill tree since Fallen Order. The skill tree in Jedi: Fallen Order could be easily maxed out before completing the main quests, but this will not be the case in Jedi: Survivor. Asmussen mentioned that players frequently requested more story and content outside of the main path, and Jedi: Survivor is built upon that request.

It’s not surprising that Jedi: Survivor is larger than its predecessor, as this is true for most sequels, but it’s good to see the developers’ passion for expanding the entire world, not just the core story. The skill tree in Jedi: Survivor offers much more depth and variety than the one in Fallen Order, partly due to Cal’s new combat stances, but the main story alone won’t be enough to unlock everything. However, Asmussen emphasizes that players can reach a point where they acquire all skills; they just need to invest more in the game.

Asmussen explained: “We didn’t do the economy the same way we did in Fallen Order,” so players will have to explore beyond the main story to unlock everything. Of course, all gamers are different, and Jedi: Survivor keeps this in mind. A new difficulty level is introduced between medium and very easy, plenty of exploration options, more story elements in the world, and more opportunities to utilize Jedi: Survivor’s combat system.

According to Asmussen, “the game is bigger, and there are more opportunities to engage with things beyond the main quest. Much more than the first game.” They also inquired about specific post-game concepts, such as more challenging bosses, common in soulslike games like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. For example, the character Malenia from Elden Ring posed a significant challenge to the community, with some players taking hundreds of attempts to defeat her. In response to this, Asmussen said, “I don’t want to answer that specifically because I don’t want to spoil the macro design of the game.”

How Respawn Entertainment will expand its Star Wars universe remains to be seen, but adding more story content and other options will likely contribute greatly to how Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is received by players in the end.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches on April 28, 2023, for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
