It has been a year of continuous high-profile releases, and if you’re interested in getting one of the biggest games of the year before the blockbuster season starts in October, then take a look at this offer on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. A direct sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from 2019, Survivor for PS5 and Xbox Series X is currently on sale for only $40 at GameStop. These are completely new physical copies as well, allowing you to once again use the lightsaber and Force powers of Cal Kestis at a $30 discount. Amazon was matching this offer but is currently out of stock for both platforms.
Best Buy also has discounted copies of the game–which usually sells for $70–but you’ll be paying a bit more here in case GameStop runs out of stock. At this retailer, you’ll be paying $50 for a copy, but that’s still a significant savings compared to its regular MSRP. Additionally, Best Buy offers free shipping at this price, while GameStop requires customers to spend $79 or more for free shipping. Therefore, those who can place their order online and pick up the game at a GameStop store will get the best deal here, if you only want to purchase Survivor.
Similar to Fallen Order, Survivor is essentially a Star Wars metroidvania played from a third-person perspective. It enhances the original game with several well-thought-out improvements. Kestis possesses new abilities that truly make him feel like a genuine Jedi Knight, and he takes part in an expansive story that unfolds across the war-torn galaxy.
“Thrilling lightsaber combat and platforming puzzle challenges that defy physics continue to be the highlights of Respawn’s latest Star Wars game, but Survivor also takes bold steps with its narrative this time around,” Jordan Ramée stated in GameSpot’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor review. “Cal’s journey takes him to new corners of the galaxy, but the most captivating journey he embarks on is an introspective one. Survivor is an exceptionally well-crafted story about conquering fear, and it’s the Jedi tale I’ve longed for.”
