Steam tells me I’ve been taking part in Respawn’s new Star Wars sport, Fallen Order sequel Jedi Survivor, for practically 20 hours now. I’ve barely gotten into it in that point—and never as a result of Survivor is a vastly bigger game than its predecessor, although it is indeed that. It’s as a result of I can not cease dressing up, and taking footage of, its hero, Cal Kestis.
Survivor is expansive in ways in which make Fallen Order really feel nearly quaintly small compared, however one of the vital enjoyable methods it goes past the unique is that it’s, at its coronary heart, a dolly dress-up sport for Star Wars followers—the varieties of people that would inform themselves as some type of perceived menace to their id that they’d by no means play dolly dress-up, however completely will when mentioned dolly is a Jedi Knight who appears like Cameron Monaghan from Gotham. Beforehand, Fallen Order allowed gamers to customise Cal in varied, albeit restricted methods—you can tweak elements of his lightsaber to your coronary heart’s content material, however Cal himself was restricted to picking between totally different ponchos and between varied colorations of his default gear.
Jedi Survivor, however, goes above and past this. Not solely are Cal’s garments changeable—damaged down into particular person mixed-and-matched classes of jackets and high layers, undershirts, and trousers, after which varied colorways—however Cal himself may be given a trim and shave via varied hair and facial hair types present in your travels exploring the galaxy. With lots of upon hundred of potential mixtures, and that’s even earlier than you get into all of the permutations your weapons and even droid companion BD-1 also can have, for me not less than it means Jedi Survivor is now not a sport a few lone warrior’s battle towards the rise of the Empire, however one which asks me an essential query: can I make the prettiest Cal Kestis the galaxy has ever seen, after which take a lot of fancy images of him like I’m conducting a digital Vogue cowl shoot for the holonet?
The reply, in my 20 hours of “taking part in” up to now, is a powerful sure, as you’ll see from the gallery of hooked up screenshots from my shoots throughout the galaxy far, distant. However what about you? What has your Cal Kestis regarded like as you’ve progressed via Jedi Survivor’s story—and has deciding that look rooted you in choice paralysis as a lot because it has me?
