Survivor Brings Back The Best Clone War Droids
If, like me, you’re a big fan of animation Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, then I have some very good news for you. As seen for the first time in a new gameplay video released earlier this week, a lot of classics clone wars-Era Droids will be featured in EA and Respawn’s forthcoming Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivordiscontinued a few years later Jedi: Fallen Order, again stars Cal Kestis. The red-haired Jedi was a young Padawan when Order 66 happened and the Order was almost immediately wiped out by the clones they had once fought alongside during the war. Well, after the events of Fallen Order, Cal has reconnected with the Force, got his Jedi groove back, and even made some new friends he calls family. But this is war of stars, so they can’t relax and slurp blue milk. Instead, they face a whole new threat and villains in Respawn’s upcoming (and recently delayed) Consequence. Hey, it’s not all bad news. At least our favorite clinker from the clone wars will be around, ready to be sliced and diced by Cal and his cool lightsaber moves.
As revealed in a new IGN Article, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor contains a number of well-known droids that clone wars Fans and prequel lovers will notice immediately.
All the clone wars Droids in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Of course, the classic, fan-favorite B1 Battle Droids are also included. These are the idiot grunts that are often seen making jokes and dying by the dozen in the animated series. And based on some of the new gameplay we’ve seen, B1s will fill a similar role survivor.
G/O Media may receive a commission
Also included in the new game are B2 Super Battle Droids, the larger, more powerful cousins of the B1 that were introduced attack of the Clone warriors So the Jedi did indeed have a formidable enemy to fight.
Next we have them BX Commando Droids. These are the smarter siblings of the B1 and B2 droids, capable of creating traps and tricking clones with advanced tactics. They are also more agile. According to the developers, these droids often parry Cal’s attacks, making them a difficult opponent.
In case you were wondering if Droidekas aka Destroyer Droids were included Jedi: Survivor, well, they are! And not only that, the developers have also confirmed it IGN that these rolling bastards will have shields, just like in the movies and clone wars show.
IG-100 Magna Droids will also appear in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. These big boys were notoriously seen as General Grievous’ protectors, and the developers aptly described these robotic warriors as “superior elite” foes who will attack, defend, parry, and counter everythingmaking her one of the tougher enemies Cal will face.
Finally we have the DT Sentry droid. This type of killer robot is not from the clone warsbut from the sequel shows Bad batch And rebels. They have also appeared in comics. This DT Sentry Droids are very, very tough. In survivor, they will come in different variants, with some using a rocket launcher and others using blasters or melee weapons. But all of them will be big brutes who can survive the loss of a limb or two and will possibly be one of the toughest enemies Cal will have to fight over the course of the game.
The real question now is why these droids are in the game at all. Based on their paint jobs and proximity to some nasty criminals, it appears a large gang has been reusing leftover droids from the clone wars and built a decent little robo army. That sounds great to me because killing droids is not only fun, it also doesn’t make me think the canonical and ancestral implications attached to her death. Robots aren’t connected to the light side of the Force, so swing away and hack ’em to pieces, Cal!
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches April 27 for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
