2019 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order ended up being a far bigger success than anyone could have expected, and years later remains notable for being one of the few recent star wars games so as not to have any real baggage attached to them. Its sequel, jedi survivor, hits in 2023, and now that it’s a known hit, Lucasfilm and EA are going to give it a bigger boost. And you know what it means: a linked novel.
Friday, the Star Wars website revealed the upcoming novel, Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars. Written by Sam Maggs (Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Call of Duty: Vanguard), the novel will see Cal Kestis and the rest of the Stinger Mantis team embark on an adventure between Fallen order and Survivor. Since the first trailer for Survivor obviously didn’t feature the Mantis crew at all, except for Cal and his droid friend BD-1, so maybe this book will lay the groundwork for that split, whether in forced circumstances or a natural erosion of crew friendship. Expect it to arrive on March 7, 2023.
