While Fallen Order’s character customization options were limited to a selection of ponchos, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will have a better wardrobe.
Gameplay previews for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order‘s upcoming sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, suggest that more fashionable character customizations are coming to the game. In Fallen Order and its sequel, players take on the role of Cal Kestis, a survivor of the Jedi Purge who seeks to restore the Jedi Order. While Cal’s physical appearance isn’t customizable, his clothing is – but his wardrobe in Fallen Order falls short of the mark.
The clothing options in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order are limited to ponchos. There’s certainly some freedom of choice: players can pick from a variety of colors and patterns, ranging from Kashyyyk-chic camo to hot pink. However, all the garments have the same basic structure and fit, so even with changing hues they get a bit redundant. Thankfully, it looks like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will incorporate massive upgrades to clothing options for greater character customizability.
Cal Gets A Fancy New Bomber Jacket In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
As seen in a recent preview of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor gameplay, players will be able to find more diversified clothing – including a very fashionable bomber jacket. These character customization options in Jedi: Survivor should help keep exploration interesting in the upcoming sequel. In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, players who go off the beaten path usually find chests, most often containing cosmetic items like lightsaber customizations or new ponchos.
Lightsaber parts are always nice thanks to the in-depth weapon customization system. But scouring the galaxy for some 21 different ponchos just doesn’t scratch the same itch as Star Wars: Fallen Order’s lightsaber design mechanics. With more varied customization options in Jedi: Survivor as a reward, exploration should stay fresh and feel like less of a chore.
Clothing Options That Cal Could Wear In Jedi: Survivor
Jedi have never been known for their fashion sense – they’re almost invariably seen wearing dull, brown robes. Certain Star Wars characters have a little more flair, and Jedi: Survivor could take inspiration from their style. Space cowboy-style leather jackets, neon orange flight suits, Luke Skywalker’s iconic all-black ensemble – all of these would make worthy additions to Cal’s repertoire. It could be thematically interesting to see Cal in a more personalized Jedi robe, symbolizing his embrace of Jedi tradition in a galaxy that has all but wiped it out.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor‘s pre-order bonus cosmetics include a Han Solo vest and a gold jacket similar to the one Luke wears during the medal ceremony at the end of A New Hope. Hopefully, there are some more exciting designs included in the base game, too. Players will have to wait on the April 28, 2023, release date – and leave no stone unturned in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – to find out what new customization options are included.
