The Best Star Wars Games to Play After Jedi: Survivor
Now that you’ve played Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you might be wanting to keep the Star Wars game train going. Luckily, there are over 100 different Star Wars video games out there. That sort of variety can be a bit intimidating, so here are five of the best Star Wars games that you can play right now.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic I & II (Nintendo Switch, PC, & Mobile)
The two Knights of the Old Republic games are some of the most acclaimed Star Wars games of the bunch. The two titles come from role-playing game royalty, with Bioware (Mass Effect) behind the first title and Obsidian (Fallout: New Vegas) being behind the second.
Both games feature riveting stories that delve into the themes of Star Wars without ever leaning too hard on nostalgia, as they take place nearly 4000 years before the movies. The round-based combat can feel a tad dated, but the atmosphere, narratives, and morality system — which lets you choose whether you’ll be a righteous Jedi, a wicked Sith lord, or something in-between — make both Knights of the Old Republic games more than worth playing.
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (PS4, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, & PC)
While this one is technically the fourth game in the Jedi Knight series, you don’t really need to have played any of the previous titles in the series to have a great time. In Jedi Academy, you take on the role of a young Jedi who is set to attend Luke Skywalker’s Jedi school on Yavin IV. The gameplay is far more action-oriented, and players are able to customize their lightsaber and powers, choosing to either err on the dark or light side of the Force, with the story changing slightly depending on your alignment.
Lightsaber combat in video games has rarely matched the sheer fun of Jedi Academy’s, which nails the feeling of using the iconic weapon against foes. If that’s not enough for you, there’s an incredibly fun multiplayer mode where you can brawl with opponents and put your avatar to the test, and plenty of mods to do things like relive battles from the movies. Since it originally came out in 2003, even the rereleases aren’t too expensive, making this an economically-friendly option for your next Star Wars game.
Star Wars: Squadrons (PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, & PC)
If you’re a fan of space combat, Star Wars: Squadrons is the way to go. The game gives you the ability to fly some of the most memorable ships from Star Wars, from X-Wings and TIE Fighters to B-Wings and TIE Defenders, as you battle enemy forces from a first-person perspective.
The story has players experience both the Empire and the New Republic’s points of view as they befriend members of both sides as two different characters and meet a couple of fan-favorite characters. Star Wars: Squadrons even features an optional VR mode for those who wish to be completely immersed in their space dogfights. If you enjoyed the classic Star Wars: TIE Fighter and Star Wars: X-Wing games, this is definitely for you.
Star Wars Battlefront II (PS4, Xbox One, & PC)
Though the game certainly had a rough launch with some poor choices, Star Wars Battlefront II has shaped up and become a thoroughly enjoyable first-person shooter for fans of any and all of Star Wars’ eras. Though the single-player story is weak overall, the multiplayer is a blast for fans of the franchise.
Players can assume the role of many different kinds of troopers from across Star Wars’ history, including Clone Troopers, Stormtroopers, and Rebels, as well as beloved characters like Darth Maul, Princess Leia, Kylo Ren, and more. If you’re interested in a team-based shooter that celebrates the series, Battlefront II is a strong pick.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, & PC)
Finally, we have the most recent release on the list. TT Games’ latest take on the Star Wars universe is absolutely chock-full of content and features a new combat system that sets the title apart from all previous Lego games. All nine movies from across the main Star Wars saga are covered and filled with Lego charm, making for a unique take on the story.
The game celebrates every corner of Star Wars’ long cinematic history, as it includes famous and obscure characters alike. You can explore a wide range of planets from the series, which all have their own impressively-sized hubs to explore for secrets and unlockables. This is the sort of game that Star Wars fans of any age or intensity can sit back and have fun with — especially if you have a friend to mess around with.
