Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Introduces Nvidia DLSS Support for Enhanced Gaming

Celebrate Star Wars Day with a Free Trial of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on Xbox Game Pass

As Star Wars Day approaches, excitement is building not just for the festivities but also for unique gaming opportunities. This year, Microsoft is offering Xbox Game Pass subscribers a thrilling gift: a five-hour free trial of “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor,” the much-anticipated sequel to 2019’s “Jedi: Fallen Order.” This special promotion was announced on the Xbox Wire blog on May 2 and is set to run until the night of May 5.

Trial Details and Availability

From now until 11:59 p.m. PT on May 5, all Xbox Game Pass subscribers can enjoy early access to “Jedi: Survivor.” This trial is available to subscribers of all tiers, ensuring that anyone with a Game Pass can partake in the action. Although the trial is limited to five hours, it offers a generous glimpse into the game’s expansive universe, allowing players to immerse themselves in the continuing adventures of Cal Kestis as he fights against the Galactic Empire.

Game Features and Storyline

“Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” picks up five years after the events of “Jedi: Fallen Order.” Players return to the role of Cal Kestis, now a seasoned Jedi Knight, as he continues his saga fighting alongside rebellion sentinel Saw Gerrera. The game promises an enriched combat system with various Force powers and customizable lightsabers at your disposal. Players will navigate through enemy lines, parrying and dodging attacks from Stormtroopers, Sith Lords, and new alien threats.

According to a review by Kotaku, the game enhances every aspect that made its predecessor a hit. The characters are more developed, the conflicts more engaging, and the level design exhibits a depth that fans of Metroidvania-style games will appreciate. The combat system, in particular, offers a diversity that will likely captivate the combo video community for a long time.

Continuation of Gaming After the Trial

While it is currently unclear if the progress from the trial will carry over to the full game, subscribers with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate have ongoing access to EA Play, which includes “Jedi: Survivor.” This means that even after the trial ends, Ultimate members can continue playing without interruption.

Additional Entertainment Options

Alongside the “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” trial, Microsoft is also offering a free trial of “Headbangers: Rhythm Royale.” This casual multiplayer party game provides a lighthearted alternative, perfect for enjoying with friends over the Star Wars Day weekend.


As we near May 4, “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor” stands out as a must-try for fans of the franchise and action-adventure enthusiasts alike. With its deep narrative, refined gameplay, and the special free trial offer, there’s no better time to jump into the rich world that Respawn Entertainment has crafted. Whether you’re a seasoned Star Wars gamer or a newcomer to the universe, this trial offers a perfect way to celebrate Star Wars Day with a lightsaber in hand.

May the fourth be with you, and enjoy your journey with Cal Kestis and company as you explore the depths of a galaxy far, far away.
