Released on April 28, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is soon to become available for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. 

The first footage released was for a sequence called Meditation Chamber. This shows how the protagonist uses his powers to activate subsequent passages in the environment. It is quite impressive to experience the puzzles in motion, and this footage did just that. 

The second video released by IGN Fest focused on combat. It showed how the different fighting stances, of which there are to be five in the game, perform during clashes. The amalgamation of fluid movements and powerful strikes looks astounding.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and offers a blend of action and RPG elements. It is a story-driven single-player game where the player must help Cal Kestis survive the relentless pursuit of the Empire. The player needs to make use of both close-combat and ranged-attack tactics to progress through the game and discover the mysteries of the Force. 

Throughout the game, the player obtains new abilities and powers that can be used to solve environmental puzzles and gain access to secret areas. The game also features enemy-scaling, allowing even the most experienced Jedi to be challenged by foes.

In conclusion, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is sure to be an action-filled and thrilling experience for all Star Wars fans. The new gameplay footage from IGN Fest showed us a sneak peek of what we can expect from the game when it releases on April 28.
