When Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order released in 2019, it served as a moment of salvation for Star Wars fans begging for an enjoyable single-player game. The fanbase had already endured a handful of project cancelations and disappointments, but Respawn Entertainment delivered in almost every conceivable way. Over the last few years, the next hurdle has been topping that success, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has met that challenge with an engaging story, tight gameplay, and deep customization systems. Now, many fans are wondering what's next after Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

Respawn has already teased that it would like the Star Wars Jedi games to become a trilogy, but there could be an opportunity in expanding the content within Survivor. Cal and company went through an enormous amount of change throughout Survivor, contending with their place in the galaxy and attempting to carve out a new path for themselves. The game's customizations also emerged as a standout feature, allowing players to tailor Cal however they want from his outfit to his lightsaber. All of these features could inspire a treasure trove of DLC, and Respawn would be leaving money on the table by not capitalizing on it.

New Story DLC in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was filled with high highs and low lows for Cal Kestis and the Mantis crew. Throughout his adventure for the lost world of Tanalorr, Cal in particular was forced to contend with his fight against the Empire, his relationship with the Force, and the betrayal of a close ally. This leaves him a very different Jedi after Star Wars Jedi: Survivor's ending, and many fans have questions about what's next for the third game in the series. Story DLC for Jedi: Survivor could answer some of these questions, while still leaving doors open for rich storytelling in the future.

Two of the biggest questions left by the end of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor include what Cal, Merrin, and Greez are going to do now that they have access to Tanalorr, and how Cal will manage his dark side impulses. Tanalorr was meant to be a safe haven for those persecuted by the Empire, and a story DLC could show Cal and company saving people across the galaxy. This could also be an excuse to introduce new planets to Jedi: Survivor, offering more diverse environments to explore. These new stories could also show Cal managing the dark side of the force in Star Wars, with Merrin guiding him back to the light as she did before.

New Customization DLC in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

One area that Respawn expanded on from Fallen Order was customization, and it did so with tremendous gusto. Players were able to change almost every part of Cal's outfit, and every component of his lightsaber and blaster, with numerous options to choose from. This has proven to be a standout feature among many fans, and there are more than enough opportunities for DLC cosmetics. Whether it's new lightsaber blade colors or hilt pieces based on iconic Jedi from Star Wars history, Respawn could stand to make a lot of money off a few inexpensive cosmetic packs.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has been a resounding success for those looking for an expansion to Fallen Order's foundation. Respawn has increased the scale of the franchise in almost every conceivable way, and the way it has expanded both the story and customization create many opportunities for DLC. The developer is sure to save a lot of things for the next Star Wars Jedi game, but for the time being, it would be wise to consider additional expansions for fans hungry for more. With that sustained financial support, the third game in the series could be bigger and better than even Survivor.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is available now on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
