Is Darth Vader in Jedi Survivor? – Answered

Fallen Order Vader didn't go so well.

Cal and Cere have faced off against Darth Vader before when they infiltrated the Inquisitor Fortress at the end of Fallen Order, and as expected, it didn’t go so well. Jedi Survivor takes place just five years after the events of Fallen Order, and that means the Empire is stronger than ever.

But Darth Vader is busy during this time, which we can clearly see from the recent Obi-Wan Kenobi series that takes place during the same year as Jedi Survivor. We’ll go over whether Vader appears or not in the latest game, but beware of spoilers and turn back now if you don’t want to see any.

Jedi Survivor – Does Darth Vader Make an Appearance?

The short answer is yes, Darth Vader does appear in Jedi Survivor, and this time you get a much better boss fight that does the Sith Lord some justice. His appearance in Fallen Order was just as fitting due to his power, but Cal and Cere are far too weak to fight him at that point in time. They can only run away.

What was most surprising about the latest Vader encounter is that Cal has nothing to do with it. Vader makes his appearance toward the end of the game during the major battle on Jedha. Cal is incapacitated, and while the Mantis crew prepares to leave, Cere heads back to secure the remaining Hidden Path contact codes.

As expected, Cere wouldn’t have an easy journey. Anything would have been easier to deal with than Darth Vader slamming through the door, though. Cere is much stronger at this point, so she puts up a good fight. We know that’s not enough though, and Vader’s appearance in Jedi Survivor is an imposing one. He’s not the final boss, but he’s certainly one of the most memorable.
