In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Cal Kestis embarks on his second adventure throughout the galaxy. The game takes place approximately five years after the events of it’s predecessor, and Cal has joined forces with Saw Gerrera to attempt to overthrow the Empire once and for all, indicating that little has changed.
Similar to its predecessor, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor restricts its players to saving their progress only at specific points. Although the game will occasionally save Cal’s progress automatically, these instances are scarce, and players should make a habit of manually saving the game whenever possible.
How To Save Your Progress
In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, players will gain the ability to save their progress early on when they discover the first Meditation Point in the Rooftops area of the Coruscant Undercity. To save Cal’s progress, players need to interact with any Meditation Points they encounter while advancing through the story.
If Cal loses all his health, the player must choose the “Respawn” option displayed on the screen. This action will send Cal back to the last Meditation Point he used, and the progress made after that point will typically be lost.
Fortunately, players can find Meditation Points throughout each planet Cal explores. However, moving between them can take a considerable amount of time if the fast-travel ability has not yet been unlocked.
By interacting with objects in the game world, players can create shortcuts back to previously used Meditation Points. Retracing one’s steps after finding a shortcut might be the only way to save the game at certain junctures, so players should thoroughly investigate each area they visit to find a shortcut if they’re concerned about Cal’s survival in an upcoming section.
What Are Meditation Points?
Meditation Points primarily serve to allow players to save their progress, but they also offer additional functions. Players can restore Cal’s health and Force at the cost of respawning defeated enemies, unlock new skills, and alter or inspect Cal’s weapon stances. As the story progresses, more options, such as fast-travel, become accessible.
How To Auto-Save
Meditation Points provide the most dependable way to save progress in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, although the game does auto-save at different points throughout the story. Relying solely on auto-saves can be highly risky, as they might sometimes send Cal back to a level’s start if he hasn’t engaged with any Meditation Points. There are a few exceptions, but it’s generally wise to save through a Meditation Point whenever possible.
