The Force is strong with this Star Wars deal.

It has been a year of non-stop high-profile releases, and if you're looking to grab one of the biggest games of the year before October's blockbuster season begins, then check out this deal on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. A direct sequel to 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Survivor for PS5 and Xbox Series X is currently on sale for just $40 at GameStop. These are brand-new physical copies as well, allowing you to once again wield the lightsaber and Force powers of Cal Kestis at a $30 discount. Amazon was matching this deal but is currently sold out of copies for both platforms.
Best Buy also has discounted stock of the game--which usually retails for $70--but you'll be paying a little extra here in case GameStop runs out of supply. At this retailer you'll be paying $50 for a copy, but that's still a substantial savings when compared to its standard MSRP. Plus, Best Buy offers free shipping at this price, whereas GameStop requires customers to spend $79 or more for free shipping. As such, those who are able to place their order online and pick up their game at a GameStop store will get the best value here, if you only want to buy Survivor.
Like Fallen Order, Survivor is essentially a Star Wars metroidvania played in a third-person perspective. It improves on the original game with several thoughtful upgrades. Kestis has new abilities that make him feel like a true Jedi Knight, and he stars in a sweeping tale that unfolds across the war-torn galaxy.
