Respawn and EA are warning Star Wars Jedi Survivor fans to avoid spoilers as physical copies of the upcoming game are turning up ahead of the game’s release later this week.

A tweet from the official EA Star Wars Twitter account reads as such: “We’re beyond excited for everyone to experience Star Wars Jedi Survivor this week! We ask that you please be mindful of others and avoid posting or sharing spoilers. And remember, BD is watching!” – the post, of course, accompanied by a gif of lovable robot droid BD.

The warning comes as a number of people are posting that they’ve received physical copies of the game early as a small number of retailers appear to have broken the game’s street date. For example, one user on the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Reddit posted that they had received their copy of the game early from a Facebook Marketplace seller. Unfortunately, this has also seen story spoilers beginning to find their way online, and so many developers are asking for players to be vigilant in avoiding them.

Among those asking the internet to be kind include the game’s senior writer Pete Stewart who wrote on Twitter – “Please friends, don’t spoil the game. We all worked very hard to create something that hopefully surprises and delights you all. I know a lot of people will be upset to see spoilers before they get to play, and for us it’s really disheartening to see as well.”

Thankfully, there’s not long left to wait now, as the Jedi Survivor release time is just a few days away. The game is the long awaited sequel to 2019’s Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, and will continue the story of Cal Kestis – a former survivor of Order 66 who rediscovers his connection to the Force and is seeking to rebuild the Jedi Order.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S from April 28, 2023 and the Jedi Survivor preloads are set to start later today.
