Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor lets players explore all sorts of intergalactic environments, but can you fly your own ships in-game?

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is finally out in the wild. The follow-up game to 2019’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Survivor picks up the story of Cal Kestis five years after the events of the first game. Now a Jedi Knight, Cal must remain a step ahead of the Galactic Empire in its attempts to destroy the remaining members of Order 66.

Much like the first game, players will be mastering all sorts of Lightsaber combat, some from the first game and others exclusive to Jedi: Survivor. In addition, players will get to explore vast environments across multiple planets, meet new NPCs and find all manner of hidden secrets.

But given that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is an intergalactic adventure, many are wondering if the game allows players to pilot and fly their own ship. Here’s what we know.

Can you fly ships in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor?

Though players will have access to Cal’s ship, Mantis, in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, it won’t be available for manual flying. Like the prequel, the ship will be used for Fast Travel between worlds.

The Fast Travel feature works a bit strangely in Survivor. Players need to first select their desired destination from the holotable, then head to the cockpit of the ship. Cal will need to sit in the seat and after a few seconds will arrive at their chosen planet.

Sitting in the seat feels like, players should be able to fly the ship themselves, but sadly everything is automatic this time around.
