If there’s one thing that’s always an important aspect of any good Metroidvania title, it’s a good map. Luckily, Respawn and EA’s latest Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor includes a fantastic map that allows players to get the lay of the land, highlights key story locations, and makes collectible hunting even easier. So, if you want to learn how to use the Holomap available in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, this guide has got you covered!
How To Get Started With Your Holomap In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
- Begin the process of pulling up your Holomap by pressing the button or key designated on your keyboard or controller. For Xbox, this is your View Button, for PC this is the M key, and on PlayStation it will be the Touchpad. Once you press that, the Holomap will appear onscreen with various navigation tools. Don’t worry, though there’s a lot to take in, you can zoom in and out in order to get a better view of things!
- The first thing you’ll notice is that there’s now a large blue shape on the screen. That’s actually your map! The yellow highlighted arrow represents Cal’s location, with the yellow line being the path he’s walked up to that point.
- You’ll also see red doors which represent locations you cannot access currently, with green doors indicating locations you can get through. Yellow doors or yellow-marked areas indicate mission-specific locations that you will need to visit. You can even drop Beacons on the map to keep track of locations you’d like to explore next.
- Additionally, you can view a Legend showing everything indicated on the map, view collectibles available to find in your current location, and swap between the levels of your current area. For example, if you’re in a three-story building, you could pop between each floor and see what’s traversable, what collectibles are available, and where your next objective is located.
- Last but certainly not least, you can also swap between the map for your current planet and the galaxy as a whole.
That’s really all there is to it! The Holomap in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor really isn’t that hard to master, even though it looks complex on the surface. Luckily, there’s also a controls menu you could pop up if you’re ever feeling lost.
