Some Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order fans are noticing an amusing detail about the game’s box art, one that paints resident pilot Greez in a far more active light. Greez Dritus is the captain of the Stinger Mantis in Fallen Order, the ship that former Jedi Cal Kestis uses to travel the galaxy in search of the remains of the old Jedi Order during the height of the Empire’s reign.
Greez usually stays by the Stinger Mantis whenever Cal sets off to explore a planet in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and proves himself to be one of the Star Wars franchise’s saltiest characters as he provides comic relief throughout the story. Greez’s humorous personality, unique design, and unusual speech patterns have made the gruff but cautious Latero quite popular among players, but his picture on the game’s cover casts him in a quite different role than the one he takes in the game.
Earlier this week, Reddit user superrobotpenguin shared a picture of Greez wielding a blaster in the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order box art, which he never does in the game. Other users in the comment section have noted the irony of the non-action-oriented pilot being shown with a pistol and have suggested other items he could have held instead – like a salt shaker for his lunch. Some have suggested that Greez would want to carry a weapon after the crew’s trip to Dathomir, where Cal battles fallen Jedi Taron Malicos. In any case, fans are finding it funny that the character who spends most of his screen time away from the action is shown getting armed for battle in the game’s box art.
While Greez doesn’t do any blasting in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, perhaps the diminutive pilot could take a more active role in the game’s upcoming sequel. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was announced earlier this year, with a tentative release window set for sometime in 2023. Jedi: Survivor will supposedly be much darker than the already somber Jedi: Fallen Order, with Cal and the crew of the Stinger Mantis reportedly having to make some morally shady decisions while on the run from the Empire. There have been rumors that a new Star Wars Jedi: Survivor trailer could be released in December, showing off even more of the promising sequel.
Wherever Greez’s story takes him next, it’s funny to see him wielding a blaster on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s box art considering he never so much as touches a weapon throughout the game. One can never judge a book (or game) by its cover after all, and Greez’s deceptively action-packed appearance on the front of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a fun source of comedy for fans who have actually played the game.
