As someone who’s keen to dive into the worlds of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order but also an arachnophobe, this is equal parts awesome and horrifying and the forthcoming The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gives a close look at some of the terrifying creatures of the game, including the Wyyyschokks.

One of the more surprising reveals of our first real look at EA and Respawn’s Jedi: Fallen Order earlier this summer was that the game’s hero, former Padawan Cal Kestis, would be slicing up more than Imperial troopers on his adventures. On the Wookiee homeworld, at least, he’d be going up against a monster from Star Wars’ past.

The Wyyyschokks were, in fact, an element of Kashyyyk’s wild and weird biosphere in the old Star Wars canon, first mentioned in Brian Dayley’s Han Solo and the Lost Legacy, but Jedi: Fallen Order will mark their debut within Disney and Lucasfilm’s rebooted canon.

And now, thanks to io9’s exclusive look inside The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, you can see how Respawn transformed the Wyyyschokk for the game’s realistic aesthetic while keeping a few visual callbacks to their look in the old Expanded universe.
