Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, one of the most valued titles in the franchise, is updated to take full advantage of the potential of the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles. This is a free intergenerational update for current owners of physical or digital versions of the game.
The announcement was made this Friday by Electronic Arts, Lucasfilm Games and Respawn Entertainment. The latter is the developer of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, who has also worked on other hit hits like Apex Legends, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, and the Titanfall series.
The version for PS5 and Xbox Series XS of the game arrives with all the improvements that you could expect in a next generation title such as textures and high resolution resources, 4K resolution with support for HDR, improved frame performance and considerably faster loading times.
It also has a performance mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X that runs Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at a resolution of 1440p and 60 FPS. When this mode is disabled, the game runs at a resolution of 4K at 30 FPS on the most powerful consoles, and 1080p and 60 FPS on Xbox Series S.
