The next-gen upgrade of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has dropped today on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
First cropping up on the PlayStation Store, Respawn Entertainment has announced via Twitter that their Star Wars has received some next-gen sparkle.
Announced earlier this year, the upgrade comes with a number of technical and graphical advancements. The upgrade adds improved resolution textures and assets, 4K/HDR resolution, an improved 60FPS performance, and “significantly” faster loading times. The next-gen upgrade, which is available on PS5 and Xbox Series XIS, is free to all players who own a copy already. Any players with EA Play subscriptions will also receive the upgrade for free.
With fun and polished lightsaber combat, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order scratched a much-needed itch for many fans. And Respawn clearly hit the right note, as they also announced that the game has surpassed 20 million players across all platforms since its launch. We imagine that number may be about to get a slight boost.
With titles such as Marvel’s Avengers, No Man’s Sky and Destiny 2 all receiving free next-gen upgrades since the launch of both the PS5 and Xbox Series, the model is clearly a great way to reengage audiences with previously released properties. And with only so many true next-gen titles on offer, slicing stormtroopers is the perfect way to try out your snazzy new console.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s next-gen update is available as a free upgrade to all players with copies of the game. It can also now be purchased on their respective digital stores for all looking to dive into the story for Cal Kestis for the first time.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
