Update: Respawn Entertainment has confirmed the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S for $40. PS4 and Xbox One owners who upgrade for free will benefit from higher resolution textures and assets, 4K resolution and HDR, improved 60 FPS performance and faster loading times. Two modes – 1440p/60 FPS and 4K/30 FPS – can be selected on Xbox Series X and PS5. The Xbox Series S is locked to 1080p and 60 FPS though.
After rumors that it would launch today, Respawn Entertainment’s free Xbox Series X/S and PS5 upgrade for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is now live. Current owners of the game on Xbox One and PS4 respectively can upgrade for free, though how it improves on the last title update remains to be seen. One thing is for sure – you’ll need to download about 54 GB on PS5 and 50.2 GB on Xbox Series X/S for the update.
In January, Respawn released an update that provides an improved post-processing resolution for Xbox Series X and PS5 players along with 60 FPS gameplay. This allowed for 60 FPS with a dynamic resolution that ranged from 1080p to 1440p. A mode for post-processing at 4K on Xbox Series X with dynamic resolution ranging from 1512p to 2160p (while the PS5 remained static at 1200p) were also added.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is currently available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and Google Stadia. A sequel is reportedly in development, which makes sense given how the original sold over 10 million copies by March 2020. Stay tuned for more details (and maybe even an announcement at EA Play Live) in the meantime.
