Earlier this year, Respawn Entertainment updated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to make it perform better on the latest console generation, though still only utilizing the backward compatibility-supported original version. Today, the studio released the official next-gen console version of the action, and it is good news for those who already own a copy, since they are getting a free upgrade.
The Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles will now run the game with higher resolution textures and assets at 60FPS, while much-improved loading times are present now as expected thanks to the built-in SSDs. Unfortunately, no exact details have been shared yet regarding the improved fidelity.
Respawn is still including the familiar Performance Mode toggle on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, letting players enjoy being a Jedi at 1440p resolution at 60 FPS or 4K resolution at 30 FPS. The Xbox Series S version comes in locked at 1080p at 60FPS without a performance toggle.
The free cross-generational update is available via all Xbox One and PlayStation 4 copies. Go here for a handy FAQ about how the upgrade can work even if you have an old disc copy but now own a digital-only next-generation console.
Save files are transferable too, ensuring your progress and all-important achievements don't get wiped out while moving. This is an automatic process on Xbox Series X|S, but for PlayStation 5 owners, they will need the files available on the console to use it, either from already playing the backward compatible version, pulling from the cloud, or getting the saves via a USB stick.
