Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PS5 and Xbox Series X Upgrade Now Live

Respawn Entertainment's hit Star Wars game has officially gone next-gen on Sony and Microsoft's latest consoles.


Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has received a next-gen upgrade, as developer Respawn Entertainment has released optimization patches for the game on PS5. The game originally took advantage of Microsoft and Sony's latest consoles with a free update that added a frame-rate boost and a dynamic resolution upgrade.

Higher-resolution textures and assets, 4K and HDR resolution, improved 60 FPS performance, and faster loading times have been added in this edition. On PS5 this version is slightly larger than the PS4 game, coming in at around 54GB compared to the last-gen version which is 45GB in size. On Xbox Series X, the upgraded game clocks in at just under 50GB. The update is free to anyone who owns the native edition of Fallen Order and includes a number of technical improvements.

Fallen Order was lauded by EA for being "one of the breakout titles of the last several years" when it surpassed 10 million unique players back in July 2020, with CEO Andrew Wilson hinting at more sequels when he called the game "the first title in an entirely new franchise."

That sequel will likely have to wait though, as Respawn is currently working on a new IP while also developing more content for its popular battle royale Apex Legends.
