Back in 2019, EA finally broke its Star Wars curse with the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, an excellent single-player adventure set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Now later this year, the game will be upgraded to take advantage of Xbox Series X/S and PS5 hardware.
Over on the official Star Wars website, we are starting to see announcements ahead of May 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day. One of the announcements is an early tease of Jedi Fallen Order heading to next gen consoles.
“Coming this summer, we’re excited to announce the next-gen release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, bringing a number of technical improvements to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S console versions of the game. This will be a free cross-generation upgrade to current owners.”
We’ll have to wait a little bit longer for specific details on these technical improvements, but higher resolutions and 60 frames per second gameplay seem like natural upgrades for these new consoles. In fact, the game can already run at 60 frames per second on next-gen hardware in backwards compatibility mode, but this new update should improve graphical fidelity at this performance level to further optimise the experience.

KitGuru Says: I’ve been wanting to give this one a replay recently, so I’ll be looking forward to the next-gen upgrade. Are any of you going to be jumping back in to Jedi Fallen Order when the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 version launches?
