EA and Respawn have released a new update for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on next-gen versions of the game, which is ready for download now on your respective systems. The update focuses on backward compatibility performance for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
For both of Microsoft’s next-gen consoles, the framerate has been notched up from 45 to 60 FPS, but this only applies to the Series X in "performance mode".
There are two modes, performance and normal. The dynamic range of Jedi: Fallen Order has been added to the Series X in performance mode (ranging from 1080p to 1440p), whereas the postprocessing power of the Series X in normal or "non-performance mode" has been increased to 4K, with a dynamic resolution between 1512p to 2160p.
As for the PlayStation 5, the framerate has been similarly updated from 45 FPS to 60, and while postprocessing has been increased to 1440p, the dynamic resolution has been disabled and Jedi: Fallen Order will render at 1200p (previously 810-1080p).
In layman’s terms, this update will ensure the title will play and run better via backward compatibility on the PS5 and both of the Xbox Series consoles.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is currently available on the PlayStation Store for a discounted price of $23.99 (originally $59.99), and while this offer ends next week on January 19, Fallen Order is also available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
From Respawn, the creative minds behind Titanfall and Apex Legends, Fallen Order is set five years after Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, focusing on Cal Kestis, a Jedi hiding on Bracca as a ship scrapper who seeks to rebuild the Jedi order while being hunted by two Inquisitors trained under Darth Vader.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is further available on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
