It’s been a year and a half since Respawn Entertainment wowed us with the third-person action/adventure game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but it’s still bringing players in with its awesome combat and exciting visuals. And now, it’s bringing its Jedi muscle to next-gen platforms.
As part of its special announcements for next week’s May the 4 th celebration, the official Star Wars website revealed today that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is officially bound for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X, optimized specifically for those platforms. It’ll make its debut sometime this summer, though an official release date wasn’t given yet. And for those that previously bought the game on
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the upgrade will be available free of charge, so you can instantly enjoy the changes that come with the next-gen version without needing to pay a fee.
More details are expected about the port soon, but the game will feature a “number of technical improvements” over the original version, possibly with ray tracing support, 4K resolution and, of course, 60 frames per second. In fact, a recent update allows the game to run at 60 FPS already, so there’s a good possibility it could go even higher, up to 120 with TV’s that support it. There’s also the chance that the game could take advantage of the DualSense PS5 controller somehow, though that’s just rumored at the moment.
To celebrate, the game will be on sale on various platforms between now and May 12th, for both the standard and Deluxe versions. Savings of up to 70 percent off are being offered, depending what version you go for. So you can get the next-gen version for a good price, but only if you hurry!
The game is a lot of fun and looks great already, so we can only imagine how much better it’ll be on the PS5 and Xbox platforms. We’ll find out
soon enough. Enjoy, and may the 4th be with you!
