Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Next-Gen Upgrade Is Out This Summer

Update 04/29/2021: After it leaked last month, Disney has officially confirmed that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will receive a free next-gen upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, which will arrive this summer. On, a small update explains that the upgrade will bring "a number of technical improvements" to the game on next-gen consoles. More details are coming soon, apparently. As part of the announcement, the game received a 70% discount on its standard and deluxe editons for PS4, Xbox One, Origin and Steam – so you can buy it cheap now and get your free upgrade this summer, if you need to. [ignvideo url=""] [poilib element="accentDivider"] Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order could be getting a native next-gen console release, after the German ratings board listed new PS5 and Xbox versions. As reported by Gematsu, USK, the German video game classification system, has rated Fallen Order on PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox. These are new listings alongside the existing last-gen ratings, and suggest that a full, native next-gen upgrade of the game could be on the way. As you'd expect, those age ratings haven't changed. The Xbox classification doesn't mention a specific console, but given that there's already a classification for the Xbox One version of the game, it's thought that this relates to the Series S and X family of consoles. The game was updated for next-gen consoles back in early January which upped the game's framerate alongside some small optimizations, but didn't go as far as a new native version of the game. [ignvideo url=""] Fallen Order recently came to Xbox Game Pass for PC after the EA Play library was added to the service earlier this week. We're also expecting a Star Wars Jedi sequel at some point, after EA said it wouldn't be slowing down its production of Star Wars games, and confirmed the game was the start of a franchise. We reviewed Fallen Order upon its launch in November 2019, scoring it a 9 and calling it a "fantastic single-player action-adventure." It recently made our list of the best Soulslike games for fans of From Software's influential Dark Souls series.
