Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order To Include Enhanced Modes For Xbox One X And PS4 Pro

Respawn Entertainment has shared that Star Wars: Jedi – Fallen Order will allow Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro users to choose between prioritizing quality or performance.

Two modes will accompany the game's release: Performance Mode and Quality Mode. Performance Mode will bump the frame-rate up to 60 FPS. Quality Mode caps the frame-rate at 30 FPS while providing as-yet unspecified visual boosts. Respawn producer Paul Hatfield confirmed the modes during a recent Star Wars: Jedi – Fallen Order preview event, warning that, though Performance Mode would shoot for 60 FPS, it would not always hit its mark.


These features do not come as a surprise for a AAA title like Fallen Order. Since the release of the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, a growing number of games have taken advantage of the increased capabilities, allowing console players to have more control over their gaming experience. With the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett looming on the horizon, these modes will likely become a staple of next-gen offerings.

In other Fallen Order news, Respawn just announced that the game has gone gold, wrapping up development almost a month ahead of its November 15 release date. With the launch on the horizon, the developer has shared more and more information about the title's gameplay and features. GamesRadar+ recently unveiled Fallen Order's Bloodborne-like XP recovery system. This Restore system allows you to reclaim XP by landing a strike on enemies who killed you in previous playthroughs, filling up your health and Force meter in the process.


Early reviews based on hands-on previews have been cautiously optimistic. "I had a lot of fun with Fallen Order — more, perhaps, than I expected given its modest trailers. The flashy combat, challenging traversal, and rewarding exploration left me optimistic for what's to come," wrote Felicia Miranda of Digital Trends. "However, while gameplay is on point, Fallen Order needs to nail the story and the relationship between the characters to drive it home. With more meaningful NPC interactions, some more story and world building, and a more interesting protagonist, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order could ascend from Padawan to Master."
