What to expect from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's next-gen update

A new patch for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that enhances the game's visuals and overall performance was just released for next-gen consoles. The latest update makes use of the technological capabilities of the new Xbox Series X|S consoles, as well as the PlayStation 5.

The new Fallen Order update will vary depending on what next-gen console players own. Xbox Series S owners will see the framerate bumped from 45 FPS to 60 FPS. On the other hand, Xbox Series X will have two different gameplay experiences, depending on whether or not they lock themselves into the console's "Performance Mode" feature. If the player is using the feature, the game will run at a steady 60 FPS in addition to having a great resolution ranging from 1080p to 1440p. If the player chooses to run Fallen Order without Performance Mode enabled, they expect 4K post-processing resolution, as well as a significant boost to dynamic resolution, which will fall somewhere between 1512p to 2160p.

PlayStation 5 owners will also see a significant graphical change when they play Fallen Order after the update has been installed. The game will run at 60 FPS with postprocessing increased to a maximum of 1440p. However, the dynamic resolution for Fallen Order on the PS5 has been disabled, locking the game in at 1200p. However, this is still higher than the game's previous 810-1080p range, so the update is still a step up in the visual department.

Fallen Order has been an incredible success for EA and the Star Wars video game franchise as whole. There have even been rumors of a sequel to this critically acclaimed game. This was first hinted at by EA's CEO, Andrew Wilson, during an earnings call when he said that Fallen Order is the "first title in an entirely new franchise." However, EA has yet to confirm if a new game in the series is in development.

This new graphical update for Fallen Order is great for next-gen owners who want to play the game in the highest possible definitely. In relation to the rumors surrounding a possible new entry after Fallen Order, this recent update could also be seen as a taste of what's to come in the series' future. While they continue to wait for official sequel news, fans of Fallen Order can at least somewhat experience what a next-gen game in this franchise could look like.
