PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S receive upgrades for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The developers announced the next-gen release for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order two weeks ago. The free upgrade will apply to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S console users. The update for this Respawn title has a lot of improvements including higher resolution textures and assets, 60 FPS performance and faster loading times. Along with that, PS5 and Xbox Series X players can also play the game on 4K resolution.

The performance on the Xbox Series S is locked at 1080p resolution at 60 FPS. But PS5 and Series X players can toggle the game between two options. By turning on the Performance Mode, fans can play as Cal Kestis with 1440p resolution and 60 FPS. With the option turned off, the visuals ramp up to 4K but with only 30 FPS gameplay.

Comparison between the Xbox Series and PS5 versions

Both versions drastically improved on loading times with the PS5 variant now only taking half the time to set up. It’s also the faster version, as the Series X takes a second more on most situations. Both consoles also showcased improved textures especially with shadows. However, there isn’t a drastic difference between the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in that category.
