Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PS5 & Xbox Series X/S Release Date Confirmed

The Star Wars franchise is getting ready for May the 4th, a day when fans celebrate the franchise's films, TV shows, games, and everything else about Star Wars, and one of the titles celebrating the event is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the critically-acclaimed single-player game from Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts. This summer, the game is coming to next-gen consoles (PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X/S).

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S owners are able to play Fallen Order on their next-gen consoles since they were released, but only through backwards compatibility. However, this summer, the next-gen versions of Fallen Order will be available, and if you already own the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you will be able to upgrade for free when the new version comes out.

"Coming this summer, we're excited to announce the next-gen release of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, bringing a number of technical improvements to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S console versions of the game," the Star Wars site said in a post about the update. "This will be a free cross-generation upgrade to current owners. More details will come soon."

The developers haven't announced what technical upgrades we should expect from the next-gen version of the game, but it's likely that it will have improved framerates, graphics, and resolution.

Fallen Order is currently discounted and will keep the sale price for a while, so it's a good time to buy if you haven't yet.
