    Thanks to Xbox’s Smart Delivery, owners of the base game don’t have to do anything extra on their part. Just like any other Xbox optimized game, the next-gen version of Fallen Order will be automatically downloaded on your system if you own the game. For physical disk owners, just insert the disk into the console drive and check for an update. Your saves will carry over automatically.

    For PlayStation owners, the upgrade might take an extra step or two. You’ll have to navigate to the game hub of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on the home screen (if you have the PS4 version installed), or from your game library. From there, click on the three dots on the game’s store page to redeem the free PS5 version upgrade.

    To transfer your saves, make sure to download the PS4 saves from PS Plus cloud storage onto your PS5, or use a USB stick to transfer them from your PS4.

    Jedi Fallen Order was a well-optimized game on PC, but its performance on Gen 8 consoles was average. Thanks to the power of the new consoles, the next-gen version of the game will look and run better than ever, with two graphics options:

    • Performance Mode – Targets 60 FPS at 1440p resolution
    • Base (Performance OFF) – Targets 30 FPS at 4K resolution

    Note that the game only targets 1080p at 60 FPS on the Xbox Series S. Of course, higher frame rates and resolution aren’t all that’s being offered, with the obvious benefit of fast loading also available on the new consoles. More details can be found on EA’s blog post about the free upgrade.

    Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam and EA Origin.
