Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order PS5/ Xbox Series X/ Series S – Next-Gen Patch Tested!

January 14, 2021 37 Views

Wow, that came out of nowhere! Respawn Entertainment has updated Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to tap into the extra horsepower of the Xbox Series X and S consoles, plus of course, PlayStation 5. It’s ‘back compat plus’ as Rich calls it, so relatively limited compared to a native next-gen app – but here’s how it looks and plays on all three systems.

  1. These reviews are games that are STILL in backwards compatibility mode for the Series X playing Xbox One games on a layer. Wait for native Series X games when they stop developing for the Xbox One, harnessing full potential of the hardware, they will hit 4k 60fps with ease.

  2. I got the Series S and ,yeah, most of the time it runs pretty smooth, but, and that's a big but, (lol), i got really Bad frame drops on the planet Dathomir, for example, which is really hard to play with. Can you confirm that? I have worries about that's somethings wrong with my XBOX Series S. Maybe a Problem with my RAM or GPU, I don't know.

  3. Glad to see consoles get some love, it was indeed pretty rough at launch and I'm glad I got to experience it on a high spec PC with uncapped frame rates. Easily one of my top games of this gen personally, feel like doing another play through now :).

  4. When I first watched this video here on Sony Defense Foundry I wondered why they didn't even mention the notoriously long loading times this game always had, but now that I watched the analysis on NX Gamer and saw that both Series S and X have loading times that are more than twice as fast as PS5's, I understood why…
