‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order‘ has been a hit with both critics and audiences. Metacritic lists it at 79% from critics and 77% from users. And not only!
Released on November 15, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, it sold 10 million copies by March 31, 2020 (source: Venturebeat); a commercial success which most likely means that the game’s publisher – EA – and its makers – Respawn Entertainment (‘Apex Legends‘, ‘Titanfall‘) – will further develop the franchise. Not least because the patch/update released today.
The “next-gen optimization update” for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 is improving the visuals (in terms of framerate and resolution). Here follows a quick summary:
The first gameplay from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was just revealed. It’s 13 minutes long and guess what: it’s gourgeous!
The Empire won’t stop until every Jedi is purged from the galaxy. As a young Padawan on the run, the odds are against you—but the Force is with you. Discover the Jedi abilities you must master to survive. Become a Jedi on November 15, 2019.
There has not been much info about this title since last year’s E3 when the whole world was told that Respawn was working on it. It was said a while ago that the title would be fully revealed at the STAR WARS CELEBRATION in April, and we now got a concrete date.
The reveal will come during a special panel on Saturday, April 13th.
The developers have just released the successfull APEX LEGENDS and are one of the world’s hottest right now. Blake Jourgensen (the economy boss at EA) earlier this year said that:
Looking forward, we’re delighted to launch Anthem, our new IP, to grow Apex Legends and related Titanfall experiences, to deliver new Plants vs. Zombies and Need for Speed titles, and to add Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to our sports titles in the fall.
