Fan service arrives in a patch today

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gets a photo mode with a patch arriving today, Respawn Entertainment said in a note to fans on Tuesday.

There’s another cosmetic option, that grants “the ability to remove a specific part of Cal’s lightsaber, once you hit a certain point in the story.”

The lightsaber part in question has bummed out many fans, who spent a good amount of time building a lightsaber that fit their personal style, only to suddenly be stuck with this one component part that can’t be adjusted or swapped out.

“It seems like the weirdest decision to have all this lightsaber customization, and then do this to us,” wrote one on the game’s subreddit at the end of November.

“I’ve been wanting more color options since i started the game, and the ability to change the saber ends ever since I got the saber-staff,” said another. “I finally got them both less than an hour ago and they decided to destroy my sleek lightsaber design while they where at it.”

As for the photo mode, that can be access by pressing down on both of the stick buttons. It’ll include several options, filters and other enhancements to help players capture their moments. Photo editors may reset the scene by pressing the right stick button.

The remainder of the patch addresses several bug fixes. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launched Nov. 15 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
