Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order received a big update on Tuesday that increases frame rates and resolutions via backward compatibility on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The free update was announced in a news release from Electronic Arts.

Today’s update includes the following console-specific upgrades:

Xbox Series S

  • Frame rate has been increased to 60 fps (up from 45 fps)

Xbox Series X Performance mode

  • Frame rate has been increased to 60 fps
  • Dynamic resolution added in the range of 1080p to 1440p

Xbox Series X Normal mode (non-performance mode)

  • Post-processing has been increased to 4K
  • Dynamic resolution in the range of 1512p to 2160p

PlayStation 5

  • Frame rate has been increased to 60 fps (up from 45 fps)
  • Post-processing increased to 1440p
  • Dynamic resolution has been disabled and the game is rendering at 1200p (up from 810-1080p)

Developed by Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends), Fallen Order is a third-person action-adventure game set in the early days of the Empire. Order 66 has been issued, which calls for the assassination of every living Jedi in the galaxy. Players take on the role of survivor Cal Kestis, who must learn the martial ways of his order while fighting back against fascism. The game was critical as well as commercial success, selling far more units than expected.
