A fresh update is dropping for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order today on all platforms, making a bunch of fixes and improvements to the game, as well as unlocking content that was previously exclusive for those who pre-ordered the game.
That’s right, you can now set Cal’s lightsaber blade colour to orange, dress up the lovable droid BD-1 up as a bee, and so on, regardless of whether or not you pre-ordered the game.
Unfortunately, there’s no sign of a New Game+ mode, which would let players retain their character unlocks and progress while tackling the game at a higher difficulty, and there’s no further optimisations for those still annoyed by performance issues and loading hitches. Hopefully Respawn are looking at addressing those common requests and complaints soon.
Delve into the patch notes to see what the update does fix:
Fixes & Improvements
- We’ve fixed an issue where Bounty Hunters would sometimes get stuck in Zeffo.
- Not only was the Photomode camera able to explode rockets, it could interact with trigger volumes within the levels that could potentially break the game. We’ve fixed this to ensure that you can continue playing the game after using Photomode. Unfortunately, this also means that rockets will be unaffected by the camera moving forward.
- There was a bug that was causing one of the elevators in the last level to have a tendency of disappearing. It should now be present at all times.
- We’ve improved collision on Ilum.
- Our language translations have been updated.
- There was an issue where some text was overlapping in Photomode for specific screen ratios. That has been fixed.
- The Albino Wyyyschokk tactical guide entry wasn’t appearing for all users, this should now be fixed.
- We’ve fixed Gorgara having a tendency to disappear at specific times on Dathomir.
- Pre-order content has now been unlocked for all players. This content includes:
- Orange Lightsaber Blade Color
- Mygeeto Campaign Lightsaber Hilt
- Umbaran Campaign Lightsaber Hilt
- Bee-D-1 Skin
- Gold Squadron Stinger Mantis Skin
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order launched back in November to an appreciative Star Wars fan base, blending together a bunch of interesting genres with the Jedi lightsaber action that people have been craving for far too long. Jim wrote in our review, “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is exactly the kind of single player game we had originally hoped to see when EA and Disney joined forces. Even if you strip away the license, you’re left with a super satisfying mix or combat, story, and exploration, deftly crafted by a studio best known for spearheading an entirely different genre.”
