Bug Fixes and Tweaks

  • Improved transitions between parry and block animations
  • The Bog Rats on Bogano were sometimes floating. They should now be more grounded.
  • Improved the transitions into and out of jumping and double jumping

  • Fixed the issue that would prevent Cal from progressing his journey when a Bounty Hunter would show up
  • Improved overall responsiveness of gameplay and the reliability of actions based on player feedback

 

New Game Plus was among the game's most requested features, so the addition of New Journey + is rather welcome. Even without the new content coming with the new update, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order was an excellent action-adventure game and one of the best Star Wars games released in recent years.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is yet another excellent game developed by Respawn. With its excellent story, charming characters, engaging platforming and combat mechanics, the game is a must-buy for any self-respecting Star Wars fan, despite a lack of innovation which doesn't truly harm the experience as a whole.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is now available worldwide on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
