Electronic Arts has announced that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available for PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X and S, and that previous owners of the game may be eligible for a free version.

Owners of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be able to get a free, cross-generation upgrade, while the game will also be available in digital and physical formats for $40. It joins other free Xbox upgrades including Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Doom Eternal.

Respawn says that the next-gen version of Jedi: Fallen Order features: 

  • Higher Resolution Textures & Assets
  • 4K/HDR Resolution
  • Improved 60 FPS Performance
  • Significantly Faster Loading Times

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order first came out in 2019, and CNET's review at the time called it "a fun mashup of Dark Souls, Tomb Raider and Metroid Prime."

The free cross-gen upgrade news comes on the eve of the biggest games convention of the year, E3, and it's rumored that a remake of Knights of the Old Republic, another Star Wars game, will be announced at the show.
