Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Rated For Next-Gen Consoles
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order could be getting a native next-gen console release, after the German ratings board listed new PS5 and Xbox versions.
As reported by Gematsu, USK, the German video game classification system, has rated Fallen Order on PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox. These are new listings alongside the existing last-gen ratings, and suggest that a full, native next-gen upgrade of the game could be on the way. As you’d expect, those age ratings haven’t changed.
The Xbox classification doesn’t mention a specific console, but given that there’s already a classification for the Xbox One version of the game, it’s thought that this relates to the Series S and X family of consoles. The game was updated for next-gen consoles back in early January which upped the game’s framerate alongside some small optimizations, but didn’t go as far as a new native version of the game.
Fallen Order recently came to Xbox Game Pass for PC after the EA Play library was added to the service earlier this week. We’re also expecting a Star Wars Jedi sequel at some point, after EA said it wouldn’t be slowing down its production of Star Wars games, and confirmed the game was the start of a franchise.
We reviewed Fallen Order upon its launch in November 2019, scoring it a 9 and calling it a “fantastic single-player action-adventure.” It recently made our list of the best Soulslike games for fans of From Software’s influential Dark Souls series.
