Two spots in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order have begun causing issues for players, and if there isn't an extra save spot created ahead of time then they may be forced to start the game all over again. Generally speaking, Jedi: Fallen Order was reviewed positively, with many heralding it as the best Star Wars game in quite some time. Of course, it hasn't been a perfectly smooth launch period for the title, as several issues have bubbled up in the wake of its arrival.
To clarify, nothing groundbreakingly horrendous has been discovered outside of loading time issues and a handful of other hiccups. Most recently, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was snubbed from 2019's The Game Awards, failing to score even a single nomination for the show. This is sure to come as a shock considering how anticipated Jedi: Fallen Order was ahead of launch, but it sounds as if another issue has been uncovered now.
According to a new report from Kotaku, players are getting stuck in two particular areas and are having to reset their games just to escape them. The first one can be encountered on the planet Dathomir, and is triggered when aspiring Jedi Masters leap a chasm and reach an area that is inaccessible until new Force powers are obtained later in the game. As a result, they make the jump and are then stranded with no means of going back. Kotaku has confirmed that EA has a fix is in the works for this one, but there's no telling when that will be rolled out.
The second bug was discovered on the planet known as Kashyyyk and was triggered after players failed to hit the appropriate button in a quick-time event. The game then proceeded to lock up, leaving players unable to progress past the point. As of this writing, Electronic Arts has yet to comment on whether or not a fix is in the works, leaving gamers stranded unless they reset the entire adventure. As a result, the EA support page has continued to grow with complaints of this bug.
It's important to note that both issues occurred on PC, although the Dathomir glitch is said to also be plaguing console owners as well. Of course, insuring that there's a backup save will make both of these glitches non-issues for players, but it's understandable how anyone playing through Jedi: Fallen Order could fall into them. This is especially unfortunate for PC users considering that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order marked Electronic Arts' big return to Steam. Hopefully, these fixes are rolled out soon.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
