Electronic Arts has finally begun to roll out a fix for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order after reports of several major bugs bogged down the title's initial launch across all platforms. In spite these hiccups, Jedi: Fallen Order reviewed very well amongst critics, although it still failed to be nominated for anything for The Game Awards 2019 ceremony. This comes despite the fact that Nintendo managed to surprise everything by scoring a GotY nod with its Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – which, technically, released in 2018.
Of course, gamers have largely been pleased as punch with developer Respawn's crack at a Star Wars game. Screen Rant's Jedi: Fallen Order preview even claims that it's one of the best things EA has published in recent memory. All in all, it's been a very positive venture for all parties involved that'll hopefully bear more fruit in the form of sequels, but it still hasn't been an entirely smooth launch. This is a result of the bugs players have been encountering.
Some of the reported issues are so bad in Jedi: Fallen Order that players had to start their entire journey over again from scratch. Fortunately, Respawn and EA have finally addressed these game-breaking bugs with a new patch that it has now begun rolling out across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. At least, that's what Star Wars community lead F8RGE stated on reddit in a post that detailed all of the issues being addressed by the patch.
Chief among the notes was a confirmation that the game-breaking problems that caused players to have to start all over again have been fixed. They were joined by a number of other less severe bugs and improvements, ranging from a glitch that made the adorable droid BD-1 invisible to brightening the force bar so that it's better visible for players. All in all, these changes should make Jedi: Fallen Order a much smoother experience.
Despite failing to receive an award nomination, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has been a hit with consumers. That much was made clear when EA, Respawn, and LucasArts jointly announced that Jedi: Fallen Order had shattered digital sales records for Star Wars games. This is sure to be less surprising when considering that EA actually smartened up and released Fallen Order across Steam and the Epic Games Store. Still, it's a major feat given that there have been a number of large-scale Star Wars titles launched across digital platforms previously.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is now available across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One platforms.
