I thought we already got a next gen patch! Definitely didn't expect them to put more work in for next gen consoles, very nice.

I got through it and I'd just say that if they just get it so that the loading times are on par with what other games have done with the SSDs, I might consider playing it again, never again otherwise.

It got a patch but was bare minium upgrade.

Still had some rough parts. Didn't like it enough to want to replay it once this patch is released.

The game's visuals are great, game play not so much. It got boring quickly. Glad I didn't buy it. Only played it when I had EA sub for a month.

This is looking pretty damn good at 60fps now. I had to restart the game because I couldn't remember any of the buttons or what was happening in the story. Will be interested to see a breakdown of all the upgrades.

According to IGN:

Respawn has clirified that the new versions make the following improvements:

  • Higher Resolution Textures & Assets
  • 4K/HDR Resolution
  • Improved 60 FPS Performance
  • Significantly Faster Loading Times
The new versions of the game come with a Performance Mode toggle on PS5 and Xbox Series X (but not Series S). The switch offers either 1440p Resolution at 60 FPS or 4K Resolution at 30 FPS.

Downloading now. Trying for the 3rd time to get into this. Honestly I never make it past the first few missions.
I’m always shocked when people don’t love this game. We’d been waiting sooooo long for a decent Jedi game! I mean there was the force unleashed games, but they were too arcadey to really scratch that itch

The problem is lately I've been playing games like AC Valhalla, God of War, and lately Ghost of Tsushima and the actual combat mechanics don't even come close.

The story is fine, but the movement and combat is just so janky. It isn't that it is a bad game, but it feels a step down from anything I've played that is sort of similar. I'm not comparing it to other Star Wars games as that's a very low bar.

If this game wasn't Star Wars and was just some generic combat game, nobody would play it.

So it turns out EA did in fact update this game back in January to run at 1080p-1440p dynamic resolution 60fps. The latest update bumps it to just straight 1440p 60fps. Won't be too noticeable of a difference.

Well we all have popular games that just don’t click with us so I can’t blame you, but I did not get an overly janky feeling from Fallen Order. I thought combat and exploration were really well done

Yeah, the combat and control was not outstanding. I ended up deciding I wanted to finish it anyway because I was curious about the story, and given the asstacular loading times, I just turned the difficulty all the way down - I don't mind playing on the above-average difficulty level on a game with a good combat implementation if the time to get back after failure is short, but this wasn't great and was interminable. Like almost freaking Valkyrie animations in Too Human bad.

Too human is the better game though
