A source from a UK video game retailer told The Gamer that stores had today received boxed copies of the title ahead of a planned “announcement and release” this Friday.
It was confirmed in April that EA planned to release Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S this summer.
Featuring “a number of technical improvements”, the updated version of Respawn’s action adventure game will also be available as a free cross-gen upgrade to existing owners.
The update improves framerate and dynamic resolution ranges on Xbox Series X/S and PS5. The two more powerful consoles also had their post-processing resolutions improved.
EA said in July 2020 that Jedi Fallen Order game had surpassed 10 million unique players.
The publisher labelled it “one of the breakout titles of the last several years” and CEO Andrew Wilson called it “the first title in an entirely new franchise”, suggesting a Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel is on the cards.
Respawn, which is also behind the Titanfall and Apex Legends series, recently confirmed it is working on an original game project.
