Jedi: Fallen Order’s Next-Gen Update Lets You Go From Disc to Digital


EA has released a free next-gen update for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on Friday, and the announcement comes with some good news for people who own a physical copy of the game but have a discless next-gen console: EA lets you convert your physical copy to a digital one so you can take advantage of the upgrade, says the company in a FAQ.

If you want to upgrade your disc version to digital, click this link to the EA support website. Clicking on the Digital Edition PS5 or Xbox Series S icons, then “Codes and Promotions”, then “Replace Disc with Code”, then “Select Contact Option” will take you to a form to fill out to get your digital code. The form states that an EA support representative will email you within 72 hours of completing it.

Jedi: Fallen OrderThe next-gen update will add 4K/HDR resolution, improved 60fps performance and “significantly faster” loading speeds, according to EA. It also adds a performance mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X that runs at 1440p resolution and 60fps – when disabled, the game runs at 4K resolution at 30fps. Those options can be disappointing for players hoping for a way to play in 4K and 60 fps on next gen consoles. And Xbox Series S players can’t choose from either mode; the Series S version of the game will be limited to 1080p/60fps, EA says.

You can also transfer your saves, and doing so will transfer unlocked trophies and achievements as well.
