Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order update includes photo mode and bug fixes

A new patch for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has added the ability to take pictures, but there’s nothing about improving the frame rate…

While by no means perfect, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a welcome attempt at a modern single-player Star Wars game. Unfortunately, some unlucky players have had to deal with some notorious bugs since launch.

Thankfully, an update has been released today that will address a number of these issues, as well as add a photo mode.

Photo modes have almost become de rigueur in modern games, with everything from Super Mario Odyssey to God Of War offering the option, and developer Respawn has added all the usual options, such as filters, spotlights, and the ability to freely move the camera – giving would-be photographers the creative freedom to take some potentially stunning shots.

The update also deals with a certain, controversial lightsaber upgrade. We won’t spoil it since it’s tied to the story but, basically, there comes a certain point where you’re given a permanent cosmetic fixture to your lightsaber that can’t be removed.

This has apparently bugged enough players that feel it hampers their personal aesthetic, as the update will provide an option to simply hide the cosmetic, making it as if it’s not even there.

As far as bugs go, Respawn has confirmed that a large number of them have been dealt with, including ones that could prevent story progress, like cut scenes freezing and an infinitely looping elevator, as well as collision issues that could see players falling through the ground itself in certain areas.

A full list of the fixes can be found on the game’s Reddit page but unfortunately there’s nothing about improving the frame rate, which could get pretty syrupy at times, especially on the first planet.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
