Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order December 11th Update adds Photo Mode

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s PC System Requirements

Respawn Entertainment has released a new update for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s mostly a bug fix update, but there are a few notable additions to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order coming with the patch. These are things that players have asked for since launch, so it’s nice to see them coming into the action game.

The big new addition is a full photo mode. Photo modes are something that we’re increasingly seeing in-game as both a fun aside and a marketing tool. And just like other iterations, players can pause action scenes and alter various elements to take their desired picture. Lighting and blocking options like zoom, tilt, exposure and more can now be tweaked. You can also add and remove filters, models and other elements in a scene for the pictures.

The second new feature is a customization tweak to Cal’s in-game lightsaber. There’s a pretty big story element in the game that entails the weapon, so some players have wanted the ability to hide that specific component. I won’t go into what it entails, as it’s very much a spoiler, but players will know it when they see it. The new option to hide the component is found in the customization menu.

Players reported a variety of crashes, those have been fixed. The patch also fixes some issues with collision detection and the AI routines, making the experience of playing more cohesive. One item of note is that bounty hunters should continue to pursue Cal now, as their previous iteration was bugged.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. You can find the full patch notes for the latest update down below.

  • We’ve fixed an issue where Cal could avoid enemies on Zeffo, to the extent that gameplay events wouldn’t trigger, halting progression to the story.
