What you need to know

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a fantastic Star Wars game that was passed over by a ton of potential players.
  • The game is now heading to EA Play, meaning people will be able to try out the game as part of EA's game subscription.

  • All of this happens on November 10, the same day that the Xbox Series X and S launch, making for a busy day.

One of the best games of yesteryear was Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which combined a surprisingly wonderful adventure with satisfying combat and Force powers into one of the best Star Wars games of all time. If you haven't experienced Jedi: Fallen Order yet, it's definitely a game worth leaping into feet first, and it's about to get a whole lot easier to do. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is officially coming to EA Play, meaning any subscribers will be able to have full access to the game as part of the monthly cost.

This is especially exciting for Xbox players, as EA Play is joining forces with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, meaning anyone subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which is already the best value in all of gaming by including Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming (Project xCloud) into one low monthly cost, will also have full access to every title available through EA Play. Pretty soon, this also includes Jedi: Fallen Order.

The stakes get even higher when you realize the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S are right around the corner, and will feature powerful new hardware and incredibly fast SSD's, which massively improve performance in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order from our tests.

So when does this all go down? Well, it all happens on the same day. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order joins EA Play, EA Play joins Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and the Xbox Series X|S release to the world all on November 10, 2020, which is less than a week away. If you haven't tried Jedi: Fallen Order yet, this is the time to do it.
