Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to get PS4 and Xbox One variations in spite of everything

It’s been introduced that one of many largest current-gen video games of the yr up to now, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, shall be coming to PS4 and Xbox One consoles in spite of everything.

Forward of the sport’s launch on PS5, Xbox Sequence X/S, and PC earlier this yr, writer EA and developer Respawn claimed that it was just too technically bold to launch on previous-gen consoles.

Now, nevertheless, EA CEO Andrew Home has reversed course completely (by way of The Verge). “Because of the power of this legendary franchise and neighborhood demand, our improvement crew has dedicated to bringing this Jedi expertise to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One,” he introduced at EA’s Q1 earnings name on Tuesday.

On condition that Respawn struggled to get Star Wars Jedi: Survivor working adequately on the current-gen set-ups for which it was supposedly custom-made, this sounds fairly bold. We’re attempting to think about the body price and graphical compromises that shall be required to hit ‘playable’ standing on PS4 and Xbox One.

On the flip aspect, it’s nice in idea that many extra persons are going to have the ability to play one of many largest video games of the yr. Regardless of its technical gremlins, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor turned out to be probably the greatest video games of 2023 up to now.

It’s a sequel to 2019’s standard Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and presents a broadly comparable mixture of Soulslike third individual fight and lightweight Metroidvania development. Nevertheless, this yr’s sequel has taken full benefit of present gen energy and made environments method greater and extra expansive.

Or so we thought. It’ll be attention-grabbing to see how Jedi: Survivor handles on PS4 and Xbox One, at any time when it launches.
