Everyone Can Have an Orange Lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Now, As a Treat

New year, new patch, new blade.

The lightsaber customization options in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order run pretty deep, but the feature that sets your Jedi weapon apart more than any other is the color of its blade. In that respect, Fallen Order offers more variety than Star Wars films ever have, and today's patch just added another option. The orange lightsaber blade, which was initially a pre-order bonus for the game, is now available to all players.

To claim your orange blade, all you have to do is download the update and start Fallen Order. Like the classic blue and green options, orange is available to you before the story event that unlocks Fallen Order's five other blade options.

On PC, a little bit of Cheat Engine tweaking can get you any wild lightsaber color you want, but there are only a few canonical ones that Fallen Order will regularly bar you from using. For example, the one-of-a-kind Darksaber doesn't make an appearance in the game, so that's completely absent. You can't pull an Ahsoka Tano and turn your lightsaber blades white, either—and, since this is a game about being a Jedi, after all, you're not given the option of using the Sith's red blades.

The new update also gives all players a handful of other pre-order cosmetics: a yellow-and-black Bee-D-1 skin, a Gold Squadron Stinger skin for the Mantis, and two additional lightsaber hilts. That still leaves out some other exclusive items, like the Titanfall 2-inspired skins for EA Access members, but it means everybody has the opportunity to trick their lightsaber out to its fullest potential.
