Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Comes to Xbox Game Pass Via EA Play Next Week

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Comes to Xbox Game Pass Via EA Play Next Week

Game Pass subscribers get EA Play on the same day it receives Respawn's Star Wars title.

If you skipped over Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order last year (perhaps you heard it was buggy, or maybe Rise of Skywalker just bummed you out too much), you'll be able to start playing it on EA Play next week. Don't have EA Play? Well, if you're subscribed to Xbox Game Pass, you'll get EA Play on the same day it gets Fallen Order.

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, which is also launch day for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, EA Play membership is being added as a perk of Game Pass on consoles. That means titles like Battlefield V, Madden NFL 20, and Titanfall 2 are all effectively joining Game Pass next week, and now, Fallen Order is EA's cherry on top.

PC Game Pass subscribers will need to way a bit longer to get Fallen Order and the other benefits of EA Play. Microsoft promises that EA Play on PC will be added to Game Pass Ultimate and Game Pass for PC subscriptions in December.

Released just shy of a year ago, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order immediately stood out from EA's so-so track record with the Star Wars license, but it was also in a pretty rough technical state at launch. Fallen Order isn't set to receive special next-gen upgrades (at least, not yet), but it will be interesting to see how much the added power of the new Xbox consoles help with performance and loading times as-is.

Earlier this year, Fallen Order received a free New Game+ update on Star Wars Day. Even if you already finished Cal Kestis' story a year ago, perhaps you'll want to go through it again with all your ponchos, BD-1 skins, and Kyber crystals unlocked while all the newcomers on Game Pass are just getting their feet wet. USG's guide section also has you covered on just about everything you might fight or find during your Jedi journey.
