If you’ve been looking for a way to celebrate May 4th, why not jump back into Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order? Revealing the free update via twitter, Respawn has made surprise additions to the game in time for the festivities.
Cosmetics, Challenges and New Game Plus:
Among the headlining features is the return of the combat arena. Once a key event in the main story, it is now available in a separate mode known as Meditation training. Here, players will be able to take on waves of enemies, all of which vary in difficulty. Each arena is set across different landmarks in the game, such as the Venator Crash site in Zeffo and the Tomb of Khujet in Dathomir. These arenas will also impose parameters players will need to complete, such as fighting without using healing items or taking damage.
If you’re feeling a bit creative, the update also lets you craft you ow challenges. Referred to as the ‘Battle Grid’, you can set parameters and assign which enemies you will face in the arena. You’ll also have access to unique enemies, such as Cal’s master Jaro Tapal and even the Inquisitor version of Cal himself.
Finally, as a bonus, players will now be able to relive the experience through New Journey+. This was a feature many have asked for since launch, but was omitted as the developers felt it ‘kind of breaks things’. They have apparently found balance with what players can carry over without affecting much of the story. You will now be able to keep everything you’ve unlocked in your previous playthrough, including cosmetic items and lightsaber parts. Understandably, skills and abilities will have to be relearned as they are integral to Cal’s journey of rediscovery.
Furthermore, they’ve also added new cosmetic items to the game, which includes Cal’s inquisitor uniform and lightsaber. This is a welcome surprise, as these were only available briefly during a pivotal point in the story.
These give us plenty of good reasons to return to an already amazing title. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience playing Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order and gave the game 9 out of 10. For more details about what we came to like, read our Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order review here!
