Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order: Which Edition to Buy?

Published

on

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is official and the game is now on sale ahead of a release later this year. There are a few versions of the game up for pre-order so you’ll want to pick the right edition for your interest level and your budget.

Respawn Entertainment, the developer behind Apex Legends and the Titanfall series, has revealed a brand new entry in the Star Wars video game series.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the new title and unlike Star Wars Battlefront, it’s a single-player game without a multiplayer mode or micro-transactions.

Assuming the game doesn’t get delayed, it will arrive just ahead of the holidays on November 15th. This is the release date for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. EA and Respawn haven’t announced a version for Nintendo Switch.

Now that the game’s official, retailers are officially taking pre-orders for the highly anticipated game. And given that this is a Star Wars game, many people are trying to decide if it’s worth a pre-order.

If you do decide to pre-order a copy of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, you’ll be faced with a decision: Buy the standard version of the game, snag the Deluxe Edition, or go with GameStop’s exclusive Black Series Figure Bundle.

In this guide we’ll take you through each version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and help you decide which version is the right one for you.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Standard Edition

For $60 you get the standard version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This is the no-frills edition and you get the least amount of bonus content.

The standard edition comes with a copy of the game and if you pre-order you’ll get some unique cosmetic items for your lightsaber and droid companion. If you pre-order the game for PS4 you also get a game-related theme.

If you don’t want to pay the full $60 for a copy of the game, make sure you keep an eye out for deals as we push toward the game’s release date in November. We often see retailers offer a few bucks off ahead of time.

Best Buy says that My Best Buy members who pre-order will get $10 in rewards certificates which is a tempting proposition if you plan to buy more than one game this year.

This is the most basic version of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order but it’s the version most people should buy.

Who should buy this edition of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order?

  • Causal Star Wars fans.
  • Those who don’t have a ton of time to play games and aren’t sure how much time they can invest in a single-player action-adventure game.

You can buy the standard version of the game at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, the Microsoft Store, and the PlayStation Store. We expect more retailers to follow.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Deluxe Edition

If you’re a huge Star Wars fan and don’t mind paying a little extra for some additional goodies, think about buying the Deluxe Edition for your platform of choice.

The Deluxe Edition is $70 and it nets you some additional bonuses including the pre-order bonus, a “Director’s Cut” suite of behind-the-scenes features and content, and additional unique cosmetic equipment for your adventure. EA and Respawn haven’t detailed these cosmetics yet, but we expect that information to drop soon.

So who should spend the extra money on the Deluxe Edition?

  • People who know they are going to invest a ton of time in the game.
  • People who really like to customize their characters and items.

You can buy the standard version of the game at Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, the Microsoft Store, and the PlayStation Store.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Black Series Figure Bundle

If you’re a rabid fan of the Star Wars series you might want to buy the game’s Black Series Figure bundle which is exclusive to GameStop.

The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Black Series Figure bundle is $83 and you get a 6-inch-scale action figure with your purchase. We don’t know what the figurine looks like yet.

This edition is aimed at collectors and huge fans of the series. Most people should go with the standard version or the Deluxe Edition.

Digital vs. Physical

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will come in both digital and physical formats. There are some key differences between the two and you’ll want to buy the right one for your situation.

Here are a few reasons to go with the digital version of the game:

  • You’re sick and tired of discs cluttering up your entertainment center.
  • You live in a house where discs often get lost or damaged.
  • You don’t want to locate your disc every time you want to play.
  • You want to pre-load the game and play ASAP in November.

Here are a few reasons to consider going with a physical copy of the game:

  • You’ll be able to sell it to a store like GameStop or via a reseller like Craigslist or eBay if you get tired of it, don’t want to play it again after you beat it.
  • You’ll be able to easily lend your copy out to friends or family members when you decide to move onto another game or if they want to try it before they buy.

    From the title I thought this article detailed difference between Standard and Deluxe version. No such luck.

    Sorry to be blunt; this tells us what we already know. Preordering a game entitles the purchaser to SOME type of consideration…(Wow! Who woulda thunk?!?) However, no one quite knows what that consideration (bonus) will be.

    Why not just wait until you actually have something to report?

    Is anyone else tired of buying the “Deluxe” version simply to obtain what developers once included for free? Ya know, back before major releases cost more than $100 simply because most bloody items are now a la carte?
