Developers Respawn have confirmed that the design of the lightsabers in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be fixed before the game is released.
It turns out that some fans weren’t happy with the design of Jedi: Fallen Order‘s lightsaber, and developer Respawn has stated that they intend to fix it ahead of the game’s release.
“We made a mistake on that one and since then we’ve fixed it,” said Fallen Order game director Stig Asmussen in an interview with Game Informer. “That was very fair feedback, very fair criticism, and we’ve tweaked that. We’ve also tweaked the shape of the lightsaber blade a little bit as well, too. You can see the difference right away.”
So what was the problem? Well (*puts on nerd glasses*), it seems that the original design of the Fallen Order lightsaber utilised a solid blue hue for the actual light part of the lightsaber. The issue was that some fans noticed that other lightsabers in the Star Wars universe feature a white core surrounded by a particular color.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is set to arrive on November 15 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more information and to place your pre-order, visit the game’s official website.
