Don’t Fall Into This Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Game-breaking Bug

EA is currently working on a fix for a game-breaking bug in Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order that forces players to restart the campaign, losing potentially hours of progression.

The bug can be found on Dathomir, one of the planets provided as a destination option when the game allows players to choose their own path for the first time. The area is limited for lower-powered players as it requires the use of Force abilities to properly navigate. However, a chasm that should require a double-jump to cross can be navigated across without the jump. The problem is, you can’t make the journey back without the skill.

Because of Jedi Fallen Order’s single-slot save mechanic that is tied to meditation points, it means any players who meditate while across the chasm are then stuck there for good, unable to progress due to a lack of correct force powers and unable to back-track because of the need to double-jump. The only solution is to start the game all over again.
