Star Wars Jedi: Survivor developer Respawn has a fresh patch arriving this week for its Fallen Order sequel, which launched with several bugs on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 last month. The console patches will be available today, with the PC patch arriving later this week.
One major issue being fixed on PS5 specifically is an HDR value mismatch that would cause HDR setups to display incorrectly for PS5 users. On both consoles, expect a number of bugs to be addressed, ranging from various crash fixes to a “severe” animation issue that would result in the game breaking at a crucial narrative sequence.
PC players have had a rougher time with Jedi: Survivor, and they’ll be receiving a number of fixes targeted solely at that platform. Performance improvements are where the bulk of these fixes lie, and Respawn says that this patch will launch “as soon as possible” on PC. There’ll still be more fixes coming in future updates, and Respawn says that it’s working on improving performance on newer i7 and i9 CPUs, general performance improvements to both CPU and GPU utilization, and various bug fixes.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor players have reported a number of issues with the game since it arrived on April 28, including a bug that caused players to permanently lose XP, missing preorder items, and generally shoddy performance on every platform.
Publisher Electronic Arts promised that it’s working on a fix for these many issues–especially on PC–and that it will continue to monitor the game’s performance. “We are aware that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor isn’t performing to our standards for a percentage of our PC players. We are committed to fixing these issues as soon as possible.”
In GameSpot’s Star Wars Jedi: Survivor review, Jordan Ramée said the game “improves upon its predecessor’s gameplay and storytelling to deliver an engrossing story of a Jedi grappling with morality.”
