Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Gets Important Update on PC

Respawn has released the first major patch for the PC version of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. After launch, many fans had to deal with numerous performance issues, which prompted Respawn to issue an official statement on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s performance complaints on launch day. Now, the developer appears to be fulfilling its promise to fix these performance issues.

The months leading up to the release of Star Wars Jedi Knight : Survivors have been filled with anticipation, especially after the success of Fallen Order a few years ago. While reviews and general first impressions showed Respawn’s sequel as promising, its reception was largely dampened by numerous performance issues at launch. These issues range from broken HDR on the PS5’s Jedi: Survivor to game-breaking bugs that would prompt players to completely restart the game. Fortunately, fans don’t have to wait for developers to fix these issues on all platforms.

In its latest update, Respawn released a major patch for PC performance issues, which it claims will help improve performance on “non-ray-traced rendering.” It’s unclear if this patch specifically addresses framerate issues or HDR rendering flaws, as the developer hasn’t provided a detailed update yet. Respawn will likely follow up with more patches for the PC version of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor in the coming days. Regardless, the patch demonstrates a much-needed effort by Respawn amid growing frustration among Star Wars gamers.

Console players will also receive the fix, Respawn said, as the studio announced that the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S patches will go live on May 2. The update will fix a number of issues, including the Jedi: Survivor Chamber of Duality bug, multiple crashes in different areas of the game, rendering issues, and more. Either way, time will tell how far these patches go in helping the gaming community regain confidence.

It’s worth noting, however, that despite its performance issues, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has become more popular on PC than its predecessor. At the time of writing, SteamDB records Jedi: Survivor’s peak concurrent users at 67,855, a significant increase from Jedi: Fallen Order’s 46,550. Now, it will be interesting to see how far those numbers go in the coming weeks as the patch makes its way to PC and consoles.
