Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Performance Is A Mess, EA Promising Fixes And Updates

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is out now, and this fantastic game by Respawn and EA is, unfortunately, facing performance issues on all platforms, especially on PC.

This game joins the unfortunate trend that PC ports of the latest AAA games are busted on launch, where even the most powerful of PC specs can still have issues running the game with decent framerate.

For folks who were there on day-1 for the Jedi: Survivor’s predecessor Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, this is deja-vu all over again.

EA, in a tweet post, acknowledges that the game “isn’t performing to our standards” and apologises for the issues when playing the game right now at launch.

Today, a patch/update has gone live on PC and consoles.

The PC version is solely focused on improving performance when the game has ray-tracing off. Meanwhile, the consoles versions are getting not only performance issues but also bug fixes, one being a soft-lock that you may encounter after two hours if you die but not rest at a more recent checkpoint.

Here are the patch notes for the May 2nd update of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PS4 and Xbox Series X|S:

  • Multiple crashes fixed across PlayStation and Xbox Series X|S and various areas of the game.
  • Fixed crashes that were tied to skipping cinematics.
  • Performance improvements across PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
  • Fixed an issue with dynamic cloth inside the Mantis.
  • Fixed various rendering issues.
  • Fixed issues with registered Nekkos.
  • Fixed issues with cinematic dialogue overlapping.
  • Fixed various collision issues.
  • Fixed an issue with enemy AI remaining in T Pose during photo mode.
  • Fixed a freeze that occasionally occurred while talking to Doma.
  • Fixed a bug where the BD-oil VFX did not properly render.
  • Fixed an issue where players were getting stuck inside the Chamber of Duality if you didn’t save after leaving the chamber and die.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is out now on PS5, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, EA App) and Xbox Series X|S. If you’re undeterred by performance issues, you’ll find a great action-platformer like what we did, but otherwise, it may be wise to wait just a bit until the game is stable.
