EA and Respawn have pushed out a patch for the troubled Star Wars Jedi: Survivor that aims to smooth out performance issues for certain PC and console players as well as implement a host of much-needed bug fixes that have been plaguing players in the days since release.
The patch is out now for PC and, at the time of writing, should be rolling onto consoles in the very near future.
On PC, performance for those playing with non-raytraced visuals has reportedly been improved, while on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S it simply flags general performance improvements.
The patch also reportedly fixes a number of instances of the game crashing or soft-locking, including a particularly nasty sequence that was tripping players up and having them permanently stuck inside the Chamber of Duality. There are also fixes to more minor issues like VFX not being properly applied and audio triggers overlapping.

For what its worth, we reviewed the game on PlayStation 5 and while there’s certainly room for improvement to the framerate and resolution performance on console we had a great time, saying, “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor sharpens combat and exploration to a fine point while delivering a story that goes all in on its characters and human drama. Some minor pacing issues can’t stop the game from achieving exciting new heights for the series, if you’re willing to let it take you there.”
