  • 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.

The PC version of the game has already received the fixes coming to console on 5/2.

We are hard at work on patches that will further improve performance and fix bugs across all platforms. Thank you for your support, patience and, most of all, your detailed feedback! Let us know if you run into any further issues.

It should be noted that there aren't a lot of details in those PC patch notes. They simply note that there are unspecified improvements to non-raytraced rendering. Meanwhile, the console version of the game has listed some specific fixes, including a few that address some of our grievances in our review. Don't count on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to be completely patched up overnight, since it launched in such a questionable state that Respawn Entertainment had to issue an apology to PC users. Expect more fixes in the weeks ahead.

In spite of its issues, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has plenty of positives, some of which we went into in our aforementioned review. Those looking to jump in can hit the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor topic page for the latest news and guides. We'll continue watching this game in the weeks ahead as EA and Respawn attempt to fix it up.

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
