New Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Update Brings Major Fix to PS5 and Xbox Series X

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor's performance mode on consoles has finally been fixed.

A new patch for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has today gone live and it brings a major fix to those on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Despite being largely well-received since launching earlier this year, one of the main pieces of criticism aimed at Jedi: Survivor has been tied at the game's performance. Specifically, the latest Star Wars game featured inconsistent performance that was plagued by a variety of different bugs. Fortunately, developer Respawn Entertainment has heard this feedback and has now pushed out a patch that should make these troubles a thing of the past. 

As of this moment, Patch 7 for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is available to download for all platforms. This is the first update that Survivor has received since July and brings a "completely reworked" performance system to the console versions of the game. Specifically, Respawn says its new Performance mode contains a variety of optimizations that have made for a greatly improved experience. In addition to this, a couple of tweaks have also been made to Jedi: Survivor's Quality mode and a handful of bugs have also been squashed. All in all, this is likely the biggest and most notable update that Survivor has received so far and should fix the game's main problem. As such, if you've been holding off on playing for yourself, now might finally be the time to jump in.
