Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

While Star Wars Jedi: Survivor finally launched today, the experience isn't as smooth and pleasing for everyone, as a number of PC gamers are reporting issues.

In what is becoming pretty much a consistent factor for games designed primarily with consoles in mind, it appears that effort to optimize for some PC configurations have fallen short, and the folks at Respawn have just acknowledged the issue and promised fixes (in due time, as they need to be tested) with a message on social media. 

We are aware that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor isn't performing to our standards for a percentage of our PC players, in particular those with high-end machines or certain specific configurations. 

For example, players using cutting-edge, multi-threaded chipsets designed for Windows 11 were encountering problems on Windows 10, or high-end GPUs coupled with lower-performing CPUs also saw unexpected frame loss. Rest assured, we are working to address these cases quickly. 

While there is no single, comprehensive solution for PC performance, the team has been working on fixes we believe will improve performance across a spectrum of configurations. We are committed to fixing these issues as soon as possible, but each patch requires significant testing to ensure we don't introduce new problems. Thanks for understanding and apologies to any of our players experiencing these issues. We will continue to monitor performance across all platforms and share updated timing as soon as it is available. 

The Star Wars Jedi Team 

Of course, this is partly understandable, considering that PC gaming involves such a wide variety of configurations, but it's also understandable that gamers aren't as ready to expect this kind of issues from large teams working on high-budget games. 

As a consequence, the game is now labeled with "mostly negative" review on Steam, which is very unflattering.

If you'd like to read more about the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which is also available for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, you should definitely read our enthusiastic review and our interview with senior producer Blair Brown and design director Jeff Magers. You can also watch the latest trailer to see what the game is all about.

Speaking of the review, our Erren Van Duine praised the game's visuals, map design, fluid and customizable gameplay, and abundance of side content.

 

Incidentally, yesterday Respawn shared a handy map with all the release times depending on the region. You can use it to find out how much longer you have to wait.
