EA and Respawn have released a new Star Wars Jedi: Survivor update, and if you've been experiencing Performance Mode woes on console, this one's for you.

When Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was released back in April, Respawn acknowledged problems with the PC version of the game and promised fixes, but the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S' woeful Performance Mode arguably flew relatively under the radar as a result.

At launch, Performance Mode fluctuated wildly in terms of frame rate, leading many players to choose Quality Mode and lock their game at 30fps instead (which brought its own raft of problems).

Now, however, Patch 7 has been released, and according to EA, it features a "completely reworked" Performance Mode that is intended to "substantially improve player experience".

EA says that the new Performance Mode features "a number of GPU and CPU optimizations", and that ray tracing has also been disabled, leading to a "solid 60fps".

If you're more of a Quality Mode fan, rest assured improvements have been made in that department as well.

According to EA, optimizations to "help reduce FPS fluctuation" have been implemented, as well as other miscellaneous visual improvements. You should notice a sharper Quality Mode experience after this update.

Other additions include Variable Refresh Rate on PS5, as well as several other performance tweaks and gameplay fixes. Make sure to check out the patch notes to see what's going on.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the sequel to 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It picks up the story of Cal Kestis, who's now on the run from the Empire and looking for a haven to keep his people safe from Imperial eyes.

As well as being released for current-gen consoles, EA has also announced that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is making its way to PS4 and Xbox One, although we don't know when just yet.
