Star Wars Jedi: Survivor's new patch addresses bugs and performance issues
Like a number of big-budget titles in the last decade or so, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was released to a wave of backlash from players over technical issues like bugs and poor performance.
In Survivor's case, there are issues with both the console (PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X|S) and PC versions, with the latter coming under particularly heavy fire for its problems.
On April 30, the companies behind the game — Electronic Arts, Respawn Entertainment and Lucasfilm Games — issued a statement of apology and promised patches were coming imminently.

The PC patch, which is due "as soon as possible" this week, will deal with issues relating to ray tracing, improve some visual effects and update streaming budgets to reduce the traversal hitching.
Further promised patches for the PC version will deal with shader issues and utilise the CPU and GPU better to improve performance across the board, with newer i7 and i9 CPUs specifically mentioned.
