Respawn is rolling out a new patch for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor this week. The update will release across all platforms by the end of this week. The console version will launch today, 9 May and the PC version is scheduled to arrive by the end of the week.
Respawn says the patch aims to further address performance issues on PC and finally fix the HDR issues users have faced on PS5. There are also quite a number of stability tweaks for PC on raytracing and other VFX.

While the update will improve performance across the board, Respawn has stated in the patch notes that this update won’t fix everything. The PC version still remains a focus for the developer and it is working on improving the performance for users running the game with newer Intel i7 and i9 CPUs that have efficiency cores.
By the sound of things, if you’re running the game with Intel i7 and i9 efficiency core CPUs, the latest update won’t sort the problems out. Hopefully, in the next week or so, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will get another update or two which will smooth performance issues out.
The patch notes are looking promising for this week’s update. The general performance improvements seem to address some frame rate issues users have been having. But we’ll have to wait and see the feedback from gamers after the update rolls out.
The patch is the third major update for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The game launched in April to rather positive reviews. You can read our review here. Sadly, while the experience is spectacular, the PC performance has been met with some nasty feedback from gamers. Read the full patch notes here or below:
