Respawn and EA recently released a significant patch for “Star Wars: Jedi Survivor,” aiming to address the performance issues that plagued the game upon its launch. This update brings a range of improvements and enhancements, particularly focusing on optimizing the game’s performance for consoles and PC.
Console players will be pleased to know that the latest patch introduces a “solid 60 fps” in performance mode, ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable gaming experience. Specifically, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S users can expect a completely reworked performance mode that significantly enhances their gameplay. Ray Tracing has been disabled in this mode, allowing the developers to implement GPU and CPU optimizations that achieve the desired frame rate. Furthermore, the quality mode, which prioritizes graphical fidelity, has also seen improvements in terms of frame-rate fluctuations and overall visuals.
While the console enhancements take the spotlight, PC owners have not been forgotten. Respawn has introduced support for Nvidia’s DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) in the Windows version of the game. This technology utilizes artificial intelligence to enhance the visual quality of ray-traced games. Additionally, PC players can expect additional performance and optimization improvements to further enhance their gaming experience.
In addition to performance upgrades, the patch includes other notable fixes and features. PlayStation 5 version of the game now supports variable refresh rate for the first time. This feature, introduced by Sony in April, dynamically matches the refresh rate of the PS5 with the connected TV or monitor, reducing visual artifacts such as screen tearing and enhancing the rendering speed of scenes while minimizing input lag.
The developers have also addressed various issues, such as corrupted save-game files and a problem where players were unable to collect XP after dying under certain circumstances. The patch includes crash and bug fixes, as well as miscellaneous improvements on all platforms, ensuring a more stable and enjoyable gaming experience for all players.
“Star Wars: Jedi Survivor” is currently available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows platforms. The developers have also confirmed that ports for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are currently in development, although an official release date has not yet been announced.
Overall, Respawn and EA’s latest patch for “Star Wars: Jedi Survivor” demonstrates their commitment to continuously improving the game and addressing player feedback. By focusing on enhancing performance, introducing new features, and fixing issues, they aim to provide an immersive and enjoyable gaming experience for players across various platforms. Whether it’s console or PC gaming, “Star Wars: Jedi Survivor” continues to evolve and deliver thrilling gameplay in a galaxy far, far away.
