Few PS5 updates released this year will prove more important than patch 1.02 for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Out now on Sony servers — so you needn't worry if you are picking the game up this Friday — it's turned what was a great game with numerous technical flaws into a simply excellent one. Before you begin playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (whenever that may be), hit that Options button first and check you're at least using version 1.02.
You see, there's a night and day difference between what will be available on PS5 launch day and what we were playing for the vast majority of our review process. Running on version 1.01, the Jedi: Fallen Order follow-up suffers from an absurd amount of screen tearing — especially in the game's large hub world — and a frame rate that finds it impossible to stay near a 60 frames-per-second target. It was a real disappointment since the game itself is so good, as explained in our Star Wars Jedi: Survivor PS5 review.
