Star Wars Jedi Survivor PS5

We had a great time with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor when it arrived earlier this year, but let's be honest, the technical performance wasn't great. The game's performance mode, which targeted 60 frames-per-second at a reduced resolution, was inconsistent, and it even struggled to keep it locked to 30 if you used the quality mode. Today, Respawn Entertainment has just released a new patch that aims to smooth out a lot of these issues.

Available to download and install now on PS5, the update's main focus is on the game's performance. According to the official site, performance mode has been "completely reworked to substantially improve player experience". Various optimisations and the deactivation of ray tracing means this mode should be much smoother with the patch installed.

Elsewhere, quality mode has also received "optimizations to help reduce FPS fluctuation", and the game now supports Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) on PS5. The patch also targets save data corruption issues and squashes a few bugs and crashes.

Here are the full patch notes for this new update:

  • This patch introduces several performance-related improvements* on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S including:
    • Performance mode has been completely reworked to substantially improve player experience.
      • A number of GPU and CPU optimizations – along with disabling Ray Tracing – has resulted in a better player experience, including a solid 60 FPS in Performance mode.
    • Quality Mode has also received optimizations to help reduce FPS fluctuation and introduce other visual improvements.
  • Variable Refresh Rate support added for PS5.
  • Additional performance & optimization improvements for PC, including DLSS support.
  • Save system tweaks to help prevent save game corruption.
  • Fixed issues where players could not retrieve their XP after dying under certain circumstances.
  • Various crash fixes.
  • Various bug fixes & improvements across all platforms, including fixes for cloth, lighting, and UI.
