The most significant patch for Star Wars Jedi, Survivor has been released by EA and Respawn Entertainment. It extends the game’s upgrades to PC, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and other popular platforms.
The console Quality and Performance modes have significantly improved due to the Patch 7, as noted by EA. Meanwhile, the addition of NVIDIA DLSS support propels the PC version to the fore.
To guarantee a rock-solid 60 frames per second performance, Ray Tracing has been temporarily disabled in the Performance Mode for PS5 and Xbox. Along with additional support for Variable Refresh Rate on the PS5, other technical improvements have also been made to both consoles’ Quality Mode.
An enhanced save system intended to avoid game corruption, multiple crash fixes, and more is now available to PC users who first had several technical issues with the game.
Even after a significant day-one download, several players found Star Wars Jedi Survivor to be problematic, despite the game’s favorable and commercial reviews upon release in April. The studio released several updates in the weeks that followed its debut, but there was a time of relative quiet as they likely concentrated on this major performance-boosting upgrade.
IGN said in review, which gave the updated version a 9/10, “If Respawn continues to produce games in the vein of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and Fallen Order, it could very well conclude the best Star Wars trilogy in the last 30 years, no doubt about it.”
