EA confirmed that there would be a Jedi Survivor day one patch, and the update is now available on PC – and has been dated for release on May 2, 2023 for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 – with a list of fixes detailed.

“Our first patch will arrive on launch day across all platforms,” stated EA Star Wars. This follows on from concerns that the game is not fully optimised for PC, which has prompted many to be concerned with the graphics modes on PS5 too.

So while we’re still waiting on the day one patch on consoles (it’s expected on May 2nd), there are still issues on PC that need resolving, including frame-rate stutters and graphical bugs. There was also a day zero patch, according to this Reddit post.

Has the day one patch fixed Jedi Survivor?

Following on from the May 1st patch, Jedi Survivor has seen improvements to the game that have adjusted frame rate, ray tracing, and many of the performance issues holding the game back.

Gamers have reported back that the patch has “slightly improved” the PC performance, with optimisations to frame rate and CPU / GPU allocation making the biggest difference. Others have suggested huge changes to in-game performance, while major issues with the game crashing still persist.

Despite some gamers reeling in the improvements heralded by the day one patch, it seems that some are still slightly upset by the game’s performance. Here’s what one Redditor had to say:

What is in the Jedi Survivor day one patch?

The first patch for consoles will include the following fixes, as per the official EA Star Wars Twitter account.

PC Patch:

  • Performance improvements for non-raytraced rendering.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S patch:

  • Multiple crashes fixed across PlayStation and Xbox Series X|S and various areas of the game.
  • Fixed crashes that we tied to skipping cinematics
  • Performance improvements across PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S
  • Fixed an issue with dynamic cloth inside the Mantis
  • Fixed various rendering issues
  • Fixed an issue with register Nekko colours not saving
  • Fixed an issue with registered Nekko disappearing from the stable
  • Fixed issues with cinematic dialogue overlapping
  • Fixed various collision issues
  • Fixed an issue with enemy AI remaining in T pose during Photo Mode
  • Fixed a freeze that occasionally occured while talking to Doma
  • Fixed a bug where the BD-oil VFX did not properly render
  • Fixed an issue were players were getting stuck inside the Chamber of Duality if you didn’t save after leaving the chamber and die.

EA say that the fixes in the console patch have already been applied to the PC version of the game. Over launch weekend, EA declared that “In the weeks ahead, [we will] deploy patches that will:

  • Fix bugs
  • Improve performance
  • Add more accessibility

As expected, patches for Jedi Survivor will fix bugs and improve performance. This is normal for a newly launched game, as they often experience issues prior to launch due to time-restraints. It has fast become the norm for games to launch with an un-polished product, only for the final touches to be added shortly after.

The current issues with PC performance, which have the game running at sub-60FPS on RTX 4090 gaming PCs, are expected to be fixed shortly, however there are no guarantees.

We’ve recently had a go at finding the best graphics settings for the game on PS5, and realised that the performance mode in-game was not actually capturing a stable 60FPS. This seems to be a recurring issue with not just the console game, but the PC game too, so we’d like to see some more optimisation of performance modes too.

Additionally, according to the Jedi Survivor FAQ: “Players who purchase a physical copy of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will be required to connect to the internet to install a Day 1 patch but can play offline after that, if they so choose. Players who purchase the game on a digital storefront will receive the patch with their game download.”

When is the next Jedi Survivor patch?

The first post-launch patch for Star Wars Jedi Survivor is already available on PC, and will be deployed for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles on May 2, 2023 as per the official EA Star Wars Twitter account.

The way things are going, the game is being massively dumped on by everyone on the internet, with review bombing having already begun. The game saw incredible reviews from the publishers, but likely they were gaming on PCs with RTX 4090s and such. In the hands of the regular consumers, it seems as though there’s been a different reception.
