The long-awaited sequel to the Star Wars Jedi series, Survivor, has received positive reviews since its release. However, PC version of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor reportedly suffers from significant performance issue that are leaving many players disappointed.
Reviewers have pointed out that the game struggles with serious frame rate problems. According to popular YouTuber Skill Up, even the best available hardware, including an RTX 4090 and AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, fails to achieve 60fps consistently. Skill Up also noted that the game’s CPU and GPU utilization remains stuck at 30%, indicating poor optimization. Additionally, the game apparently has a major audio bug that affects every cutscene.
PC Gamer also reported issues with the game’s performance, stating that cutscenes often run at 15fps, while the open world sections barely achieve 35fps on an RTX 2080 Super. The problem persists even after tweaking the graphics settings.
EA, the publisher of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, has acknowledged these issues and promised to issue several patches in the coming weeks, with bug fixes, performance improvements, and accessibility features. However, it remains to be seen when the problems will be fully resolved.
The performance problems with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor come at a time when 2023 has seen several subpar PC ports, including Wild Hearts and The Last Of Us Part 1, the latter of which recently received an update.
PC players who were eagerly awaiting the release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor are hoping that the upcoming patches will significantly improve the game’s performance and deliver a better gaming experience.
