Although Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launched in a miserable state, especially on PC where countless gamers stumbled upon it crashes and other issues, EA and Respawn are releasing a week-one patch on May 1st for PC and May 2nd for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. The first since the game’s Day Zero patch, the exact timing for this fix has not yet been announced, so be sure to check for updates when you launch the game. Here are the full patch notes as released by EA.

While I haven’t experienced any crashes on PlayStation 5, it’s more than obvious that some improvements can be made and it seems that this patch will try to fix some of them.
Rendering fixes should keep Cal’s hair from looking like weird spaghetti noodles on PS5, and the performance improvements should (hopefully) eliminate the stuttering (particularly in combat sections) that has plagued my playthrough so far.
The PC fixes for this patch are far more nebulous than those for consoles, and compared to the issues the game has been facing, it’s interesting that there’s no more information yet.
From the description, it’s hard to tell if the patch addresses the more annoying issues that are keeping players from, well, playing. Respawn says more updates will be coming to PC and consoles, though it’s unclear when.
