Star Wars Jedi: Survivor launches very soon, but it looks like the game’s a rough experience on PC. In fact, it might be a bit of a mess all around as EA has revealed that the game will be getting a bunch of patches in the next few weeks, which sounds like a warning.
Alarm bells started ringing when Skill Up revealed that their review copy of the game was a mess on PC. While they claim that the game itself is great, the PC port is a mess, struggling to reach 40 FPS on a top-of-the-line gaming PC.
EA seemingly wanted to get ahead of this revelation, as their official Star Wars Jedi: Survivor account tweeted about patches coming in the next few weeks. Though the PC version wasn’t named, the company did say that upcoming patches would fix bugs, improve performance, and add more accessibility features.
It seems that the PS5 and Xbox Series versions of Survivor were given preferential treatment, at least if this news is anything to go by. While those versions could easily have their own bugs and performance problems, the fact that the PC port has been called out speaks volumes.
This isn’t a huge surprise as multi-platform games have struggled on either PC or console. Fans will remember how Batman: Arkham Knight was such a mess on PC that Rocksteady offered refunds passed the usual Steam etiquette. Most recently, The Last of Us Part 1 on PC was deemed a huge mess, with the Steam Deck version looking worse than the PS3 original.
Hopefully, these patches fix all of the issues, as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor appears to be a great game on console. Numerous reviews have called it a huge improvement over Fallen Order, which was already a good game. Either way, it looks like PC players will have to wait for a few patches before playing as Cal Kestis again.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor comes to PS5, Xbox Series, and PC tomorrow, on April 28.
