Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Patch 5 Now Available, Notes and More
In the continually evolving universe of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, fans can now expect a new update to enhance their gameplay experience. Electronic Arts announced today that a ~3GB update, labeled Patch 5, is available for download on PC. The same update will soon roll out for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S, the timing for which will be confirmed later.
One of the significant areas addressed in Patch 5 is the game’s overall performance and stability. On PC, developers have improved the content caching system to reduce hitching, ensuring smoother gameplay and less interruption due to technical issues. This relieves players who have experienced glitches and delays, especially during high-intensity combat situations.
Furthermore, a more efficient thread-handling mechanism is implemented when raytracing is turned off. Raytracing, responsible for creating more realistic and immersive graphics, can sometimes cause performance issues when not correctly managed. Refining the way threads are handled in this scenario will significantly improve the game’s performance, offering a better visual experience.
Without further ado, you can find the complete patch notes below:
