New Jedi Survivor patch fixes a ton of bugs on all platforms

This is technically patch number four

Recommended Videos

Jedi Survivor is still trucking along, and now we’re already on patch 4 in just a few scant weeks. Modern game development, ho! This latest patch is due out today on consoles (PS5, Xbox Series X), and “as soon as possible” on PC.

So what does it deal with? Bugs, mainly! This isn’t a content patch, as it’s meant to smooth over some of the rougher edges on all platforms. Several PC-centric issues are addressed, but it’s a far cry from “the big one” that fixes hardware-specific issues. Other fixes are platform-agnostic, and include save state errors, streaming issues, and progression-halting bugs.

The Jedi Survivor team also provided “future fixes” that are on their radar, which you can read below. Most of them deal directly with the PC edition of the game, reminding folks that there is still work to do. Once (and if) it’s done though, it’ll be a relief for PC players. Jedi Survivor was a great experience for me on consoles, but I can’t imagine how rough PC users must have it.
