Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s Early Impressions Hint At Another Lousy PC Version

The early reviews for the PC version have suggested to wait for post-release patches to fix the game.

Story Highlights

  • The Star Wars Jedi: Survivor PC version is reportedly filled with performance issues, leading to terrible frame rate drops, stuttering, and a jittery experience on high-end PCs.
  • The visual, audio, and all the other glitches hint towards a bad PC version, many reviewers using RTX 3080Ti have pointed out the issues for the PC port.
  • The Xbox version appears to run smoother than the other ports, according to the reviewer Fextralife which featured a detailed video review of the game.
  • A day-one patch is expected to fix the performance issues, but many users anticipate that the entry requires a lot of updates before it becomes a smooth experience on PC.

As the launch date of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor draws closer, the fans have been increasingly excited to know how well the game holds out performance-wise. Unfortunately, the entry appears to be loaded to the brim with notorious issues such as stuttering and frame drops on the platforms. Things are especially bad on high-end PCs, as found in many reviews that have come out before its release suggesting a lousy PC version for the title.

Many notable figures on Twitter have called out the bad performance of the PC version, which is even outranking the good aspects of the Game of the Year contender for some reviewers due to how much it hinders the user experience. For instance, one review by PC Master Race rocking a “Ryzen 9 5950X, 32GB of RAM and an RTX 3080 Ti” was only able to barely hit the “30-40 FPS” mark while playing the PC version of the game.

It is worth noting the game even failed to keep up the 50 FPS threshold with RTX 4090, as reported by several reviews of the game. The YouTuber, Fextralife, deeply dissected the optimization issues and featured a detailed video alongside proof that pointed out the wide variety of bugs affecting the audio and visuals of the entry. All the experienced stuttering and performance dips were also presented in the video.

The YouTuber calls the performance on PC “absolutely abysmal,” and he is “extremely disappointed.” The recorded footage also looks to be filled with lag and stutters in the frame rates, proving the notion of the reviewer. The optimization of the title was quite bad near the start of the game, and issues occurred throughout the playthrough.

The user could barely hit the 60 FPS mark on an RTX 3080 Ti on just high settings. Nonetheless, the FPS was far from stable for the reviewer; Star Wars Jedi: Survivor would sometimes drop below the 30 FPS mark or even remain in the single-digit FPS for the YouTuber who vigorously tested the anticipated entry. The tester alleges that even a high-end gaming rig built using $6000 to $7000 would still have issues due to the flawed PC port.

The audio bugs were also quite apparent for the user, as he experienced a lot of dialogue desync issues during cutscenes throughout the entire playthrough, but it will be fixed before the game releases. There was also a slew of random graphical glitches that have been featured in the review footage above. Hence, FextraLife has asked that PC users not buy the title after the immediate launch and wait for potential fixes in the future.

The Xbox version, on the other hand, was noted to run without any audio, performance, or graphical issues in the way. However, some reviews have also pointed out the impediments that are plaguing the PlayStation 5 version. A day-one patch will likely fail to improve all the lingering performance issues because of the reportedly horrendous state of the PC version, but subsequent updates down the road may improve the game.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor will see a global release tomorrow on the PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S and Series X. The sequel to the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen order seems to follow a worrying recent trend that has also invaded entries like Hogwarts Legacy, The Callisto Protocol, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, and more recent releases. However, it is expected that future updates will smoothen out the rough edges of the title for the PC version.
