Story Highlights

  • The game’s latest patch emphasizes bringing more accessibility features to the game. 
  • The highlights of the update include a new high contrast mode, and audio ping functionality. 

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the sequel to the 2019-released Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, an incredible new entry in the franchise and a solid attempt at that as well. In recent times, EA has outed a new update for the RPG, and it evidently arrives months after the last time Jedi: Survivor got patched. It’s quite big on accessibility features while making improvements to an existing functionality all the same. 

We’re so grateful for the feedback you’ve provided and pleased with the refinements we’ve been able to bring to Star Wars Jedi: Survivor thus far. Of course, our team is always eager to learn more about our players’ needs, so don’t hesitate to let us know if you run into any additional issues,” reads the official blog post announcing the update.

Adding to the swath of Jedi: Survivor’s accessibility features, the latest patch boasts the incorporation of a high contrast mode that “allows players to desaturate the environment and use colors specifically for narrative and gameplay elements, making them stand out more.” On top of that, there’s another top-tier functionality called audio ping, making it possible for users to “echolocate objects and interactable elements nearby.”

Furthermore, you’ve also got more slow-motion presets to work with, thanks to Jedi: Survivor’s patch 8. It has also been made possible for players to opt for anything between their custom input values and the three presets that have just been added to the title. It’s a highly thoughtful accessibility feature that’s going to facilitate a diversity of audiences out there, if nothing more.

The presets are set at 30%, 50% and 75% and available through the shortcut menu. This will allow users to switch between multiple different slow motion values, and not just the custom value and the default game speed,” explains the patch notes post. 

For those who missed it, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor suffered a poor launch, especially on PC where it was loaded to the brim with technical issues and performance troubles. In actuality, the RPG didn’t take long to become one of the worst titles of 2023 outright for the way it presented itself on PC, much to the disappointment of players.
