We were largely satisfied with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor when we played it on PS5 – here’s our full review – but it has major issues on PC. A day after launch, 63 percent of Steam reviews are negativecomplaining that even high-end components cannot run the game properly.
Now publisher EA is starting to own it. “We are aware that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is not performing to our standards for a percentage of our PC players,” a tweet of the official EA Star Wars account.
EA promises to “address these cases quickly” and is already working on solutions – but it seems clear from the company’s wording that it doesn’t want to get your hopes up too high, warning that “there is no single, all-encompassing solution for PC performance. ” The company also seems to be throwing some shade at players using Windows 10 instead of Windows 11.
If this whole story sounds mighty familiar, that’s because it’s similar to the saga we’re dealing with right now The Last of Us Part I on PC, a game (such as Eat: Survivor!) was specifically so delayed would meeting those quality standards yet launched with so many serious issues that it received “mostly negative” reviews on Steam.
A rock paper gun reports that the game is a “hot mess” especially on the Steam Deck, which is a shame considering the original Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a Deck launch marketing title and ran quite well. EA doesn’t mention the Deck at all in its fixes note. Last I tested, The last of us still wasn’t running well on the Deck despite several waves of fixes.
