Players have recorded a number of issues in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, with particularly poor performance found in the PC version of the game. Respawn Entertainment confirmed that more patches are on the way, with issues like hitching on PC and a number of other bugs being investigated.
Despite these issues, the game has been critically acclaimed. In my review of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, I wrote that "Everything here is just fun, and while the more personal tone of the story may not work for everybody, it's the kind of thing that will bring me back to the vast universe of Star Wars over and over again."
Windows Central's take
More fixes are good, and hopefully these patches continue to make the game a better experience for players regardless of platform. Despite being in the middle of a second playthrough, I've still encountered absolutely no bugs, but it's clear that's not the experience many players are having right now.
