[Update]: Thanks to a couple of updates, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is now looking a whole lot better! More problems still remain, however, so you might want to give Respawn another week or so before finally diving in.

If you loved 2019's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and were looking forward to its ambitious new sequel, I'm afraid I have some good and bad news to deliver. The good news is that not only has Star Wars Jedi: Survivor just been unleashed onto PC and consoles, but it's also a notable improvement over the original!

Unfortunately, the bad news is really bad because the PC version is currently suffering from a wide array of performance problems. These range from constant stuttering to endless loading screens and even hard crashes, so it's mostly stuff that's going to be hard to turn a blind eye to even if you're excited to dive in.

As such, I would recommend doing the same thing you should be doing with most big games these days - just pretend it releases next month. Yeah, waiting a couple of weeks longer does suck, but in return you'll be able to enjoy a game that's (hopefully) devoid of bugs and major issues, whereas starting now would have you essentially roll the dice to see if you'd even be able to start the campaign.

Speaking of which, allow me to share with you one of the gameplay trailers showing off the new storyline along with bits and pieces of the improved combat system. Have a look:

To end all of this on a positive note, it's well worth mentioning that Respawn has stated that they're aware of the performance problems and are already working on a solution. When exactly that solution will come, however, they did not announce just yet.

Once that changes, or the update suddenly goes live, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can read a little bit more about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and its current state over at Steam.
