Our experience with Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PS5 was mostly positive, as detailed in our full review. However, PC players are facing major performance issues; according to its Steam user reviews, 63% of them are negative just a day after launch. Even high-end components are struggling to run the game.
EA has acknowledged the issue and tweeted from their official Star Wars account, saying that they are aware of the poor performance of the game on PC and are working on fixes. However, they also warn that there is no comprehensive solution and are throwing some shade at Windows 10 users, suggesting that upgrading to Windows 11 might improve performance.
This situation may sound familiar to PC gamers who faced similar problems with The Last of Us Part I on PC, which launched with severe issues despite being delayed to meet quality standards for the PC platform.
Rock Paper Shotgun reports that the game is a “hot mess” on Valve’s handheld Steam Deck, particularly disappointing considering its predecessor, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, was a launch title for the Deck and ran without major issues. EA has not mentioned the Steam Deck in its note about fixes, and it seems that The Last of Us continues to run poorly on the device despite multiple waves of fixes.
