Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

So with the news it may finally be playable on PC I grabbed Jedi Survivor this weekend and tried it out. And the verdict is… It’s playable on my PC. I’m currently in the first open world, and I haven’t (yet) noticed any stuttering or huge drops in frame-rate or anything. The game looks pretty good, but I’m not pushing it beyond 1080p. I did have the game completely freeze up on me once, but it did not repeat once I got back to the same spot in the game. So clearly the devs are actually making progress on the performance front.

My question, for those who have played the game, is it better to follow the story path to the end and then go back and do exploration, or mess about and do what can on whatever planet you’re on until all you’re left with are doors you can’t get past and then progress the story? I seem to vaguely recall the first game gave you an ability fairly late in the story that made exploration way, way easier and don’t want to repeat that.

I would just go with your gut - explore Koboh for as long as it feels fresh. It’s pretty big. I don’t remember any ‘gotchas’ about getting abilities but you will need quite a few new ones before Koboh is completely open to you. You’ll be back plenty of times when following the plot in any case.

It’s also 30% off on Steam.

I appreciate the heads-up, thanks!

And 40% if you get the bundle but already own Jedi Fallen Order.

Director Stig Asmussen is leaving EA.

“After careful thought and consideration, Stig Asmussen has decided to leave Respawn to pursue other adventures, and we wish him the best of luck,” an EA spokesperson said in a statement. “Veteran Respawn leaders will be stepping up to guide the team as they continue their work on Star Wars Jedi: Survivor .”

Is it kinda weird for the company to make the announcement instead of him?

I’m sure this was assumed by pretty much everyone, but probably worth noting the verification a new entry is still coming, even without the director of the first two.

Noted and excited. So we’ll see this at the tail end of the current console generation, I presume?

Just started playing this on my Series X and it is already the buggiest game I’ve ever played on the console. I had a bug where I couldn’t switch stances (was fixed for now by closing to the main menu and reloading) and also crashed 3 times just changing from the galaxy to planet map in the menu using the left and right bumpers. Anyone else experience problems on Series X?

I had no trouble switching stances or crashes on the Series X. But I only played at launch and was on the planet where they finally let you loose in a big open area. I was exploring that open area, and then got distracted by other games that were released. I need to get back.

I bought it for PC during the Autumn Steam sale and it’s locked up 2-3x on me in about 7-8 hours of play time. Still enjoying it though.

Picked this up last night for 50% off, and, this game looks incredible on an Xbox Series X in Quality Mode. Maybe the best-looking game I can recall.

I want Respawn to make a new shooter please.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck the Rancor

I tried quality mode on PS5 and it looked incredible but ran like shit. Performance mode all the way, baby

Really? Quite happy with the frame rate on Xbox Series X Quality mode.

Yeah, quality mode was how I played on Xbox, I really enjoyed the game and didn’t experience any frame problems and, luckily enough, few bugs. Really great game.

I might just be spoiled with 60fps, that 30 just doesnt cut it anymore. Plus, this type of game begs for super fluid movement/combat. I don’t even miss the superior quality.

I’ve never been bothered by 30 fps, so maybe that’s part of it. I have a 4K tv, 1080p doesn’t cut it for me anymore.

It doesn’t feel like 30 to me. But I’ve also got a new TCL TV that has Freesync Premium and 120MHz refresh rate.
