Jedi: Survivor saw its release on April 28, 2023 to the utter dismay of gamers, but the writing was on the wall for the game’s release long before then. Those who have played the game are initially saying that the title is not up to par in terms of smooth play even on high-end PC hardware and consoles. As Remedy’s latest action venture turned out to be another poor PC port, the Steam reviews followed suit.
Received at launch with a “mostly negative” Steam review rating, the community hasn’t been kind to the developers and EA for how they released Jedi: Survivor. The majority of players still struggle to get through the game’s various levels, with the impending doom of a crash always around the corner. What makes it even worse is that a day one patch reportedly makes the situation worse for many people.
In other news, EA has been called out individually for not crediting the translators of Jedi: Survivor. The protestors are translators themselves and are voicing their opinions on growing concern about the lack of recognition in the industry. So to speak, this is not the first time that such a situation has taken flight. God of War Ragnarok, The Callisto Protocol, and Persona 4 devs also fall short in the crediting department.
Let’s just hope things get better soon for what is otherwise a brilliantly designed title suffering from a disastrous launch. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out now. PCPlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
