Expect Star Wars Jedi: Survivor to run better on PC thanks to the game’s latest update

EA and Respawn Entertainment have just released patch 5 for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on PC, delivering several PC-specific improvements as well as various fixes, stability, and performance improvements that will apply to the game on PC and consoles. 

On PC, further changes have been made to the game to reduce hitching and improvements have been made to the game’s thread handling when ray tracing is turned off. This should enable higher framerates in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PCs with high core counts, and increase the game’s framerate stability by reducing hitching.
