[Updated] Star Wars: Jedi Survivor 'crashing issue' reportedly worse after 'Patch 4'; corrupted save file bug reported by some

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on May 11, 2023) follows:

‘Jedi Survivor’ is the latest big game set in the Star Wars universe. Since its release, it has been praised for its gameplay and story, but it hasn’t been without its technical issues.

One of the most annoying problems that players have been dealing with is the constant crashing. A few hours ago, an update arrived that promised to finally put an end to the bug.

However, several Star Wars: Jedi Survivor players are not only still facing the crashing issue after the ‘Patch 4’, but the problem reportedly got worse. There are even some whose save files were corrupted.

Star Wars: Jedi Survivor ‘crashing issue’ got worse after ‘Patch 4’

Sadly, it seems that the latest update that was supposed to fix serious problems actually made them worse. For instance, the Jedi Survivor ‘crashing’ bug seems to be more constant after the Patch 4.


Constant crashing after patch

I could barely finish the game because it kept crashing during the final cut scene, and now when I start my NG+ it crashes after like 30 seconds of gameplay.

I literally can’t play at all anymore. Is anyone else experiencing issues like this since the last update? I played the whole game without issue before this update that happened today.

Patch 4 destroy my performance on PC and I got my first crash. I’m at the top of the observatory and it crashed in the middle of that boss fight. I’m gonna put this down for a while, let them fix this shit

But the bad news doesn’t end there, since some players are also being affected by a ‘corrupted save file’ bug that makes them lose all their progress.


Corrupted save file after update.

After i updated my game, it now says my save file is corrupted and there’s no backup. Before i start over, i’d just like to confirm there’s no easy fix to this common problem?

Data loss

Is anyone else having data loss problems? I saved the game and the game crashed and set me back 10’s of hours. Does anyone know a fix?

Sadly, there is no workaround to help avoid the crashing issue or the corruption of save files. For now, it seems best to avoid installing the latest update until the rollout of a new one.

There is still no official word on these issues from the Jedi Survivor dev team. We will update this story as events unfold in the future.
