Respawn Entertainment is rolling out a big update for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on Tuesday, a patch that takes aim at bugs and performance-related issues. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game can now run at a “solid 60 fps in Performance mode,” according to Respawn and publisher Electronic Arts.

On PS5, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor also gets support for variable refresh rates, a feature Sony added to its current-gen console in April.

On PC, Respawn says it’s delivering “additional performance [and] optimization improvements,” including support for Nvidia’s DLSS technology, but did not provide further specifics. That may be disappointing to players on PC, who have complained for months in Steam reviews about poor performance, frame drops, and crashes in Jedi: Survivor. Patch 7 for Jedi: Survivor does promise various crash fixes and bug fixes, according to Respawn’s patch notes.

Read on for details from patch 7 for Jedi: Survivor.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is available now for PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X. Versions of the game are in the works for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
