Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Patch 5 Reduces Hitching and Makes Drya Thornne Vincible

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Patch 4 EA

It's no secret that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor didn't release in a good state. However, slowly and surely, the game has been improving with several patches bringing performance and technical improvements now live. The latest of which was delivered to PC yesterday.

Patch 5 aims to reduce hitching by enhancing content caching. Thread handling when ray tracing is set to off also saw some improvements. Drya Thornne is no longer invincible, and void tear interactions now work as they should. The Gorocco doesn't disappear mid-combat anymore, and sound sync during one of the cinematics has been improved.
