Alongside a range of improvements being made in this fourth patch, however, Respawn has made clear that it isn’t done fixing issues found in Jedi: Survivor.

Improvements coming exclusively to the PC version, which was slammed at launch for its poor performance, include updated occlusion behaviour for raytracing, alleviated traversal hitching, performance improvements for some VFX, updated handling when toggling raytracing, and more.
One change is exclusively coming to the PS5 version, that will fix an HDR value mismatch that caused HDR setups to display incorrectly.
There are several changes coming to all versions of Jedi: Survivor though, including the fixing of various save state errors, audio errors that affected some narrative moments, lightsaber marks incorrectly displaying, and an immortal boss. The full patch notes can be viewed below.
