Slow loading times are a common problem in games, even in the modern era. PC gamers far and wide are used to this blight nowadays. Many gamers opt for some form of solid-state storage to help alleviate the negative impact, but hardware can only do so much. Sometimes, a game or piece of software is just busted and needs some work to help optimize loading of assets. And sadly, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order seems to have fallen on the wrong side of this problem. And not only were loading issues reported, some users reported issues with variable framerates that would negatively impact gameplay.
Gamers all over reported some major issues with loading time delays in some areas. The issue wasn’t enough to keep them from enjoying the game, but some scenes took so long to load that the immersion of a tense moment could have been shattered. Wonkiness with resolution settings and bugged UI elements certainly didn’t help either.
The developer has pushed out the 550MB patch on PC, looking to deal with some of these problems. No word yet on when such a fix will come to console versions of the game.
Now Respawn has pushed out a patch to deal with the problems seen most often on launch. With this update PC gamers should see a mild improvement in load times first and foremost. Other bugs have been patched as well. Some other minor issues are also fixed. Players reported issues with menu UIs breaking, as well as some textures bugging out in some scenes. These problems have corrected in this patch.
