Game developers are continuously working on patches to enhance gameplay and fix bugs that may disrupt a player’s experience. The latest to join the line is Respawn’s ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’ which has just launched Patch 6 that targets some of the game’s most significant issues.
What Does The Patch Address?
The Patch 6 update brings with it a slew of bug fixes, many of which are centered around a specific quest chain known for being both the most tedious and the most rewarding in the game. This quest chain, infamous for its difficulty, hides one of the game’s best cutscenes. With the new update, players can look forward to an enhanced experience where the thrill of the game isn’t hindered by frustrating glitches.
The patch, now live across PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X and S, includes the usual crash fixes and bug fixes that one would expect from a post-launch update. The update also brings to the table improvements like “collision improvements” and “improved blaster handling,” though it is yet to be seen how these changes will impact the gameplay.
Bounty Hunters and Invisible Aliens
One of the most anticipated fixes in Patch 6 is the “fix for bounty hunters not spawning.” This particular glitch made it impossible for players to complete the bounty hunter quest chain, leading to a frustrating gaming experience. The patch also addresses a bug where Caij, the New Zealand-accented alien at Pyloon’s Saloon, would become invisible. Caij plays a pivotal role in the game as he provides the location of the bounty hunters, thereby leading players to a series of optional boss fights that appear in previously-explored areas.
While the bounty hunter fights themselves are entertaining, the process of finding them, returning to Caij for the next location, and repeating the process was described as beyond tedious. With these bug fixes, players can now enjoy the game without the annoyance of missing bosses or invisible quest-givers.
Other Fixes and Improvements
Beyond the anticipated fixes, Patch 6 also offers a variety of other improvements. Among these are fixes for the “Find the Gorge’s Secret” Rumor that couldn’t be completed, the wind puzzle on Jedha, and issues with Photo Mode. The patch also ensures that the training dummy on Jedha stops sneaking around and updates the holomap map data. With these improvements, the gaming experience in ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’ is set to become more seamless and enjoyable.
An Interesting Tidbit
In an amusing side note, there’s some confusion over how 489 ‘Jedi: Survivor’ players managed to lose their lives to Rick the Door Technician. The mystery remains unsolved, but it adds an element of fun and intrigue to the gaming community’s discussions.
In conclusion, Patch 6 for ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’ brings a welcomed respite from the game-breaking bugs that plagued the bounty hunter quest chain. Through this patch, Respawn demonstrates its commitment to providing gamers with a quality experience, free from the frustration of game-breaking glitches. The gaming community eagerly awaits to see how these changes will enhance the gameplay in ‘Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
