Many new games experience issues when they are first released or even after updates. Star Wars Jedi: Survivor players have been vocalizing their frustration with PC crashes since the game’s release. Others have claimed that Jedi Survivor can’t even launch on PC as well. In this guide, we will be going over some check fixes that might help fix the issue so that you can play the game smoothly.

Why is Jedi Survivor Crashing on PC?

According to a tweet shared by EAStarWars, it is possible the crashes are being caused by specific PC build configurations. In the Tweet, the Publisher theorizes that those running “high-end” machines could be most at risk for the issues.

It is also noted that some players could be facing crashes for other reasons, some of which are detailed in the fix ideas below.

When it comes to games crashing or struggling to launch, there can be many different reasons causing the problem, and they can require some trial and error to pin down. According to a discovery made by Jedi: Survivor players on Reddit, Fallen Order and Survivor happen to use the exact same folder for all the game configuration settings.

For example, if Fallen Order has been previously downloaded on the PC you are launching Survivor, some of the flies and settings could get mixed up or overlap. The best fix for this is to delete the folder altogether and reinstall the game. This will create a whole new folder that is clean and ready to go, letting the game run a lot smoother.
