Star Wars Jedi: SurvivorThe bug that came out last week overshadowed how good this game is. But now that Respawn and EA have patched the game to improve its performance, it’s easier to buy it.

And, if you claimed any version of the game with your PlayStation Plus subscription (in other words, if you didn’t explicitly purchase the game), you won’t be eligible for the enhanced price. this level. You will have to pay $49.99 to get the remaster.
