Star Wars Jedi Survivor download stuck – If you came here looking for more intel on the ‘Star Wars Jedi Survivor download stuck’ issue on Steam, then you are at the right place. A lot of users are facing this issue. Don’t worry. You are not alone.
One of the most anticipated AAA titles of 2023, is finally here. Jedi Survivor is a sequel to Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, that came out four years ago, in 2019. Jedi Survivor took everything Fallen Order has and improved it. Especially the graphics.
Unfortunately, the PC release of Star Wars Jedi Survivor is not treating everyone equally, if you ask me. Star Wars Jedi Survivor on Steam is experiencing a lot of problems where either the download of the game is getting stuck after a certain point, or the download is extremely slow.
There are already a lot of discussions regarding this on the forums already. And it looks like the installation/download bar is reluctant to move or make any sort of progress for some players, no matter what they do. Now, this makes sense in the case of users who do not have high download speeds. But this is happening to people sitting with literally 1 GB/s speed, as well. Now the question is, is this some sort of bug or glitch? Does this require any specific fix?
Fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor Steam Download Stuck
Let me start by saying that this is an extremely common issue with AAA titles on Steam. It has happening since 2020. The reason behind slow download speeds is most likely overloaded servers. Hundreds of thousands of people are trying to download the game at the same time. If you just wait a few hours after the release, you can avoid problems like these.
Anyway, before we move any further in this article, there is some basic stuff that I would like you to try, and these fixes work most of the time:
- Pause your Star Wars Jedi Survivor download on Steam, and wait for your download speed to hit 0. As soon as it does, resume the download.
- The second thing you can do is restart Steam, or your entire PC (Works every time).
- Finally, restart the entire download. It doesn’t matter, even if you have already downloaded a hefty chunk. It is better than being stuck at the same place for a whole day. Cancel the download > Go to your Steam Library > Right-click on Star Wars Jedi Survivor > Select ‘Manage’, then ‘Uninstall’ to uninstall the game > Start the download again.
Now, let me tell you how I fixed this issue on my PC. I was having the exact same issue where the huge COD MW2 would take hours to complete. The download and installation used to be extremely slow. In fact, the speed used to drop to a couple of B/s at times. What fixed the issue was, I had 2 WD Blue M.2 NVMe SSDs, one on each slot. I had MW2 installed on the second SSD. What I did was, I uninstalled it and installed it on the SSD where my Windows was installed. The problem got fixed immediately.
What I think might actually be the issue
You see, there could be a huge possibility that, for some of you, the download is not actually stuck. And there is no bug or glitch involved in this.
Steam has evolved a lot in the last few years. It doesn’t handle downloads the way it used to, a few years ago. If you check your Star Wars Jedi Survivor download on Steam, you will notice two icons under the download. The first one is ‘downloaded,’ and the second one is ‘installed.’
Steam now downloads and installs the game side-by-side, which is way different from what things used to be a few years ago.
Previously, Steam used to download all the files from the servers on the PCs first, then the installation used to take place. Now, both processes take place at the same time.
And, then there are other obvious prerequisites like the C++ Redistributable and the latest DirectX, that Steam proceeds to install automatically, as well.
The file size of Star Wars Jedi Survivor is a whopping 130 GB on PC. So, by no means, it is a small game. The process did not take much longer for me as I am using a Samsung 970 Evo NVMe SSD that has Read and Write speeds of up to 3500 MB/s and 3000 MB/s, respectively. But for normal HDD users, even if they have a 7200 RPM one, the entire installation process is going to take some time. And there is no way to speed up the procedure.
