Star Wars: Jedi Academy Gets Update that Prevents PC Players from Infiltrating Switch Servers

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy managed to be a better port than Jedi Outcast since it not only had the satisfying single-player story mode but also kept the online multiplayer mode, something Jedi Outcast did not do. The multiplayer has been a fun distraction for some, especially since a lot of people are at home doing nothing right now but there have been plenty of mean-spirited gamers who took advantage of a glitch that let PC players invade Switch servers.

Thankfully, they released Jedi Academy update 1.02 which has taken away that option. While most gamers are down for cross-play multiplayer, the fact that experienced PC players could destroy Switch players who are trying the game out online for the first time with terrible online connections, it's really unfair, courtesy of Twisted Voxel.

Here's what the update fixes:

  • Resolved various multiplayer issues to improve the player experience
  • Implemented additional multiplayer security code
  • Minor bug fixes

It's good to know that the developers listened to all the fan complaints and Switch owners can play the multiplayer of Jedi Academy in peace. Granted, we're sure that there are a number of people who are mean-spirited in the game's online multiplayer but at least newer players won't get unfairly killed by PC players.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is now available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
