How to Fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor Won’t Launch Issue

The Star Wars Jedi Survivor won’t launch on PC problem is definitely not something players want to deal with. And especially if they’ve preordered the game and can’t wait to play it. Unfortunately, that’s precisely what many are experiencing at the moment. Luckily for them and you, this inconvenience seems to be a relatively easily solvable problem. Namely, the fact that you can’t start SW Jedi Survivor on Steam or EA App has to do with the latter. Specifically, the EA App is the one causing problems no matter what platform you play on. That’s because all EA games always launch the App even if you own the game on another platform.

“Every time I try to launch the game, I get a message from EA saying there was an error on their end and to try again later,” says Steam user bkjolly77. On the other hand, Reddit user ReconWolf_ shares his experience: “Jedi Survivor literally doesn’t launch on Steam, and launching through the EA app shows ‘You don’t have access’ error.”

Hence, what’s the solution here? All you have to do is to repair the EA app. Namely, a number of players have reported that this is precisely what has solved the “SW Jedi Survivor Won’t Launch” issue for them. Here’s how to do it:

  • Launch EA App.
  • Head to the main menu.
  • Choose “Help”.
  • Use the “App Recovery” feature.
  • Restart your PC.
  • Launch the game.
