How to fix ‘bypassed certain story elements’ glitch in Star Wars Jedi Survivor

When playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you may encounter an unexpected error that states the following:

  • “You have seemed to have bypassed certain story elements. Continuing to play from this point may encounter issues. If you choose to proceed anyway, loading into future Saves from the Title Screen will give you the option to reload prior to this point.”

You may also be given two options. The Load option has the following description:

  • “Continue from the last good save. You may lose some progress but will avoid game breaking issues.”

The Proceed Anyway option has the following information:

  • “Continue in the broken state. This is not recommended. Things will likely be broken.”

To see how you can fix this potentially game breaking glitch, you can take a look at this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech.

1. Based on our testing, this bug commonly appears when going from the Derelict Dam meditation point to the Southern Reach mediation point.

Normally, you should see the Bogling creatures just before the wall that requires you to double jump. If you don’t see them, then you need to respawn from the Derelict Dam meditation point and then proceed to navigate towards the Southern Reach mediation point again.

It may take several attempts to get the game to properly load in the Boglings. Once you see these creatures, then they should indicate that the game’s story has properly progressed. As a result, you should no longer see the “bypassed certain story elements” error message pop up from this point forward.

2. If the aforementioned solution did not work, then you can try power cycling your console if you are playing on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.

On the PS5, you need to turn off your console, unplug its power cord and then wait for at least 60 seconds. Afterwards, re-plug the power cable and then turn the system back on.

On the Series X or Series S, you need to press and hold the power button on the console for at least 10 seconds. Once the console has shut down, you can press the same button to turn it back on.

After power cycling your gaming system, try to play the game again to see if you are still getting the same warning notification.

3. On the PC, you can try repairing or verifying the game files.

If you are playing from the EA App, then you need to go the Library section of the application and then click Manage on the game’s icon. You can then select Repair.

On Steam, you need to open the Library section and then click on the gear icon from the product page of Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Next, you need to select “Properties…” from the drop-down menu. In the new screen, select Local Files on the left side and then “Verify integrity of game files…” on the right side of the same screen.

4. If you still can’t get rid of this unexpected error, then you need to wait until the development team at Respawn Entertainment fixes this problem in a patch update.

Hopefully, the new version will address this unexpected error.
