Starfield: First Major Patch Is Here With Lots Of Useful Fixes!

Bethesda has announced the first real update to Starfield, which includes several fixes and changes that fans have been asking for.



Bethesda has released the first post-launch update for Starfield, the massive sci-fi role-playing game that recently received very positive reviews from us. The game has been an enormous success so far, breaking records for Bethesda and helping to boost Xbox console sales. But despite the generally positive reception to the title, there is, of course, always room for improvement.

Starfield also has its flaws, which fans have had to contend with since launch. Many agree that the game is the least buggy of all Bethesda titles to date. But there are still some problems that have cropped up. Fortunately, some of these issues are being addressed with the latest Starfield update, which is available to download now for PC players and those playing on Xbox Series X and S consoles.

The Starfield 1.7.29 update makes stability improvements when installing Xbox Series X/S versions of the game, as well as general stability and performance improvements across the board to reduce crashes and improve the game’s frame rate.

In addition, bugs affecting three of Starfield’s missions have been fixed in the new update. The missions All That Money Can Buy, Into the Unknown and Shadows in Neon now offer players a much smoother experience.

Bethesda is also planning several future updates to the game. In addition to patch notes for update 1.7.29, fans have been given a glimpse of what to expect in the game in the future. Future updates promise brightness and contrast controls, an HDR calibration menu, an FOV slider, Nvidia DLSS support for the PC version, 32:9 ultrawide monitor support for the PC version, and a button to eat your food instantly instead of having to store it in inventory.

Those looking for more new Starfield content will also have plenty to look forward to. Bethesda has already confirmed that at least two expansions are on the way. The first is titled Shattered Space. It should be noted that the game’s premium DLC will not be available for free to Xbox Game Pass subscribers. But those who opted for the Premium Edition Upgrade for early access will get them.

Lastly, the developer assured fans that it is still working on bringing official mod support to PC and console, noting that it hopes to have it ready next year.

So it will be a bit of a wait, but it will probably be an excellent excuse to play through the game again in 2024.
