Starfield multiplayer modders give up because the game is 'trash'

Starfield multiplayer modders give up because the game is 'trash'

“This game is f**king trash” is a bold statement but it’s one that seemingly keeps arising, in this case it comes from the modding team responsible for one of the most popular mods for Skyrim. Skyrim Together gave players the chance to switch the game from single player to co-op and the team was hoping to bring the same ability to Starfield.

The problem is, as the above statement says, Starfield is struggling. What made Skyrim such a popular game is the hand-crafted attention to detail that Bethesda was famous for. They’d paved the way with the fantasy RPG, but also with their post-apocalyptic RPG, Fallout.

Starfield is not having a great time at the moment, sadly

Sadly, with Starfield, that feeling of deep exploration and branching depth from questing felt lacking. With so much of the exploration done by fast-travelling there’s no sense of scope. What worked in Skyrim, being able to wander off the beaten path and get lost in caves or dungeons, was removed in Starfield.

So, the modding team has decided not to bother with the game. Explaining more on their Discord server the team said “I didn't realise this until after I actually started playing the damn game a week after launch. The game is boring, bland, and the main draw of Bethesda games, exploration in a lively and handcrafted world, was completely gone.”

This damning statement comes after weeks of the game being kicked repeatedly. The game has lost so many players that it now has fewer active players than Skyrim; Fans believe the game is a missed opportunity; and the game was snubbed at The Game Awards. It’s safe to say that things aren’t going well, and while Bethesda are continually working on the game, it’s hard to know if modders will stick around. A final word from the mod team seems to sum up many feelings, “I won't be continuing development on Starfield Together. I'm not gonna put my heart and soul into a mod for a game as mediocre as this."
