Starfield first major mod is already being planned

Starfield truly is within touching distance now. Set to be released on 6 September, we’ll be beginning the one-month countdown by the end of the week.

Bethesda have created a whopper of a game. Starfield will feature over 1,000 planets and at least 100 of these will contain signs of life. I dread to think how long it’s going to take for those embarking on a completionist playthrough. Last week, we discovered more about the game’s various factions and branching paths. It also looks as if players will be able to decorate their own apartments and play as space samurais. The thing is, Starfield is only going to get bigger thanks to the incredible Bethesda modding community. Todd Howard has already described the game as a “modder’s paradise” - and the first major fan-made mod is already in the works.

Take a look at Starfield’s latest trailer down below.

You might expect a multiplayer mod to be the first to pop up as it’s so high in demand, but that’s not the case. As reported by VG247, modders are instead gearing up to create the Starfield Community Patch. The mod is “a collective effort by mod authors and the wider player community of Starfield to fix bugs, errors and other inconsistencies present in the game. This includes tweaks, typos and other changes that may have been missed (or not yet released) by the developers. The overall goal is to improve the vanilla experience for all players."

Bethesda games do have a reputation for being somewhat buggy, but hopefully that isn’t the case here. Todd Howard has already said that a ridiculous number of QA employees have been checking the game for months, leading to what he’s described as “the fewest bugs Bethesda has ever shipped with”.

Already, fans have spotted a small typo in a piece of gameplay footage. It’s not a dealbreaker by any means, but it’s nice that the modding group will be there to iron out any small creases to make for a better overall experience.
