Starfield players can now skip the game's most time consuming quest

Starfield players can now skip the game's most time consuming quest

Great news, if you dislike this quest

Starfield is one of the biggest games in recent times, not only in terms of pre-release hype but also with its in-game map size - and there’s a reason why some fans describe it as being Skyrim in space.

Released in September 2023 for PC and Xbox Series X/S, Starfield is the next big RPG from Bethesda following in the footsteps of the aforementioned Skyrim as well as Fallout 4 and more. Did Starfield live up to its pre-release hype? Well, that answer is subjective but at the very least, this sci-fi RPG has been the talk of the galaxy for several months.

Check out the Starfield trailer below!

In our review of Starfield, we said: “Bethesda has created a universe that, despite its vast scale, maintains interest and an impressive attention to detail throughout. The journey you embark on will dazzle you, and I have no doubt that players will be gripped for months, perhaps even years to come.”

Depending on how you play the game, it can take anywhere between 30 to 150 hours to complete Starfield. However, one of the main reasons why Starfield may take longer than it should is the boring Temples that feature in the main campaign.

Don't get me wrong, the Temples play a pivotal role in the story and help to unravel the mystery of Starfield. That being said, once you’ve encountered the first two or three Temples, they soon begin to feel like glorified fetch quests.

Thankfully, a modder named agd25 has taken matters into their own hands by removing the Temples entirely from the game. The mod that works such magic is called ‘Revelation - Main Quest Overhaul’ and it’s available to download now for free via Nexusmods.

“The main quest of Starfield is, like everything from Bethesda, a flawed masterpiece. The point of this mod is to fix that, by removing the flaws from the questline,” the description of the mod reads. “The number of Temples in the game has decreased from 240 to one.”

The description further explains that once you’ve completed the first Temple in Starfield, this mod will automatically grant you all the powers from the artefacts that you have already acquired. What’s more, all mentions of the other Temples will be removed from the game with all other story beats remaining intact.

According to the mod creator, ‘Revelation - Main Quest Overhaul’ is not only available for the PC version of Starfield but also for Xbox Series X/S via the Creation Club. My gut instinct was that this would be a PC-only deal, so this is welcomed news.

Starfield is available to buy now but is also included in Xbox Game Pass at no extra cost.
