Starfield's updates aren't making enough changes, fans complain

Starfield is one of the biggest games to be released this year after being in development for a number of years.

Bethesda claims that Starfield is decades in the making, but now thanks to technical enhancements, the developer's vision of the intergalactic sci-fi RPG has now come to fruition. Granted, with just about any video game launch, it’s usually never totally perfect and post-launch updates are often required to iron out some kinks, and Starfield is no exception.

What’s more, it’s very common knowledge that Bethesda games can be quite buggy at launch and some even remain so years later. However, even by Bethesda's own admission, it intended Starfield to be its least buggiest game ever. Whether that intent remains true, I guess we’ll find out in the coming months.

Prior to Starfield’s launch, Bethesda already issued a number of updates to ensure that its release date went as smoothly as possible and there have been other updates since. The latest has arrived this week and despite including a feature that fans have been calling for, not everyone is happy.

So what’s the issue with the latest update, I hear you ask? Well, it seems that the issue is that it only includes four improvements. Update 1.7.36 adds Field of View sliders compatible with both first-person and third-person perspectives. It also improves stability for Intel Arc GPUs on PC, fixes an issue related to the quest ‘Echoes of the Past’ as well as adds various stability and performance improvements.

Since the release of the latest update, the Starfield user reviews on Steam have now dropped to ‘Mixed’ with comments such as, “After a recent update the game still crashes badly,” from user deejack69, plus “Runs like a**” from Rocknpool.

At the end of the day, gamers spend their hard-earned money on major titles such as Starfield or regularly pump money into the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. So it’s fair enough that some expect a certain standard. Hopefully, all of the fan's issues can be addressed in future updates.

Starfield is out now on PC and Xbox Series X|S. It is also available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers at no extra cost.
