Say what you want about Starfield, the game is still giving us a lot of funny and scary content regardless of its quick fall from the pedestal it was perched atop prior to its launch. The latest tales from space come from a player who, on their 10th New Game Plus, has experienced some truly wild results.
It isn’t quite as unnerving as watching as an unknown cosmic horror start to swallow the room you’re in, but it definitely adds a new layer to the game some didn’t realise they were missing. Plus, it’s a lot more fun to behold than having to suddenly question all of time and space.
Not sure about Starfield? Then you need our review!
The player who has shared their discovery with the world is on their 10th Starfield playthrough using New Game Plus, but instead of getting some additional perks that make the game easier, the player ended up with an invisible character and an overpowered Phased Time ability, making everything incredibly slow. Handy if you want to go steal something or sneak past a horde of enemies I suppose, but extremely inconvenient when simply trying to get through the everyday grind of life in space.
One Redditor quipped that the OP’s character had suffered a “Fantastic Four-like event”, much to the amusement of the OP. It's well known by now that Starfield's New Game Plus can spawn interesting results, reflecting the game's multiversal nature. In some versions, Constellation is evil, in others it's made up entirely of children. In one instance, one player encountered a an evil adult Cora Coe. It's a fun feature from Bethesda.
Apparently, the Phased Time issue is more of a bug - and one that is “really common”, with many other users having to “button mash” their way to freedom. Although it’s funny to see someone moving like they’re walking through treacle, when you’re the person holding the controller, the laughter dies down quickly, followed only by annoyance and then rage.
Maybe it’s the love of glitches that has Stranger Things actor David Harbour so invested in Starfield…? After all, having revealed that he uses his Bethesda character to get “infinite money and steal things”, invisibility and Phased Time glitch would make the job super easy. Bang, and the items are gone!
