Starfield drops below Fallout 76 to become Bethesda's lowest-rated game

Starfield drops below Fallout 76 to become Bethesda's lowest-rated game

Starfield has now dropped below Fallout 76 to become Bethesda's lowest-rated game of all-time.

Despite breaking player records, Bethesda’s latest RPG Starfield has become the studio’s lowest-rated game on Steam, dropping just below Fallout 76.

Releasing earlier this month and described as ‘Fallout in space’, Starfield is Bethesda’s latest addition to the RPG genre. Despite setting a new record for the studio by reaching 10 million players in the first few weeks, it hasn’t received the best reviews. As it stands, the game currently sits at a Mostly Positive rating on Steam with a total of 90,000 user reviews. However, almost 25,000 of these are negative which makes Starfield Bethesda’s lowest-rated game so far.

This is even more surprising considering Fallout 76 has had a rocky road since it was released in 2018. With a series of issues at launch, the most recent addition to the Fallout series has had to receive many patches to make it the game it is today. With Fallout 76 earning a 71.76% rating according to Steam DB figures, it is edging ahead of Starfield which currently sits at 71.38%.

There are many reasons why Starfield could be receiving negative reviews – infinite loading screens, unnecessary drama over pronouns which led to a series of review bombing, or even the constant crashes for some players at launch. However, with the game still in its early days since launch, players are finding ways to love it, including nods to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and even the occasional NSFW alien. It remains to be seen if Starfield has been harshly judged or if it deserves the rating it has received.

With more plans for the space RPG in the works, including the Shattered Space DLC arriving sometime in 2024, Bethesda is not done with Starfield. However, it remains to be seen if it will continue being the studio’s lowest-rated game so far.
