Starfield players in love with ‘game-changing’ free update

Bethesda has brought us some of the most beloved RPGs of all time including series’ such as Fallout and The Elder Scrolls, and a lot of hopes were pinned on Starfield being the next big thing.

Whether Starfield has proven to be the success that both Bethesda and Microsoft would have hoped, is debatable. At the very least it generated a lot of pre-launch hype and nearly six months after its launch, fans are still talking about Starfield for better or worse. That being said, the developers of Starfield are continually working hard to improve the experience for every fan which brings us to the topic of the most recent update.

The latest update for Starfield on PC is now live and it seems that the vast majority of fans are happy with the improvements that it has made. As detailed in a blog post, update 1.9.67 has added support for AMD FidelityFXTM Super Resolution 3 (FSR 3) and support for Intel Xe Super Sampling (XeSS). It also fixed reported issues related to disappearing clouds when using DLSS performance mode and a visual artefact which occurred when aiming a weapon or task swapping. There were also several fixes to bugs and overall stability.

“I just wanted to share my excitement about the recent update that dropped with FSR 3.0 and Frame Generation. It's an absolute game-changer for me,” exclaimed Redditor OkPain2022. “Despite owning an ageing RX 5700XT, I went from 40fps to 90fps in New Atlantis. The performance leap is monumental.” The Redditor also mentioned that a bug that was plaguing an old save file has since been removed.

“I thought people were exaggerating when they talked about the performance boost in the beta, but no, I went from 30fps to 70-80fps at 1440p... I even wonder if it's not the game that utilises FSR 3 the best,” replied EastWild0. “I launched the game just for five minutes to test the performance (I hadn't played it for two months), but without realising it, I completed two quests and built an outpost on a moon.”

“I just came back to it with a different attitude and really enjoyed it. The hype has died down and when you approach it as a sandbox first and a narrative-led game second it really helps,” explained MCgrindahFM. Sadly, the improvements made to Starfield courtesy of this update are exclusive to PC. That being said, hopefully, more visual and performance fixes are on the way to Xbox Series X/S soon.

Starfield is out now on PC and Xbox Series X/S. What’s more, it’s also included in the Xbox Game Pass subscription at no extra cost.
