Starfield's massive new update has brought back players in droves

Starfield's massive new update has brought back players in droves

A new Starfield update has added much-requested features to the Bethesda RPG

Months after the game was originally released, Starfield has seen a spike in players after an update earlier this month added requested features to the game and changed the title to be more in line with what players wanted from the Bethesda RPG.

According to TrueAchievements, the update has seen a player boost of over 70% on Xbox alone, meaning that the update has done exactly what it was intended to do. The game is currently sitting above popular titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Elden Ring, Dead By Daylight and ARK: Survival Evolved. Indeed, per SteamCharts, the game has seen an increase in player count of around 16% in the last thirty days, which covers the time period in which the patch was released.

The new Starfield patch added, among many other things, improved surface maps that make it a lot easier to figure out exactly where you are when you land on a planet, which was something that players complained about when the game was first launched back in September of last year. The other extremely notable feature that the update added is the ability to change the difficulty of the game with new options that are available in the settings menu. Fans can mess around with various sliders and settings, changing only one element of the game if they think that element is too easy for them or too hard for them.

There's also minor fixes to bugs and issues that have been plaguing users for a while now, and fans can now choose between either prioritizing visuals or performance mode in the game depending on their preferences. The full patch notes can be found on the official Bethesda site here.
