Starfield's most concerning rumour has finally been confirmed

Starfield's most concerning rumour has finally been confirmed

No way to PC this one coming

Starfield's most concerning rumour has finally been confirmed, and PC gamers are the ones who will have to pay the price.

After years of waiting, Starfield is finally available in Early Access. Bethesda's latest has raked in some really positive reviews already - including a GAMINGbible 10/10 - but has also gotten lower scores from other outlets. You can't win 'em all.

Take a look at our review of Starfield in action below!

Unfortunately, now that Starfield is out in the wild, we have official confirmation of one of the game's most concerning rumours: the open-world RPG does not include support for Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

The PC version of Starfield only supports AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), as confirmed by modders who have finally managed to get their hands on the game's files.

Sure enough, a quick blast through Starfield's PC settings confirm there are but two upscaling options: FSR2 or FidelityFX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS). You can also turn off upscaling completely, if you'd rather. It's also worth noting that Starfield doesn't currently support Intel's supersampling tech, either.

This isn't really a huge surprise, since Bethesda and AMD partnered up to be exclusive besties for the release of Starfield. Even so, there are plenty of PC gamers who aren't exactly happy that there's no support for Nvidia's hugely popular tech.

The good news is that DLSS support being added somewhere down the line isn't out of the question. AMD's gaming chief Frank Azor explained to The Verge Bethesda can absolutely implement DLSS if it ever wants to. I suspect the demand will almost certainly be there, so perhaps this exclusivity deal will end up being a timed one.

"Starfield is without a doubt a monumental release - and not just because it's Bethesda’s first new IP in 25 years," we wrote in our glowing review of the game.

"The journey you embark on will dazzle you, and I have no doubt that players will be gripped for months, perhaps even years to come. Here is a playground where you can be whoever you want to be. I simply cannot stop thinking about Starfield and the wondrous secrets it still holds. Bethesda, I have one word: bravo."
